Hi Jasper. I think we have all probably suffered from dry mouth at some time or other in our career. Luckily I don't personally suffer from it for quintet concerts. However, if you are doing a solo performance and suddenly get dry mouth on stage, you can try to gently bite the back of your tongue with your molars. Not hard enough to draw blood, but hard enough to stimulate production of saliva. One of my colleagues takes medication which affects his production of saliva and he finds citrus fruits useful- this is more difficult once you are on stage (!) but you could try eating a small amount of satsuma/orange a few minutes before going on?
Good Luck,
Katy
