Grosse Pointe South's Show Choir to Compete
For the first time in seven years, Grosse Pointe South High Schools choral ensembles will participate in competitions with other schools.
Grosse Pointe South High School choral ensembles are preparing for competition for the first time in seven years. According to a press release issued by the South Choir Boosters, the ensembles will travel this month to competitions with other schools.
The ensembles, the Pointe Singers and the Tower Belles, will participate in two invitationals:
- Norwell Show Choir Invitational, which is March 8
- Teays Valley Classic, which is March 16
Both competitions are out of state. The first is in Indiana near Fort Wayne and the second is just south of Columbus, Ohio.
The ensembles have been rehearsing since the beginning of the year under new choir director Christopher Pratt, according to the press release.
The Tower Belles took second place in the Showstoppers National Show Choir Invitational the last time the students competed in 2007.
In addition to the direction of Pratt, the ensembles have been rehearsing with choreographers Andy Haines and Annette Layman and accompanist Richard Wolf.
