One time when my music theory professor was a student in college, he had to accompany an extremely rude soprano for a recital. She treated him like dirt during rehearsals. Just before going on to perform, she made some really snide remark to him that ticked him off, so he transposed the piece up a half step. She cracked three times.
Always be nice to your accompanists, folks.
There is a special place in hell for people that are rude to their accompanists
My Mom said the cutest thing today. She said all of us on here are like “cyber hippies”. All about preaching peace, love, freedom, and human equality. Letting our hair grow. And not wanting to do much work. I dont know about you but that sounds pretty spot on.
