Yesterday, the SHS Choirs participated in the annual Southern Illinois Youth in Harmony Barbershop Festival, and it was a blast! The men were coached by the 2012 International Quartet Champions Ringmasters, and the ladies worked with Mrs. Juliane Sharp of Charleston High School. They had a day filled with rehearsals, special performances, DVD presentations, and Q&A with the guest quartet, all capped-off by a great performance in the evening. The students worked very hard, and the clinicians had nothing but great things to say about the SHS students. We now move into full concert-mode, getting ready for our first home performance on November 4th. A lot of singing for these kids, but they are sounding great!
