"I've been in show choir for two years. Last semester I did not have a study hall so it was definitely a little more difficult to balance show choir and school but finding free time during classes and the little bit I had after show choir practice definitely helped. Late nights and coffee are definitely my friend. We don't have show choir everyday after school (usually I go to work on free days) so I find little free time there to do school work. Show choir is basically like a part-time job so not entirely different from any other high school student. This semester I have a study hall since it's competition season and weekends are mostly dedicated to performing. Show choir is definitely a family. I'm convinced I'm with them more than I am my actual family! I love them all and we are all like siblings, but like siblings we fight. With all of the different and unique personalities it doesn't always mix well together, however we all make up eventually. I've met most of my closest friends in show choir and it's nice to be around the people I love every weekend. I've had so many great experiences in just the past year I have been in it and I've grown so much not only as a performer but a person too. The people in show choir have helped me overcome so much and have always been there for me. So yea we are definitely a family, a giant, supportive family of 100 people and I'm so grateful for all of them." -Junior Taylor Fisher

Show Choirs Feeling ‘Grimm,’ Flying High

“I have been in CHS show choir for all four years of my high school career in the group Minstrel Magic, but out of high school I’ve been in it for like 6ish-7ish years now! Although it is hard sometimes, we normally have Wednesday and Fridays off so that isn’t hard for school work, but other than that I always take a study hall so I can get work done there as well as practices only last 2-3 hours so I can easily do it after practice or before practice! It easily can get done if you put your mind to it and buckle down rather than getting easily distracted. I think in our own special way we are a family (I mean any group of people who are always together basically are whether they like it or not haha) but we laugh like a family, we fight like one too. We succeed as one, we fail as one too. When someone wins an award whether it be best performer or outstanding soloist we cheer and root for them like no other because there is normally nothing but genuine happiness for them, no matter if they are your favorite person or not. We do hit roadblocks sometimes throughout the year that really test each others patience but we learn and grow together from those things because I mean, there are little to none families around the world that don’t annoy or make the others in them mad at least once, and if there is then props to them! Whether they are my best friend in the group or the person that just doesn’t mesh with me well, I know that they have forever impacted my life and I love all of them so much, no matter what they think or think of me!” -Senior Jason Wendt
