Misty Blues Show Choir

(Peru, Neb.) Peru State College today announced the members of the 2013-14 Misty Blues Show Choir following competitive auditions.

The Show Choir will be accompanied this year by a band of trumpets, trombones, saxophones, guitar, bass guitar, percussion and two keyboards.

The group’s first performance will be during the all High School Show Choir Festival on campus Tuesday, Oct. 22 and Wednesday, Oct. 23 in the College Theatre, located at the south end of Hoyt Science Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Show Choir Director and Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Jacob Bartlett said, “This year’s group consists of a strong nucleus of new members along with seasoned, well-trained upperclassmen. The vocal quality has improved dramatically, and the dancing will also be reflective of the quality of performer we have in the group. We increased the number of members from 18 to 28 this year, which allows our choreographer to be more diverse in his formations, creating a more unique show. Given the increased enrollment, I’m extremely excited for what the year ahead holds.”

The group is accompanied by David Norris.
