The other day, I sent off an application to audition for the Chorus of the Lyric Opera of Chicago. If they ask me to audition, this will be the third time that I will have sung for them. I’ve sung at least that many times for the Metropolitan Opera chorus, with no result. This may help me to decide whether I ever audition for a major opera chorus again. I could really use the steady, $60,000 income, but enough’s enough.
