Also on Parade

Last year's Pottsgrove High School Show Choir

Blogger's Note: After The Mercury ran the Sept. 5 story about local marching bands participating in the Miss America parade on Sept. 14, we heard from Cynthia Foust, choral teacher at Pottsgrove High School, who let us know it won't just be bands making their way down the Atlantic City boardwalk.

Here's what she sent us:
The Pottsgrove High School Show Choir will also be performing at the 2013 Miss America Pageant Parade on Saturday, Sept. 14. 

Our singers will be members of a choir comprised of 500 vocalists who will be performing a beautiful arrangement of "God Bless America." 

Pottsgrove started rehearsing Aug. 19th in order to be prepared for the event.

All singers will be wearing an array of bright colored shirts as per the performance grid which is designed by the "Under the Sun" Production Company. 

The entire choir will rehearse for 1 hour prior to the parade at the Convention Center in Atlantic City. 

During the parade route, the choir will be singing the tune as they walk the route. A sound vehicle will provide the accompaniment. 

When they arrive in the telecast area, the choir will stand to perform the number and then continue on with the parade! We are one of the last units in the parade

As The Mercury reported, previously, also performing will be the Pottstown, Pottsgrove and Owen J. Roberts high school bands, as well as the Boyertown Alumni Band.

The parade will be televised live on channel PHL-17 from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 14 and again on channel 6, ABC from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 15.
