Show Choir

The Dunbar Show Choir is a performing group made up of auditioned students who enjoy singing.  It is open to all three grade levels and is an extra-curricular activity.  The Show Choir rehearses on Monday afternoons from 3:10 until 4:25.  There is an activity bus for students who need one or students may be picked up after rehearsal. 

The Show Choir performs many times over the school year.  Performances include a Winter Holiday Concert with the Bands and Orchestras; Guest appearances with the FACination Adult Pop Chorus at the Academy of Fine Arts in Downtown Lynchburg; a combined choral concert at Glass with the other middle schools and high schools; a competition trip to destinations like Pigeon Forge, TN, Washington, DC or Hershey, PA; and our end of the school year concert also with the Band and Orchestra.

Show Choir is a fun, learning experience for both male and female students.  Mr. Albert Carter directs the choir and is assisted by his wife Lori.  The students work hard and achieve excellence.  Last year the choir won first place in its division for competition in DC and Maryland.  Then as a reward for their commitment and talent, the students spent the day at Six Flags America.  The students also went to the Historic Ford Theatre in DC and saw a professional production of the musical “1776” while on the competition trip.  The choir has consistently scored superior and excellent ratings and placed high in competitions for over 15 years.

Mr. Carter encourages all students who love music to audition and join Dunbar’s Show Choir.
