Join us for the 5th annual St. C. Division 3 Show Choir Invitational, hosted by the St. C. Singers and the St. Clairsville Vocal Music Boosters on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021 at Buckeye Local High School in Rayland, Ohio. Show Choir performances begin at 9am, continue until 5:00 pm , with finals concluding at 10pm.
This is our wildly popular annual small school show choir competition, which has welcomed to the stage a host of some of the best show choirs from Ohio, West Virginia and Indiana. All of our show choirs at the invitational - in both the preliminary and final rounds of competition - represent schools with enrollment of 750 or fewer students. So the playing field has been leveled! This presents the best opportunity for a small school Show Choir to earn the title of Grand Champion.
We take great pride in making the St. C. Division 3 Show Choir Invitational a well-organized competition that runs smoothly and on schedule with the best possible sound system and stage crew, offers one of the most comfortable auditoriums, has some of the most welcoming hosts for the competing show choirs (our own St. C.Singers!) and boasts some of the BEST FOOD you will find! We are a CASH ONLY event.
