Spring Extravaganza


Hey blog world! Tonight my school had a spring extravaganza. It was a desert and silent auction and entertainment was provided by the students! At first I didn’t even know if I’d be able to make it! The second Dad and I left the house and the door was closed and locked Dad realized he’d left the house and car keys INSIDE! I was freaking out and worrying we wouldn’t make it to the show. I had to call Mom on my cell and get her to drive from my Neice’s Brownie ceremony to the house so she could let us in! Thankfully we made it with plenty of time to spare! When the show started the choir (which I’m a member of) was up first and we sang “Change The World” by Eric Clapton http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x11NA63gLDM. I think it sounded really good! Then we had some performances by other students. One girl performed “Stay” by Rihanna http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8t7fLDtgtuE, a trio of people (2 girls and a guy) did “Here Comes The Sun” by the Beatles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj1AesMfIf8 and the girl that performed “Stay” and another girl did a duet of “The Cave” by Mumford and Sons http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMO4xdOS5jY. Also someone played the piano. I forget the name of the piece they played! The Jazz band played a song too. They sounded awesome! Next up was a fashion show! The kids in the fashion design class made a bunch of outfits and people got to model them! The students modeled the outfits and also our Vice Principal and some of the teachers modeled as well! That was fun to watch! After the first half of the fashion show we got to have our desert auction. There was an enveloppe on each table and we all chipped in some money. Your table’s turn to go up was determined by how much money you paid. When it was your table’s turn you all got to go up to a big table and pick out a desert to eat while watching the rest of the performances. When it was my tables turn we picked a box of cupcakes. There were 6 cupcakes so we got 1 each. I chose a vanilla cupcake with oreo cookies on it. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good either. It was quite dry. I washed it down with a nice glass of tea. When the intermission finished we had the 2nd half of the fashion show. I loved all the clothes that were modeled! The students did such a great job! Then 2 students (one on guitar and singing and the other on drums) played “Good People” by Jack Johnson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxuCLopcEy4. I thought they were pretty good. The drummer was quite loud though. After that the Jazz band played one more time. Then someone sang “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKY5rbYm324. Unfortunately the choir was called into the music room so I didn’t get to hear it. Oh well! When we got back into the gym (where the concert was taking place) we listened to the teacher band play. They did “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhwwCWkmYoc and also they did a song by The Who. I forget what it was called! Then to end off the night the choir sang again. We did “We Will Rock You” by Queen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMLiqEqMQyQ. I made a few small mistakes but nobody noticed so that was good! At the end everyone thought we did great! One of the teachers even said “You rocked us!” I had such a great time tonight and can’t wait to see what the choir has in store next! Are you in your school’s choir? Do you like it? Why or why not? Tell me in the comments!
