Suddenly, with the concert only 3 days away, the conductor decided that we would sing the first and last piece of "O Fortuna" in Carmina Burana by memory! How I wish I had been memorizing it all along, since last summer when we first started rehearsing. Since the music is so repetitious, getting the words in order is an incredible challenge! I hope I don't make people on the subway, on the sidewalks where I walk, and in the school halls nervous when they see this foreign woman mouthing words to herself!
