Shawano Community High School musicians and vocalists are tuning up for the school’s 23rd annual Dinner Dance performances slated for Nov. 14 and 15.
Forty-four jazz band students and 18 vocalists from the school’s show choir, the Showstoppers, will perform an array of styles.
Christopher Kent, SCHS band director and head of the music department, will be directing the instrumentalists consisting of the saxophone, trumpet, trombone, drums, bass, guitar and keyboard. Choir teacher Jonathan Kent, Christopher’s brother, will direct the the singers.
Senior alto sax player Threse Van Dyck said she is looking forward to her solo, “When I Fall in Love” by Victor Young and Edward Heyman.
“It is very pretty, and I am nervous about it, because I have to stand up in front of everybody and play,” Van Dyck said.
Other band soloists will be senior drummer Mitch Micik and junior trumpeter Teddy Myers.
