Participating students pay $25 to perform and are asked that the performance be “G” rated.
“We reserve the right to pull out the hook,” Robertson said.
Senior Collin Brumfield, 17, said he is looking forward to the competition.
“This is my 1st year performing solo,” he said.
Brumfield will be performing “Love is an Open Door,” by Kristen Bell.
“I do it to help my choir,” he said.
He added that the money he makes by selling tickets and advertisements for the program go into his choir account.
Brumfield said he doesn’t particularly like competition but feels he can do better in this than others.
Seniors Conner Ferguson, 17, and Jacob Lloyd, 18, and Junior Bailin Caldwell, 16, will be performing as the band “The Adjective Nouns.”
They will be performing the song, “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes.
“We know it. We like it,” Lloyd said.
Lloyd added that they enjoy playing for other people.
“I always liked music. It’s fun, it’s what I do in my free time,” Caldwell said.
Ferguson sings lead and plays the ukulele in the band and Lloyd sings back up vocals and plays a shaker. Caldwell plays the conga.
Robertson said they enjoy playing.
“They’re great kids. We have some of the best kids in our choir. We love them all,” she said.
Robertson said there are 30 acts and she hopes to raise $5,000 from the event.
Winners in each category get $100.
Robertson said she loves the art program in the town.
“I believe with all my heart choir keeps kids in school,” she said.
