The Show Choir is an auditioned ensemble of mixed voices for up to 16 singers. Audiences have been thrilled by the performances of this spring semester ensemble which was originally selected from the Chamber Choir but is now being offered independently.
Musical literature selected from Broadway and Hollywood shows will be performed. In addition to full chorus work, soloists and small ensembles are selected. Under the musical direction of Gene Ditch the scenes are then staged and choreographed by Lynne Snyder. Final performances often include sets and costumes from some well-known and some not so well known musical theater shows.
Along with performances on campus, the group also performs for social and community events in the St. Charles County area. Selected members of the Show Choir may also perform with the Community College Collegiate Choir for the Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) state events and every four years with the All-State Collegiate Choir for the Missouri Music Educator's Convention.
The Show Choir rehearses five days per week during the spring semester from 11-11:50 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 11:30 a.m.-12:50 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. Interested persons should register for the course and attend class the first week of each semester to learn the audition material which will include simple choreography. Auditions will take place at the end of the first week with a well-voiced and balanced ensemble being the goal.
