GENEVA — March marks the beginning of a new season — spring! With the change of seasons comes a change of activities, and Geneva High School students are quick to get involved.
The weather isn’t the only thing that’s warming up at GHS. This month is an especially exciting time for members of the vocal music department, including Women’s Chorale, and Geneva’s Image (G.I.’s). The first upcoming event for choir members is the fifth annual Broadway Dinner Show. The show features performances from each vocal group and several solo acts. All soloists had to audition for their performances, so audience members can be sure they are in for an exciting and entertaining evening.
The dinner will be catered, as always, by Mary’s Diner, and will feature a full buffet. This event will take place on March 21 in the common area of the high school. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the dinner begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 for students and $25 for adults. Please call vocal director Michelle Mather at (440) 466-4831 extension 4614 to check on ticket availability.
Another exciting happening within the vocal music department is the GHS choir’s upcoming trip to Disney World. More than 60 members of the choirs will be going on the trip, which will consist of a musical competition and plenty of sight-seeing.
“We will be staying in the park, so we will have the opportunity to go to the parks a lot. But honestly, I’m most excited for the competition. I want to win,” said G.I.’s member Zack Rohrbaugh.
Schools will travel from across the country to compete. In the show choir category alone, nine other schools will vie for awards. The G.I.’s will be performing three songs, including “Anyway” made popular by Martina McBride. Students have worked very hard this year to raise funds for the trip, which will cost about $1,000 per student. Every Wednesday after school they hold a pizza sale, and they have also sold many Music Booster raffle tickets. Some students have even saved money on their own to participate.
