Thread Name: Using a music stand
Subject: RE: Using a music stand
Don, funny you should write in just then. I almost started my last post by saying how much I agree with you, which I totally do. Your last post caught my eye and spurred me to add more to the thread.

There are certain types of venues, such as the music hall, where that is totally appropriate. And Pavaroti can do anything he wants as far as I am concerned.

My post was directed to choices that we make as traditional and folk singers. Like many mudcat threads, people write a lot about what they do and why, which is all very good, it gives perspective. Then some write in to say "do what ever you want - it is all great", which I find unhelpful, unless they define when it is all great (such as music hall prompter use). I just wanted to direct things a bit differently... gotta go.
