I am a senior in HS. Last year I tried out for All State Chorus and received a terrible score of 92 mostly due to my musicality and sight singing (and the fact one judge had rated me a significant amount lower than the other two). This year I tried yet again and did not make it in - in fact I was the only senior out of 7 to not make it in, which as you can imagine was incredibly disheartening and embarrassing. My choir teacher says I'm one of the best sopranos he has ever had, but how can this be if I can not even make it into All State? Though auditioning for college (I plan to go to tech to get some classes out of the way first) is a way in the future, I am very disheartened. If I can not even make it into All State, how can I make it into a college as a voice major? I haven't received my scores for my audition this year so I do not know what areas I had trouble in.
So I suppose my question is, is it unrealistic to pursue a voice/choral major if I can not even make it into the All State Chorus?
