Fall Choir concert

Last year Kendra got to audition for the top choir at her school--the varsity choir.  She made it, and she really loves it!  She had her first concert on October 17th.  As usual, I was duly impressed with what her director can accomplish in a short 7 weeks!

I think she looks lovely, but she really hates the choir dresses!

I forgot my good camera!  Ugh...iPhone pics in bad lighting. :-(
On a side note, Kendra had the opportunity to audition for all-region choir.  This choir is comprised of 7th and 8th graders from 4 districts locally.  They had a Saturday rehearsal, then had sectionals before and after school for several weeks in preparation.  The audition took most of a Saturday morning (mostly because I volunteered to be the parent-in-attendance and ride the bus to help out the director).  The kids were told they would receive a phone call from their director by 6:00 p.m. if they made it.  Kendra has three close girlfriends in choir and they were anxiously texting each other as the time grew closer.  Kendra was thrilled to receive a call, and she made it!  She placed 9th chair out of around 60 girls who auditioned in her room, and was selected to participate in the "top mixed choir" which is the best-of-the-best.  It was bittersweet, though, as only one of the three close buddies also made it.  She's definitely entered the time in her life where this kind of thing is going to happen a lot, especially since she's in music and theater.  The awesome thing is that her friends are so awesome and supportive of each other.  The all-region choir has an all-day rehearsal coming up next weekend and it will culminate in a concert for parents.  I'm looking forward to it, and I'll bring the good camera!!!
