Welcome to my life.
This Wednesday, I had my first musicale on Wednesday. For anyone that doesn't know, a musicale is not the same thing as a musical. Anyway, I am currently in mixed elementary chorus where we have been diligently working on our pieces we've been given. Some of them were quite hard (*cough* Laetatus Sum) and some of them got us all dancing (Dubula and Shout Glory). In the beginning of the year, I wasn't excited at all about being in a chorus. It just seemed so pointless to me. Little did I know that it would teach me new repertoire, how to work well with other singers, and it forced me to practice my sight reading. The most important thing it has done, is that it created a community. I am so thankful for the oppurtunities that this school has brought me, especially chorus. At first I didn't think we did very good after the performance, (even though we had so much energy from being on stage, I couldn't possibly feel upset), but after watching the video's, I thought we sounded pretty good. The support we got from the other choruses and the whole audience really put a smile on my face. Girls chorus cheered for us like no tomorrow and gave us standing ovations. (Which means a lot, considering they're set was fricken awesome. Definitely try to find a video of it). The musicale was so much fun and a great introduction to the LaGuardia stage.
If anyone wants to see the set, here are some videos my mom took.
