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.
