Choir makes me want to pee myself. I first started singing in 4th grade in the Swing Choir. I still remember bits and pieces from our rehearsals and outings. But, I don't know how good we were... but, I suppose that doesn't matter, right? I was in choir 5th grade, but when I got to Middle School, chorus wasn't offered to the 6th graders. So, I began singing again in 7th grade. We had two concerts that year; one in winter, and one in spring. Our choir was the best out of all three (the others were 8th grade, and then the HS.)... and continued to be the following year.
This year, our freshman year in High School, our incredible choir had to be broken up. The 10 strongest singers were placed in Treble Ensemble, which is what I'm taking. Treble Ensemble is only for the second semester - Mixed Chorus being only for the first. So, these past 18 weeks I felt what it's like not to have choir - and I cannot do that ever again. In exactly 9 days, I will begin Treble Ensemble. I'm very excited to begin this new experience! I am happy to say, though, that next year I will have enough room in my schedule to participate in both Treble Ensemble and Mixed Chorus.
Throughout these years, I met the best director or teacher I have ever had. Miss S. She's that kind of genuine person everyone needs in their lives... despite the age difference, I am very close to her, and we can talk about almost anything. At the end of 7th grade choir, we exchanged email addresses so we could keep in touch over the summer. Miss S has helped me in so many ways, in ways that I don't think anyone else ever would be able to.
Well... I know some people with better choir stories :::cough.cough::: but yeah... dat be mine. Heh.
(Oh... & for Treble Ensemble, we're planning on doing ABBA!)
