STRESS!!!!!!

Ugh!! I am so stressed right now. Between the all region choir auditions, the SAT and just plain old school, I have a lot to do right now. I also have volleyball, dance, DI and I have to get up at 5:30 to go to basketball which starts a hour before school.

I have choir auditions this Saturday and the SAT is on the same day. So I have to finish the SAT and then I have to go to the audition really quickly so that I actually will be able to audition. I have to prepare for both of those so I will do good and not fail. So I have to take a SAT practice test when I can and I also have to practice all of my choir pieces.

Another source of stress is my Friday. I have DI right after school and then right after DI I have to come home and get ready for dance. As a result I am always late for dance class (and my teacher isn’t too happy about that) and I have to leave DI early (which I hate doing), but Di will be over in March which is sad and happy because, no more DI 🙁 , but less stress 🙂 !

I hope that I won’t be this stressed next year and that summer will come faster, so I can just laze around, eat and watch netflix each day…

All-Region

In 2 weeks I have to go to Pflugerville Middle School for All-Region Choir auditions. ♪♫

I have to go to PMS (Pflugerville Middle School) on January 24. The problem is that I need to take the SAT on that day, so I get a late time slot around 2:00. Even then, it will be hard to get there. I am carpooling with my friend, Sarah, and we both are trying out. She is a soprano 1 (which is the highest part) and I am a soprano 2 (which is the lowest part).

The auditions are blind auditions, which means that the judges can’t see you and you can’t see the judges. Also the judges don’t know anybody’s name; everybody gets numbers instead. You have to learn 4 pieces (this year’s pieces are: Safe and Sound, She Sings, Aya Ngena, and Sonatemi un Balleto) then about a week from the audition they announce the 2 pieces that they will actually hear you sing. After that, like 2 days away from the audition, they tell you which part of the songs they want to hear. Finally, you audition.

We have been practicing for the competition for 2 weeks, and I really want to get in.  The hardest pieces in my opinion are Sonatemi un Balleto (it’s in italian) and She Sings.

Comment below if you have ever auditioned!!!
