Show choir celebrates 30 years with country western performance

Tuscola High School’s show choir will put on a country western performance, titled “Thirty Years and Counting,” to celebrate its 30-year existence March 8-11.

Summit, which was created in 1982 by former director David Traynham, performs to sell-out crowds year after year.

Since it is a 30-year celebration, director Fritzi Wise is involving former Summit members as emcees and has asked that photos from past shows be shared in a display in the lobby. This year, the Chamber Choir will also accompany Summit.

Performances are in the Tuscola High School auditorium at 7 p.m. Thursday thru Saturday and at 2p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $8 and may be purchased from Summit and Chamber members or at the door

The event will include door prizes, concessions and a raffle.

Proceeds from the show assist the choir members with expenses for their annual trip to Epcot Center in December where they participate in the “Candlelight Processional.”

The choirs are also asking those attending to bring non-perishable foods that will be donated to “The Open Door.”
