Show Choir is a Glee Club-esque group that meets once a week to work on musical numbers and basic choreography that will be performed in a public forum. Children will be able to experience what it is like to show off their hard work and skills to an audience, performing multiple shows a year that are seasonal in nature. Show Choir members will not only perform group numbers but trios, duets, and solos as well.
