DAY NINE- “Louder” Pose
Texas State Chorale came to my school during Choir and performed for us. It was honestly such an awesome experience. They sang a lot of different types of songs but I’ll just write about the ones that stood out the most. They sang this one South African song that I thought was so super duper cute. There was an African drum beat and a shaker thingy too so it sounded really tribal-y. I wanted to get up and dance and hug everyone in the room. It’s one of those feel-good songs that makes you wanna love everyone around you, you know? LOL. Then they sang a song called “Give Me Your Eyes” which is a song about everyone coming together to help the less fortunate. They were standing all around us and that added to the effect. After that they invited us onto the risers to sing Ballade to the Moon. Oh my goodness it was so beautiful :’) As someone else in class said, “I was beyond moved by the incredible music today. There was such passion and emotion behind what they were singing, I couldn’t help but connect to it. It is amazing how much music and art can effect a person.“ Afterwards we had some time to mingle, and this lady I was talking to said you can take choir in college even if you’re not majoring in Music. I may consider that… we’ll see.
Then at night I went to get dumplings and I was surprised to see this guy from choir working there LOL. He saw me and he waved and said hi. I thought it was kinda cute since we never really talk in choir. But yeah the order took a while. I was so hungry I devoured dat shiz on the way to Grace’s and spilled dumpling sauce on my shirt. Smooth. Brit, Grace, and I helped put together the entertainment program scouts are setting up. Then we did research on Vietnamese New Years and found songs for the fashion show. We had a good time but I think we were all really tired lol
