This year two choir students attended the auditions. Freshman Britany Willimann and sophomore Anna Miller are those students. These ladies must know their parts and pitches to get every measure of the music right.
“The overall experience was great,and I think it helped me as a singer, “ commented Britany.
Another large part of the score is sight reading. There is really no way to prepare for sight reading, given that the judges do not provide the audition piece to the candidates until they walk through the door of the auditioning room. These pieces are totally random, and the scores are based off of the student’s ability to read music and match pitch just by reading the music for the very first time.
These auditions were held on Monday, September 29, 2014. Anna and Britany left school at 1:00 p.m to make their way to Hillsboro.
"District choir was fairly fun but hard. I wish I would've practiced more," commented Britany.
Anna Miller made it through the auditions and is now a part of the All- District Choir for the 2014-2015 school year. Congratulations, Anna! -by Karissa Durbin
