41st Annual Peru State College Show Choir Festival

On Tuesday and Wednesday, October 23 and 24, 28 Show Choir groups from schools throughout the area came to Peru State College to take part in the 41st Annual Show Choir Festival.  The groups performed to enthusiastic crowds in the Peru State Theater.

As he has for the past 25 years and more, Thomas Ediger served as the Festival Coordinator.  And this year, the unflappable and popular Annette Layman was the event's Guest Clinician and Adjudicator. 

I published a number of photographs from the event that also included Peru State's own Misty Blues Show Choir under the directorship of Jake Bartlett.  As you will note, this year's Misty blues sport a new look. 

In addition to the photographs, I also recorded three of the groups' performances.

To celebrate their first live performances of the year, I posted in two parts the Misty Blues' entire show.  You can watch Part One and Part Two on You Tube.

Time and space precluded my including many of the excellent groups that visited Peru State College for this wonderful annual event that gives the young performers to show off their talents and to visit our beautiful campus.

I did, however, record the groups from Bellevue West High School, the West Connection, and Auburn High School's Rhythm in Red.  You can enjoy these groups on You Tube by clicking the links or by  watching on the blog.
