The EVENT - February 28th and March 1st, 2025
Join us for one of the premier show choir invitationals in the country, The EVENT! This year's competition will be held on February 28th and March 1st, 2025 at Glenwood High School in Chatham, IL (just outside of our state capital of Springfield).

Friday evening will feature our middle school and junior high competition. Saturday will feature our high school competition along with our evening finals round. Both days will feature a Solo Competition for your singers to show off their individual talents.

NEW THIS YEAR: We are excited to debut our recently updated full LED lighting in our 700 seat auditorium, adding to an already wonderful performance space for your ensembles with ample wing space and transits all on one level! In addition, we are introducing an expanded finals round, welcoming the top 3 single clef ensembles and the top 5 mixed ensembles to perform again in the evening. Add this to a competition that stays on time and you'll see why we call it The EVENT!
