I am very proud to announce that Charisma has qualified for the Show Choir National Finals for the first time ever! We were invited to participate on April 21st & 22nd at the Arie Crown Theatre in Chicago Illinois.
Charisma qualified via their score at the Carroll HS Invitational in January. At first I wasn’t sure we would be able to go with the cost of transportation, hotel and entry fee per student, however FWCS has generously agreed to pay for our transportation since we qualified for a National event. We also have been able to secure a couple other donations that will dramatically reduce the cost of the contest. At this time, I can’t give you an exact amount but it will be in the $50.00 per student range. This will include transportation, hotel and contest. The cost originally was well over $200.00 per student.
As part of the FAME rules, those that will be required to pay the participant cost will include all students and adults that are associated with the outcome of the performance on stage. That includes all student performers, student and adult stage crew, and band members. Also, with FWCS paying for our transportation I will only be taking 6 chaperones on the bus with us due to minimum seating. Chaperones will still have to purchase a ticket or be a part of our stage crew to gain admittance.
I will keep everyone posted as we get prices firmed up and a schedule.
Thank you again for all the support this year and for everything you do for the kids!!
