We want to welcome all over new members who made it through the audition process. Every year we have auditions and we bring in new talent in many of our friends have to leave the group for various reasons so it is often bittersweet in the way that we have to say goodbye to friends but then we also get to make new friends. Will this year we have a especially diverse group of people. I’m only going to name a couple of them in this post but rest assured that out of the 22 new members all our great singers and great people.
First let me introduce you to Andre. Audrey comes to us from Algeria. His family is a mix of native Algerians and French. He speaks four languages. And he is studying engineering at a local university.
Next we have Hiroko. Hiroko comes to us from Japan. Next spring she hopes to be able to enter the University of California San Diego. In the meantime she is busy attending an ESL school to improve her English skills and also preparing to take the TOEIC test so that she can get a job when she goes back to Japan. Hiroko’s English is already great and she is super friendly and nice. The only problem is that occasionally during breaks she will bring us her TOEIC textbook and ask us questions that we don’t know the answers to. Seriously that TOEIC test is very difficult check it out yourself. Here’s a sample TOEIC test.
Last for today’s post we have Sam. Sam comes of us from Philadelphia. He used to own a bar with three of his childhood friends there but got married and decided to come out West to be closer to his wife’s family. Sam has an excellent singing voice and can mix up any drink that you can think of. During every rehearsal we try to stomp him on how to make various exotic drinks and it never fails that he knows exactly how to make it.
