"Decades" SHOWCASE CONCERT - January 23rd

The WHS Choir Showcase concert will take place this Monday, January 23rd at 7:30 pm in the HS PAC. The Showcase concert features student-led small ensembles in which students have selected their songs, purchased or made their own arrangements, and collaborated with student and professional musicians to create a fun night of music making. This year's event will feature music performed by Michael Jackson, Sara Bareilles, Queen, ABBA, Olivia Rodrigo, The Beatles and many more! The concert is free, open to the public, and will be about an hour long. Come join us!

This concert is typically a fundraiser for the vocal music program. In the past we sold tickets for $5 each BUT WE ARE NOT SELLING TICKETS FOR THIS YEAR'S SHOW!

Instead, we have created this classmunity campaign for the event. If you like what you hear that night, consider giving a donation to cover the professional instrumentalists, sheet music and PIZZA! Any additional funds will be used to support choir travel or field trips in the future.


SAVE THE DATE! Call time for all singers will be at 4:00 pm on January 23rd. We will do sound and lighting checks and then have pizza before the concert which begins at 7:30. Pizza will be provided; Bring your own water bottle or beverage!

Still time to join A Cappella - Next Rehearsal is January 25 at 7:15 am!
