got romeo and juliet test on mon
i really cant stand analysing these lit pieces
what's the point?
how do you know the writer's intention for writing a certain piece?
you... psychic???!?!
how do you know the writer isnt tossing and turning in his/her grave, jus cause the commonly accepted interpretation of his works is totally south?!?!
how do you know that the author didnt jus write that piece for fun?!?!
oh well...
gotten most of it out of my system now... :)
back to catching up
i missed like 1 month of school this term...

choral excellance

oh well
choral festival concert 2morrow...
so fast!!!
its been a really fun experience!
i must say... MRS VALARIE WILSON ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!
!!!
wooo!!!!
anyhow i'm singing 2 really cool songs
Vem Kan Segla Forutan Vind
which is actually a sweedish folksong arranged by Mrs Wilson
it is really really nice, how mrs wilson focuses on creating space with the music
and the way she starts of the song... its... hauntingly beautiful... for a lack of a better term.
the second song is Salut De La Veille Des O
which is a REALLY cool piece which has 2 parts clashing almost all the time.
strangely, i can see the beauty in all the clashes
our guest choir is the piedmont choir all the way frm san fransisco USA
they are really gd... but guess what... their an SSA choir
so... it kinda feels weird for me 2 go talk to them...
i mean... i'm not used to being surrounded by estrogen...
anyways
i'm also singing 2 songs with the piedmont choir
a jazz piece called take the a train and a jap number called tsubasa
their really nice and catchy
and since there are only 4 acs pple and only 2 in my choir (im the only 1 in my section), i've become somewhat 'best friends' with the RI guy in my section... (:
oh well... come for the choral fest concert (my choir has abt 7 tix left). i'm sure u wont b disappointed!!!

Haven

Haven the musical: a blast from the past with great music.
The storyline, i think, brings out something in everyone, even the audiences...
The storyline is beautiful
The music is (most) wonderful... even inspirational
I've now (believe it or not) come to develop a certain bond to the musical
but i've been severly disappointed
I've been called down to waste my time at rehearsals
It is stressed that we (the chorus) is needed... BADLY!!!
but it is not show!!!
like today, we were supposed to be slotted into the dance for the song 'to be or not to be'
but guess what? we spent the rehearsal practicing the dance BACKSTAGE!!
we didnt even get slotted in!
i have one more thing 2 comment about at this time: the cast
probably 10-15% of the cast is actually committed to this musical; dedicated to the musical
and the rest? i feel that they arent taking anything seriously
comon they KNOW what commitment and dedication is! there is probably a representative from every other major sport or club/society in the musical. dont come and tell me that they do not know the meaning of dedication!!
the actual thing is 1 month away, and there is 0 stress here!! it really feels like no one is taking anything seriously!
i really feel that the lack of dedication from the cast is a major flaw which should have been sorted out from the start!
additionally, i keep hearing untrue, biased and totally uncalled for comments about the chorus!
i feel that the chorus is (in a way) doing the cast a BIG favor!
in most musicals, the cast should be self-sufficient! there is no need for a back-up chorus! and here we are, backing the cast up...
i mean, it is totally excusable that the cast cant sing, cause lets face it, the cast was probably chosen based on their acting skill and not their singing skills with the exception of a few...
We're even putting the choir's name at stake! if the musical turns out to be a flop, people would begin to generalize the choir as bad just because we were part of the musical!
but all i can say now is this:
i'm part of haven. i'm dedicated to haven. not just because the choir made a dedication to be part of this musical, but also because i believe in this musical, because i want to be proud of this musical. i have decided that i will tolerate all things that are out of human hands, uncontrolable things, but i will not make a promise to not complain. i have also decided to suffer silently the injustice doled out to the choir, and find any chance possible to prove everyone wrong: that the ACS(Independent) choir a good choir.
God will make a way, when there seems to be no way;
He works in ways we cannot see...
Maybe there is something for the choir at the end of this
maybe there is that light at the end of the tunnel
it may be the oncomming train
or we may just be to blinded to see the goodness in that light
all i can do is hope and pray and trust in the Lord
entrust everything into his hands

everything happens for a reason... nothing in this world is coincidential

p.s. all i have jus said is from a personal standpoint.
