Organized by Dr. Tom Ediger and featuring Guest Clinician Paul Gulsvig, The 38th Annual Show Choir festival took place in the Peru State College Theater on October 27-28.

Paul's new career includes; retreat presenter, show doctor, motivational speaker, leadership workshops for high school, in-service workshops for school districts and show choir adjudication. He has been able to assist a wide variety of schools, including elementary, middle & high schools, college and graduate programs. His expertise has taken him to Alabama, Florida, Kansas, Ohio, Illinois, Connecticut, West Virginia, Iowa, Nebraska, Arizona, South Dakota, Indiana and Michigan, as well as his home state of Wisconsin.
In years past, I concentrated on The Misty Blues' performances at this festival . This time around, however, as the photographs indicate, my cameras recorded a few of the visiting groups.
The Misty Blues performed once on each day of the festivities, and you will find their images mixed in with all the other color.
In addition to the photographs, you can enjoy the Misty Blue's performance of "Eli's Coming," the energetic and entertaining final number of the group's show.
The Misty Blues, next time with their familiar glittering blue, will perform again on November 15.
