Skyline High School, a Mesa public school, will host The Legends of Country Music Show to benefit the Skyline choral program on Saturday March 22. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.
The show brings the music of country’s best-known performers to the stage. The 90- minute, one-of-a- kind show features more than 40 beloved songs, incorporating humor and a military salute in this fast-paced performance.
The choir will receive 50 percent of ticket proceeds from the concert to purchase new uniforms, a portable sound system and out-of-state travel. Due to financial hardships, students have had to turn down invitations to perform in London, Vienna, Beijing, New York, Hawaii and Washington D.C.
“It has been eight years since we purchased new uniforms, and they are starting to show some serious wear. We regularly perform for the community, and the portable sound system would allow us to perform in venues that don’t have sound systems. Additionally, I can teach important microphone techniques to better prepare our students for careers in music and sound engineering,” says Jeffrey Medlock, choir director.
