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.

 


“Dead Men Tell No Tales”
The 2019-2020 show is called “Dead Men Tell No Tales.”

This year’s show entitled “Dead Men Tell Know Tales” takes you on a pirate adventure. The tale of the infamous Davy Jones who escapes death, sails the ocean blue, and fights to rein supreme on the high seas. Enjoy the show you “scallywags”, or you might have to “Walk the Plank” Arrrrrgh.

Our program is completely funded by the hard work of our parents and boosters organization. They work throughout the year to raise funds so that our kids get the opportunity to do this awesome extracurricular activity. It is a big undertaking to raise the funds for costumes, alterations, sets, lights, sound, equipment, music licensing & arrangement, choreography, charter bus transportation to the shows, entry fees, etc. Every year they need to raise more than $50,000 to keep the St.C. Singers Show Choir competing. Your generosity of any donation amount is greatly appreciated!
