Auditioning for anything takes a lot of planning and preparation. It also has the potential to spark a variety of feelings, such as: excitement, anxiety, joy, satisfaction, as well as disappointment.
While a record number of students in Kindergarten through grade 4 came out to audition for the Lower School Talent Show, not all acts were able to make it into the final performance. However, every one of them learned valuable life-lessons and skills throughout the process.
Through two performances, one in front of parents and the other in front of their peers, Lower School students showcased a variety of skill, breadth of interest and a lot of talent.
Thanks to Team Trenney, sisters Emily and Katie, for producing another spectacular Mount Vernon event!
