Last fall I wrote about The Audition--one of the most difficult parenting moments we've had. Liz ended up in the Green Mountain Youth Symphony--something we weren't expecting. It turned out to be a wonderful experience for her. She has grown musically and socially.
She had to re-audition this spring in order for the conductor to figure out which place she'll be in (and if he wanted her back). Here she is heading out the door for the audition. Quite a different scene from last year....thank goodness.
The conductor said she "nailed" her scale and liked the tricky song she had prepared for him.
It was audition week for Helen as well. She tried out for both dancing and singing parts in the Winter Revels. She was very, very nervous. It is quite competitive to get into the Revels chorus. This year's show takes place in the court of Queen Elizabeth, so she had to learn and perform an Elizabethan dance.
She'll still probably be in the show, even if she doesn't make the cut because her Morris Dancing team will probably perform. She waits anxiously for the news.
