In The Recording Room

March 7, 2023

And even with the amount of time poured into reading sheet music, it is evident that nothing can quite prepare these musicians and vocalists for the bundle of nerves that come with the recording of the auditions, whether it be strictly statewide or regional. 

“The hardest part is just getting the courage to go into the recording room,” Sears said. “I was incredibly nervous, and that definitely impacted how I felt about my audition, but the people recording it were so nice and Mr. Fabela gave me a little pep talk which helped a lot.” 

However, once the nerves wore off, the talent was able to shine through and eventually turn into excitement a few weeks later. 

I am most excited to get out of Wyoming for a big music competition. Last month I went to Montana, and it was a very wonderful experience to just meet more people. I think All-Northwest brings a wider diversity of people that I’m not used to playing with.

“I found out yesterday [Nov. 28] when I walked into class and a few people told me congratulations,” sophomore Julian Frost said. “I was confused about what they were referring to, and it was when I looked at the whiteboard in front of that class where it said, ‘Congratulations for making it to All-State’ … I kinda just started jumping around and yelling. I’m really looking forward to being able to sing in a way more experienced choir and be able to make great music.”
