All-State was honestly one of the best experiences of my entire life. I had wanted this for so long, and I finally was blessed to go and be a part of something so utterly incredible. Our clinician was phenomenal, and he honestly understood the music. He pulled so much out of it, and we sounded so incredible because of it. I learned so much from All-State and I have improved substantially over the past three days, both as a singer and a performer. It went by too quickly and I wish I was still there, but I am pretty happy to get some rest. However, All-State was so worth the exhaustion and singing for hours on end, and it was worth the tremendous amount of work that I put into it in order to get in. I am so happy that I was able to go and be a part of it, and I hope to have an experience like that again someday. I will never forget my time there, and in the end, it was all worth it.
