Wisconsin Singers To Hold Event Nov. 17 At South
Story by: Jesus Rivera
“We develop students into exemplary adults by encouraging them to embrace their talents and stretch their abilities in the service of others,” states the core philosophy of the UW Madison’s Wisconsin singers.
The Wisconsin Singers was founded by Arlie Mucks Jr. in 1967. Over the past 45 years, the Singers have become a professional entertainment company, focusing on Broadway type productions, hands-on educational opportunities, and community service.
The core purpose of the Singers is to educate, entertain, and inspire students and adults alike.
The students at UW-Madison who are part of the program, and a few professionals take care of all the choreograph, the dancers, and instrumentalists to put on a 90 minute show of non-stop musical fun.
The Wisconsin Singers will be joining North High School’s Northern Lights, Sheboygan Falls Jazz Show Choir, and our very own South High Singers for the show.
The singing group will be putting on a show, here, at South High School, on Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
“I am beyond excited to be back in Sheboygan for the kickoff to our performance season,” stated the Wisconsin Singers dance captain Robin Whitty-Novotny.
“This will be my fourth year putting on a show for an amazing Sheboygan audience - each one has been even better than the one before. We cannot wait to hit the stage with South High,” Novotny added.
Not only are the UW Madison students and group faculty excited but so are some of the students here at South who will be joining the group. “It is going to be the longest and best concert of your modest life”, said Allison Macknick.
Students or community citizens interested in attending the show can buy tickets on the Wisconsin Singers web page, in the South High Activities Office, or they can call (920)458-6377 for ticket information.
