Break a leg everyone at Mill City today!
I hope you’ve had a rather glittery New Year!
So it is 2014, new year, new posts! I apologize for my leave of absence but Show Choir Problems/Perks will be returning full force. If you have suggestions for a Show Choir Problem please submit them; the more the merrier! If you have a Show Choir PERK, there should be a link in the home page or go to showchoirperks.tumblr.com and submit there! Hope to hear from you all soon!
And for those of you competing in the Mill City Show Choir Festival in MA next weekend, see you there! ;)
I couldn’t go myself but others have told me what incredible talent was there and how amazing the experience was
Can’t wait to see the rest!
"If you’re out there," keep an eye out for my tribe and I ;)
Break a leg and may the best show choir win! (Plus i’ll be there competing in the chamber choir and mixed show choir competitions and cheering everyone on)
Weird but important question.
You have a wonderful blog - seeing one of your posts is the highlight of my day! :) I have a question - when you joined, did everyone know how to sing somewhat professionally (they knew how to do a vibrato and riffs and complicated runs and such) and if there were people that did, did they more solos and singing time than the ones that didn't? And by the end of the semester (term, year, etc) did everyone know how to do those things? Thanks so much! (I'm thinking of joining SC :)
I suppose it all depends on which show choir you are auditioning for at what school. Some show choirs are very selective depending on the amount of people auditioning as well as the talent pool and popularity of show choir at that school. In my experience with show choir, my school has two different choirs so if you can carry a tune and pick up on dance steps fairly well then you are in. Typically, when directors choose soloists, they may not be the ones who have the most complex singing. Often directors will look for someone who has the sound and feel of the solo, which may be anything: vibrato, straight-toned, pop voice, operatic voice, ability to riff and run or not. If you are deciding whether to audition or not based on these, I would say to just go ahead and audition. You’re going to miss out on something wonderful if you let worries like these get in the way. There’s nothing to lose just by auditioning! Break a leg :)
