The 10am choir and the 3pm choir at IWE has joined forces to put on an Easter Cantata performance. I am the token pale face in the choir as most are Koreans or other internationals who have naturally darker complexion.
It is hard to blend in. I am automatically looked to for pronunciation on words in the cantata. I think it is funny because even Americans don't always pronounce biblical words the same way. Jerusalem, Hosanna, Alleluia. They aren't exactly English words with set pronunciation. I just give them my pronunciation and we get on with the song.
The director conducts in Korean and so he'll give instructions and I have to figure out what and where I need to sing. It is a fun challenge.
