WCPS Students To Sing In 2019 Choral Showcase

Wayne County Public Schools students will soon spread holiday cheer through festive songs and melodies at the annual district-wide Choral Showcase, with performances spanning over three nights this at Goldsboro High School.

This is the nineteenth year for the annual holiday showcase. The showcase first began in 2001 with 12 schools participating. This year the showcase will have 29 schools.

Director Specialist, Kim Copeland, who has helped oversee the coordination of the Choral Showcase for a number of years believes the event is one that the schools, the community, and the organizers behind the scenes look forward to each year.

“Our students and music directors have been working for several weeks preparing for their special night in order to lead audience members into a time of seasonal cheer through their songs,” states Ms. Copeland who is retiring at the end of December. “After 38 years serving in public education, I remain excited to be a part of this annual event. It has been a highlight of my career to work with the district’s lead music teachers to help showcase the musical talents of our students through events like the Choral Showcase.”
