I forgot to mention, I have a solo in this year's show. I believe I said a while ago that eventually solos would become so unexceptional that they wouldn't be worth mentioning anymore. But I'll mention a Revels solo, because that's in front of a thousand people. :) It's eight words long (with a repeat, for a total of 16) and two other people are singing at the same time, but I have the soprano line, so I'm the one you hear, so it still counts as a solo. Me! All singing and stuff! (This was the thing I was supposedly singing flat.)
And you know what? I don't get remotely nervous. The first couple of times before doing it for an audience, I got a burst of oh-my-god-it's-coming-up stomach-dropping adrenaline about five minutes before we went on, but the feeling was over in a second. Once I'm out there, I'm in costume, the audience is blurry (my glasses: not early-1800s), and I'm surrounded by other chorus members, and the solo just pops out in the middle of a song. All very easy. Yay.
Unfortunately, I also didn't mention to anyone who's coming to see the show that I have a solo, so they're all reading my name in the program later and being like, hey, wait, I missed that!
