Guess what!

Sorry to get back so late to you guys!

Guess what!

I got into the Houston Girls Chorus!

My mom called me and said "Hey, guess what!  Dear Megan,
Congratulations – you have been accepted as a member of this year’s Houston Girls Chorus!"  I turned a few crappy cartwheels that day, even hit a wall and bruised my ankle (hahaha).  :D

We had our first rehearsal on Sunday and, oh my goodness,  they are so nice, so talanted, and just plain amazing!

The older girls who have been training a lot longer than me are a little intimidating because of their talent, but it's still SOOO much fun!  I all ready made a new friend who is also homeschooled!  :D

Okay, I know I promised to post a video of me singing the songs from my audition, but at the moment I haven't gotten the oppurtinity to do so--the little ones come knocking on my door when I try to record myself.  -_-  As soon as I get the chance to record myself, I promise that I will post it.  If I don't, you're more than welcome to remind me!  XD

So the side stuff HGC will be doing sounds AMAZING!  We're literally going to be touring Galveston, and performing at the same time!  And when we perform at the nutcracker, we'll be IN THE ORCHESTRA PIT!  Right there, front and center, in front of EVERYONE!  :D :D :D :D

It's so amazing, I can not wait to continue in it.  :D

Oh, and side thing.  I'm performing at my church talent show with my voice teacher, her husband, my mom, and a few people in our church choir.  I'm going to have my friend record us with my camera so I can post the video.  It's a great arrangement of the song "How Can I Keep From Singing?"  It's so fun.  ^_^

All for now, folks!  Will get back to you as soon as I can.  :D

Awesome news!

Wow, long time no blog.  Sorry, my life has been ridiculously busy since June. 

Okay, so I have the best news ever!

Guess who has an audition to be in the Houston Girls Chorus on September 8th? 

Have you guessed yet?  Correct!  Moi! 

I am super, super excited.  The Chorus has 2 major performances a year, and another performance at the Nutcracker Houston Ballet!  How cool is that?!  :D

I will be singing 2 songs for my audition.  One is an Italian piece, and the other is a Broadway selection.

First song:

Se tu m'ami

Second Song:
How Could I Ever Know - The Secret Garden

Wish me luck!
