Middle school show choir
The Solon Middle School show choir program recently finished another successful competition season. Last weekend, Solon traveled to Cedar Rapids Xavier and competed against 16 middle schools from around Eastern Iowa. Synergy took first place in class 3A, and advanced to the evening finals for the second year in a row, placing fifth overall. Affinity took second place in the prep division, and won the “People’s Choice Award,” the first time a group Solon has won that award. Synergy also took second place at Western Dubuque, and Affinity was consistently one of the top prep groups at each competition. Fifth graders Dylan Davenport and Matt Shafer won outstanding soloist awards at the Indianola Show Choir Invitational. Shafer also won an outstanding performer award at Western Dubuque, as did seventh grader Kylie Holubar. Both show choirs will be presenting their show for the community at the All-School Concert on March 29 in the high school gymnasium.
