The One Song Show Choir Festival offers the chance to certain Alle-Kiski choirs to show their talent


On April 27, Highlands High School hosted musical theater students from four school districts in the Alle-Kiski Valley for the annual One Song Show Choir festival.

Choirs from the Highlands, Freeport Area, Springdale and Kiski Area participated.

Song performances included ‘Cruisin for a Bruisin’, ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now’, ‘The Greatest Show’, ‘Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In’ and ‘A Million Dreams’.

The show returned after a two-year hiatus during the pandemic.

Each show choir performed three songs, and all choirs came together on stage for the grand finale of “One Song,” composed by Marvin Hamlisch.

“Now more than ever, we need to celebrate and honor the good of every district,” said Highlands Music Director Michael Zeiler.

Zeiler commended the students for their musical gifts and unifying song to provide a free concert to the community.

“These students deserve so much praise for the kindness in their hearts and the music in their souls,” Zeiler said. “The directors of Alle-Kiski inspire this generation to ‘pass on their teachings’, and that’s why an evening like this is so important. »

The festival started in 1992.

Madlin Burnheimer, a sophomore at Freeport Area High School, said it was amazing to be back on stage after a two-year hiatus from performing in person.

“Everyone had great songwriting,” Burnheimer said. “It was fantastic to be able to sit with my friends (when we’re not on stage ourselves) to watch and dance in our seats with the great singers.”
