Do you enjoy singing? Do you enjoy exceeding your limits and showing school spirit? The Broken Arrow Vocal Music program is holding their show choir auditions for the upcoming 2019-20 school year.

Under the direction of Broken Arrow Alumni, Justin Rosser, Broken Arrow Show Choir learn choreography and multiple songs to compete against the hardest teams in the nation. Tiger Rhythm consists of men and women, while Tiger Mystique is an all women’s ensemble.

Since he was in sixth grade, sophomore Aiden Dodd has participated in show choir. He joined Tiger Rhythm his first year of high school.

“Being a part of show choir has really changed me for the better,” Dodd said. “I love every single person I’ve met. My love for music has grown more since being a part of the team. The Broken Arrow Public Schools Vocal music staff is amazing at what they do and they care for each individual in all the choirs.”

Show Choir has won several awards this last season. Tiger Mystique took Grand Champs at the Heart of America competition in Kansas City, Missouri on March 9. Tiger Rhythm took fourth runner up in their division.

Junior Haven Reynolds has been a part of Tiger Rhythm show choir for two years. After discovering show choir in sixth grade, Reynolds has been passionate about her love of dance and singing.

“The best part about show choir is traveling and competing,” Reynolds said. “Getting to go to new places and meet other show choir members from all over the country and compete against them has been the coolest thing.”

From Nebraska to Iowa to Missouri, both groups participate in multiple competitions held around the nation. Next season, they will be traveling to Disneyland in California.

Senior Ashley Molina has participated in both Tiger Mystique and Tiger Rhythm since she was a sophomore.

“Show choir is a fun alternative to participating in a sport. You not only get to travel the nation, but also get to meet new people,” Molina said.

Both teams are open to all sophomores and juniors that are willing to audition. In order to audition, students have to prepare thirty-two bars of a pop or musical theater piece of their choice. Students must be present each day after school until 7 p.m. in order to audition. Auditions will be held April 15-19.
