I'm going to sing for the Dalai Lama!!!!!
So, I get up today and come on the internet as usual and what's in my inbox? Mr. Horning e-mailed me asking if I wanted to be in the choir to sing for the Dalai Lama!
Here's the e-mail he sent me...
Dear Kayla and parents,
I have been approached by a UBC student, Hussein, who is on the Youth Board of the BC Choral Fed,
conductor of the Islamai Youth Choir and is organizing a Youth Peace Choir for a special tribute to the Dalai
Lama at the Orpheum Theatre on Mon., April 19. The concert is already sold out apparently. The DL will be in
attendance and the choir will be made up of youths from all over the lower mainland. I would like to put your
name forward for this, Kayla. I have been asked to recommend a quartet of singers from our Youth Choir-
SATB as well as up to 4 extra girls ~ SSAA. This is to balance the BC Boys’ Choir submissions. This would be
a once in a lifetime opportunity for you. I am not sure of the rehearsal schedule but the first rehearsal is Sat.,
Let me know right away if this interests you.
I'm *SO* excited about this. I tried to phone Max like three times to tell him and he's not home. It's making me rather angry. I almost phoned Chelsea because I needed to tell someone and when I told Carlene she said it was weird because she's never really seen me excited about anything before. I ended up talking to Kirstin about it and telling some kid from the Netherlands off Iyari that added me to her contact list.
This is so incrediblly cool. I'm going to sing for the freakin' Dalai Lama.
Anyways, it's going to be Max, Aaron, Miranda and Ashley and then Lindsay, Spot, Step and I in the other one. I'm so excited. That's like half of Concordiae! This is practically like Mr. Horning saying we're in the top 8 people in the choir. Except it's really not; Lindsay thinks it has a lot to do with commitment, but that's okay. I'm just going to keep believing that I'm special.
I still haven't told Mom or Dad because they haven't phoned or anything, and I'm talking to Lindsay now. She invited me to go out for dinner with her and Spot to celebrate. I think I'm going to go. It should be fun.
I got ahold of Max on his cell and told him. He got a new dijjeridoo (I have no idea how to spell that) today.
Carlene's cleaning her room. You can actually see the floor. It's kind of scary. She wants a big bed so I'm going to let her have the extra one in my room and I'm probably going to take the chair she has in her room and a table from mom's room to put my shit on.
Anyways, I should go now, I've got to make dinner and do homework and help Carlene move things.
