mellicious: pink manicure (fireworks)
[personal profile] mellicious
I told [livejournal.com profile] columbina  that there was only one chapter left in the musical saga - I was thinking about college - but I think I lied about that, because I left the story hanging halfway through my senior year of high school, and I guess I ought to talk a bit more about that. First of all, I did make All-State Choir - I said that in a vague way in the last entry - and I made it in pretty convincingly. I wasn't the first one picked, but I wasn't the last one, either, or even next to last - I don't actually remember where in the middle I was, any more. It was a long time ago, and I remember a lot of that day pretty vividly, but I don't remember that. The reward for making it was most of a week off of school, and you got to go to the Texas Music Educator's Convention - very exciting, eh? - but it was in San Antonio, and we got to stay at the Menger, and we did a lot of rehearsing and did two concerts - one with just the choir and one together with the All-State Band and Orchestra. We thought it was great.

(Heh, look, here's this year's audition music. Some things never change. But this is new - a camp at Baylor to prepare you for the auditions. Figures. And gee, the choir has a MySpace page!)

I'll have to put up some pictures when I dig all that stuff out - I think I have the program and everything. I have an album of the choir singing, too - but it's on vinyl, naturally, so I don't know if I'll ever get to hear it again. (I know there are places that will transfer them onto CD for you - aren't there? but who knows if I'll ever get around to it.)

Ooh, here we are:
Alvin All-State Choir members, 1977

Ha, I just noticed the caption to that picture says "4000 choral, bank, orchestra and elementary music"... Yes, those bank students sure can play up a storm!
