If I thought January, February, and March were bad, April is even crazier! As of now, West Side Story is over, Yearbook is over, and I have more free time after school. You would think that I would have all the time in the world right? WRONG!
Despite having minimal involvement in our school’s talent show (Air Guitar) this year, it is a very busy time. Madrigals performing “Some Nights” took time to learn choreography and eight part harmonies. A weekend later (last weekend) our Concert Choir performed in San Luis Obispo. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Why are you complaining about stress when you’re spending time at the beach.” I have no comeback to that but I will let you know when I think of one!
If you’re reading this on the weekend, I am in Hollywood! Due to the expensiveness of most festivals, our Madrigals decided to take a road trip to SoCal in lieu of a festival this year. We will be hitting up Hollywood Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard, Santa Monica, and ending all festivities with a recording in a studio and day at Disneyland! I am beyond excited for my last Madrigals trip!
Finally, the crown jewel to any senior year: Prom. April 27, the Senior Class of 2013 proudly presents: Lucky 13! A Vegas themed prom, this year’s location will be at the exquisite Grand Hotel in Fresno. Among endless dancing, this prom will include a “slushy bar,” card tables, and chaperones resembling various figures in Vegas (i.e. Elvis, not hookers). Tickets are on sale now at $55. Next week, they will be $60 Monday and Tuesday only. Then they are GONE! Spread the word regarding prom, even if you are in no way affiliated with the high school!
I would appreciate word of mouth and sharing these articles via Facebook. Much appreciated!
Editor’s Note: KRL did attend Air Guitar at RHS and there were quite the variety of acts and a lot of talent! We are happy to report that one of our own, Joseph Ham, won first place with a Frank Sinatra song!
