being an alto kind of sucks sometimes because a lot of the time choir directors will put the girls that are tone-deaf regardless of their range in the alto section because ‘low tones are not as easy to hear so if they’re pitchy you cant tell’
but fuck is it hard to sing when you’re surrounded by a good third of a section singing in a completely different key like please kill me
