Show Choir Festival
On Tuesday and Wednesday, October 28 and 29, 26 middle and high school Show Choir groups gathered once again at Peru State College and performed in the College Theater where guest offered them tips on how to better their shows.
This year marks the 37th Annual Show Choir Festival Peru State College has hosted. Festival Coordinator Thomas Ediger noted that the twenty six groups this year's event attracted came from as close as Auburn and as far away as Grand Island.
Andy Beck--a very successful composer, arranger, and author--served as Guest Clinician and Adjudicator.
As part of the festivities, the Misty Blues gave their first performance of the year.
Enjoy some photographs from their two performances and some images from the dress rehearsal, which includes some posed shots such as the one that tops the page and the image that follows here.
I posted two of the Misty Blues' numbers on You Tube, the group's opening number "Cross the Line" and the energetic Mardi Gras favorite (check out the lyrics) "Iko Iko."
