Sad Kid: show choir update :(

About 2 weeks ago I posted that my 14yr old was trying out for show choir for high school next year, well the poor girl did not make it. She is really bummed out. She has been talking about it for the past 2 years (you have to be in 9th grade to join). The teacher told her it was a maturity issue, which I dont get cuz she has always been the most muture kid I know. She is a well behaved, honor roll student in several advanced classes. Her singing is pretty good. And not to sound mean but some of the singers in show choir the last 2 years have made me wince at the concerts. Anyhow, just between us moms ...it did just save me $400.

Poor thing. Is there any community choir she can join or even a community theatre that does musicals?

Bummer for her. :( I wonder if she didn't get it because she is a freshman, and upperclassmen might have been waiting... Even though she is really talented? I would think she'll have an even better chance next year... Especially if she is in regular choir/chorus/whatever the school offers?

Maybe but it is a pretty small school & a pretty small group. They actually called her out of class to let her know she didnt make it & she had to reagrange her schedule for next year cuz she had written down show choir as one classes. She exchanged it for high school choir.
