    The DVSS junior high choir has had a great season of sharing its music with the valley and beyond, and at Kaleidoscope Theatre on May 13, they're teaming up with local band Drive By Shout Outs for a concert.

    This year was busy for the junior high choir. The Grade 7 and 8 students performed throughout the valley singing at the Remembrance Day Ceremonies at the School and Sunshine Lodge as well a Christmas performances at the Legion and Sunshine Lodge. They also went on the road to perform at Standard School and Hussar School.
    On Friday, May 13, they will be showcasing their hard work for local residents.
 Teacher Jillian Augey said the choir’s learning has gone beyond simply vocal performances. A number of the members have began to play instruments, and the choir has a whole has been learning about the production side, including lighting, sound and choreography.
    The performance is unique as the first set will be by the Drive By Shout Outs. The band has been building reputation in the valley for its performance value. During the second set, the Drive By Shout Outs will back the choir, and musicians from the choir will also pick up their instruments in the performance.
    The choir has a full set plan that includes choir standards to adaptations of modern hits showcasing their talent. They are even planning a black light show to Owl City’s 'Fireflies'.
    The funds raised from the show are to help the choir recoup funds for its music, costumes and tour expenses.
    For more information on the show, contact Augey at 403-823-5171.
