If you are wondering why some have sunscreen, silly hair and necklaces, Wednesday was also “sticky tourist” spirit day at Central!
RAPID CITY, SD – A choir from a local high school is gearing up for the opportunity of a lifetime.
Eight Central High students will open for rock music legend Foreigner when they perform at the Monument this Friday night.
The ensemble, made up mainly of juniors and seniors, is preparing to perform three a cappella hits.
CHS chief choir director Emily McGruther says the students only found out about two weeks ago that the show was taking place.
McGruther said: “They’ve worked really hard and are just amazing… it’s great to see.”
In addition to opening for the group, Foreigner will donate $ 500 to the school’s choral program, which will help fund their trip to Europe this summer.
“We’re really excited… yes we’re all really excited and we are grateful to have this opportunity to go open for them,” said Morgen MacDonald and Liz Parsons, both in grade 11.
Jacob Sullivan (12th grade) and Isabelle Stein (11th grade) said: “I used to listen to strangers as a kid … my mom loves their songs – she loves us playing for them … it’s like woooh … yeah, my mom too … when I told her she was like ‘Oh my god that’s so cool.’ “
If you’re wondering why some have sunscreen, silly hair and necklaces, Wednesday was also Nerdy Tourist Spirit Day at Central!
The concert begins at 8 p.m. this Friday, September 10, in the Barnett Arena at the Monument.
