With schools coming from Alabama, Virginia and Kentucky, to name a few, the Wapakoneta High School Performing Arts Center is the place to be on Saturday, March 22.
Wapakoneta High School’s show choir, Singsation, is hosting the 13th annual Music and More competition, which is sure to offer a variety of shows from a wide range of schools.
According to the Wapakoneta Choral Music Society President, Anita Foor, 16 groups are competing this year, including two middle school teams.
Foor is also the chairman for the Music and More program this year and explained how the schedule will work for next Saturday’s performances.
“They arrive starting anywhere around 6 a.m., and the first show begins at 8 a.m. an then they compete all day,” Foor said. “Our last performance is at 5 p.m. and then we have an awards program at 6 p.m. in the gym.”
After the awards program, the top six groups to make the finals will perform again starting at 8 p.m.
“Before their performance at 8 p.m., the Wapak Singsation will be doing an exhibition show at 7:30 p.m.,” she said.
Since Wapakoneta is hosting the event they will not be competing or judged. Foor said one of the essential things the Singsation members will be doing is playing host to all of the different students from around the country.
“We have rooms that we assign at the high school for each group, there’s a boys room and a girls room, and then our Singsation students are their host,” Foor said. “Each room gets a host of one of our students and they’re kind of like their guides and buddies for the day.”
Being hosts and getting to meet the kids in all of the other show choirs is one of the fun things about not having to compete.
