Junior Reese DeArment shares her point of view from her All-State experience.
November 8, 2021
All-State auditions were nothing like I expected them to be. I knew I would sing in front of a judge for the audition, however, I wasn’t aware of how nerve-racking it would be. Our audition group just walks into a room with a single judge, sings, and then walks out. Then comes the long period of time waiting for the recall list and accepted list.
Upon getting to the school at 5:00 a.m., we received the cuts of the songs we would be required to sing. Then, up until our audition time, you study those cuts and make sure you have your notes down. I was very happy with the cuts and felt very prepared, however, I was still very nervous to stand in front of that judge. The audition ended up going very well, and I am proud of myself for performing my best and working hard on the seven songs.
