The end of winter break means that the show choir competition season is about to begin. Bettendorf’s varsity show choir, Surround Sound, and prep show choir, Audio Intensity, will be competing at two local competitions at Davenport North High School and the Adler Theatre in downtown Davenport along with two away competitions in Keokuk and Western Dubuque.
“I’m excited to see people from other show choirs that I’ve become friends with and perform on stages like the Adler,” Alysa Goethe said.
In addition, Surround Sound and Audio Intensity will be hosting the first Bettendorf show choir competition, Rhythm on the Riverbend, on Saturday, Feb. 4. Any student interested in volunteering at the event should contact Andrea Cooper in the vocal music department.
“I'm excited that we get to host because it represents our school. We get to choose how we set up and what it looks like. Hopefully it will be a fun time for everyone,” Tienna Trettin said.
The first competition is on Saturday, Jan. 28, at Davenport North High School. Audio Intensity will perform at 9 a.m. and Surround Sound will perform at 1:15 p.m. The price to get in is $10 and will give you a full day of show choir performances from around the area. Concessions are also available at all competitions.
