Seven questions with sophomore KMEA singer Caitlin Alley
What is KMEA and when will you audition for it?
KMEA is a state choir that you audition for with a bunch of kids from Kansas high schools. We audition Saturday, Nov. 10.
How do you feel about being selected to audition for KMEA?
I feel lucky to be able to audition because it’s a big thing and I’m a first-timer.
Was there a lot of competition for these spots?
We had to audition for the soprano and alto sections, but it was friendly competition. I’m a soprano.
Was your audition nerve-wracking?
It wasn’t really nerve-wracking. It was just in front of Mrs. Stoppel.
What work have you done to prepare yourself to audition for this spot?
Definitely practiced my music. I went to Mrs. Stoppel and asked what would make me the best.
Which choir are you a part of here at school?
Do you sing publicly other than here at school?
I sing in the worship team at my church, called Westbrook Church. I also sing in the Allegro Kansas City choir. The one I’m in is called Allegro Con Moto. It’s made of girls from sixth grade to sophomore year.
