Yesterday Megan was a little bit anxious about her upcoming seating auditions today. (Where musicians in the symphony audition to see what rank they are in, which determines which chair they sit in.) So she put a post on Facebook… that ended up with 82 replies!
Such a simple post. The replies it generated were quite interesting, though.
Her friend Matthew:
There once was a violist in Baber,
Who practiced each night with a saber
He could not play
So we sent him away,
And now he plays with chamber
Her friend Ariel, who plays the viola:
Is that a rhyme, matt? cause here’s one: Violas are awesome, so go buy a possum
Her friend Mandy:
Megan walked into auditions
dreading her Tchaikovsky rendition.
Despite what she reckoned,
she came in fast second
And her dreams came into fruition.
Megan told me that all these comments really helped her feel better! (That and a lot of prayer!) I prayed for her in the morning and she went off to school.
Then I posted a comment too:
A girl who feared auditions a-failing
Began posting on Facebook her wailing
It pleased her no end
To see comments from friends
And through auditions went breezily sailing.
Daniel heard Megan read it and logged into Facebook and put a “Like” by it.
Then tonight Megan came home and informed us that seating auditions started in the back of the orchestra and she is in front, meaning she probably won’t have to audition for a week and a half.
I can see history repeating itself again in a week and a half…
