On my Winter Advanced Choir Concert I was both excited and worried... It started like this...
As I woke up, I realized that it was my first Concert that year.
I was very excited as I said. There was 1 hour till the three hour rehearsal. I got ready and went down to school. We practiced everything from the beginning of the songs till the end. Not missing anything.
Then came the time to see how we will be going ON stage and going OFF of the stage.
It was complicated because first there were 3 basses singing together, then there was a song that we had decided to do around all the audience, also after that song we had to go on stage for the next song by the Selected Group. Last, the choir had to come up.
When we finished the rehearsal I was relieved!! I was really tired.
I went home and rested a little then it was time to go to the hairdresser. We were a little late to the rehearsal before the concert but Ms. Yara said it was fine. We go on stage in our long dresses -- which were to the floor -- and started singing. One by one the people started coming. In a while, the whole auditorium was full.
It was time to start the concert. We did the first 3 songs without the choir then they came up and we sang. As I was going to my section for the songs, I remembered that there were MANY people and a video taper that was filming the whole thing. He was coming right in front of our faces. As I got to my spot I felt scared, worried that I'd get a wrong note and ruin the song, happy, excited, and most of all I felt that I had achieved something. So I got to my spot and sang for 1 and a half! It was beautiful. Everyone clapped a lot! I had fun.
After that my sister, mom, dad, and I, went out to dinner.
But after that day, I had to do the same exact thing for the next concert. Because always, when there is a Winter Choir Concert, we have 2 concerts instead of 1. But I thought that it was fine and I got used to it.
