Days of Future Past

It was a busy, exciting weekend as our high school show choir, Centerstage, performed for Sweets & Songs. It's one of their fundraisers where people buy tickets to watch the performances and are treated to an array of desserts. I must say, we have a very talented group of kids in our school system! I have not been involved with the show choir much in the past. But this year, Jordan was asked to play bass guitar in the band. Yes, that's right! We have a live band for our show choir. And let me tell you this. They rocked the house this weekend! Not only did Centerstage perform, several other choirs throughout the school system performed. Our music program has grown so much that they had to add a second show choir to the high school level this year. They are appropriately called Censations. We also have a middle school show choir, Vocal Point. It is just amazing to see this level of talent in this area. These choirs travel around the country competing with other show choirs. Last year someone asked our director if Albertville was a performing arts school! The level of talent is that good! The
theme for Centerstage this year is "Days of Future Past." The most memorable part is when they transition into a solo, "On the Deck of a Spanish Sailing Ship", with the others joining in for the chorus. Their first competition is next weekend in Piqua, Ohio. I wish them the best of luck, but who needs luck with all that talent?
