Darryl wrote:   <<I don't rehearse extra with soloists, and I always ask the singer, "do = you know the music, and have it in my key?">>   Does this mean that you, the professional, paid accompanist, require the = singer to sing in your key? I thought the accompanist played in the = singer's key. Being a bass-baritone, there is much music for weddings = that I would sing (if I did that any more) that would not be in the = traditional key. I assume the same is true for many other singers who are = singing standards for soprano/tenor but are low voices and vice versa. Am = I way off on this or misunderstanding something?
