My summer consisted of hanging out with friends, Vocal Jazz camp, LXC, voice lessons, and Shrek the Musical.
This summer I was kept busy by several activities but also had a lot of fun with my friends. My summer started when I had my wisdom teeth taken out the first week of June. So much fun. Later in June, I attended the Steve Zegree Vocal Jazz camp at IU! Zegree is the director of the IU Singing Hoosiers, which I hope to participate in if I attend IU Bloomington next year. I learned a lot about the history of jazz music, jazz music theory, and how to incorporate the jazz style in my singing. I was also involved in the JCT production of Shrek the Musical. This was quite the experience because I had to learn how to tap dance. My summer mornings consisted of 7am cross country practice. I had a great time with the team but the early mornings weren't quite as fun. In July, I participated in the Voice Recital of Mr. Cahalan's voice students. It is always exciting to hear my friends show off their vocal talent and share mine as well. When I wasn't busy with these activities I enjoyed the summer by swimming, going to the fair, and just hanging out with friends. Summer 2014 was a blast and I can't wait for 2015 when I will travel to Canada for a week! :)
