Details

What: Davis Community Idol competition

When: 7 p.m. Saturday

Where: Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St.

Tickets: $6 in advance, available at Watermelon Music, 207 E St., or $8 at the door

Members of the Davis High Advanced Treble Choir were pulling double duty this week, both preparing for their own performance at Saturday’s Davis Community Idol competition and preparing for the event itself, which choir members have organized for three years now.

The event features about a dozen community members — all over age 18 — in an “American Idol”-like competition beginning at 7 p.m. at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St. Tickets are on sale for $6 at Watermelon Music, 207 E St., or $8 at the door.

As in previous years, contestants will perform solos before a panel of judges who will provide feedback to each and choose a winner at the end of the evening. Audience members will get to vote for their own “People’s Choice” award.

Among those performing this year will be some former choir members and even some Davis High faculty, including auto shop teacher Robbie Thayer, a first-time competitor who will sing the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses.”

This year’s judges are music teachers Nate Reinking of Escondido High School, David Vanderbout of River City High School and Meagan Pitcairn of Lee Middle School in Woodland.

Both the judges and audience members can expect to hear some talented performers, students said.

“They can expect to see a lot of talent from our community that you normally would never see otherwise,” said senior Hanna Herrera, who noted that she was surprised in previous years to see so many Davisites “who can really sing.”

As for the choir members themselves, the event marks their first big performance of the school year. They will perform two pieces, though not as competitors.

“It’s really exciting,” said junior Liz Ritter. “We’ve been working on a couple songs and we’ve really improved in the last couple of weeks.”

In addition to proceeds from ticket sales, choir members also will have baked goods for sale, with all of the money raised going toward the choir’s annual spring trip.

Choir director Karen Gardias will be joined by DHS teacher James Curley to emcee the event. For more information, visit http://www.dhstreblechoir.org.
