Oh, how neat. I just saw an area middle school chorus was chosen to sing at a big event for chorus teachers. It's apparently a huge honor, and must be something new because I never heard of it in 4th- 12th grade chorus years. And besides, we would have won. We never lost a single competition, until our teacher left just before our senior year and we ended up with woman who made us sing Disney songs in costumes. Not nearly as impressive as complicated songs in German and Latin. It was pretty pathetic.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
