To be voiceless is one of the most anxiety producing states for a singer such as I. I need to sing. For the last 10 days I have been quite nervous about the state of my voice. From 2 days of only being able to whisper to 8 of speaking an octave below my usual register I am wondering if I will be able to perform in the upcoming Mozart/Taneyev concert.
I have received all kinds of advice and have followed most of it. I have drank pots of tea with honey, lemon and whiskey in various combinations. I have rubbed Vicks VapoRub on chest, back, neck and feet.
