Ankeny show choirs begin their season with a bang in Bloomington

On Saturday, Jan. 27, the Ankeny Show Choirs attended the Bloomington Gold Show Choir competition in Bloomington, Minnesota. Ankeny’s treble prep group, Intensity, received first runner-up in the treble prep division for their show “Turn it Up!” Perpetual Motion, Ankeny’s mixed prep group, received first place in the mixed prep division, as well as fifth place overall. Their show “Clue” was also given the People’s Choice award for being an audience favorite. Ankeny’s varsity show choir, Visual Adrenaline, received first place in daytime awards, best choreography, and were the grand champions of the competition with their show “I am America.”

Other opportunities to see the show choirs perform include Feb. 10 at North Polk High School, Feb. 24 at Southeast Polk High School, and March 22-24 at Ankeny High School.
