Bear River vocal ensembles team up for special show

Bear River High School’s award-winning vocal ensembles, Jazz Unlimited and Starlite Express, will host a show choir and vocal jazz festival entitled “Fantasy of Stars.” This special performance will be in the Bruin Community Performing Arts Theater at Bear River High School, 11130 Magnolia Road, Grass Valley. This show marks the 22nd year of this production!

Bear River and Redding’s Enterprise High School’s vocal jazz and show choirs have competed with each other and consistently place at the top. These two programs are considered power houses in California. Both Bear River’s Jazz Unlimited and Enterprise’s TBA were recently named first-place winners at the Folsom Jazz Festival in their respective divisions in vocal jazz. They will also be joined by the newest vocal jazz group at Bear River, comprised of all females.

Bear River and Enterprise’s show choirs also compete throughout the state each year and always received high marks and accolades. Bear River’s “Starlite Express” took first place at the Music in the Parks festival last spring in Disneyland. “Starship,” from Enterprise High, was recently named as one of America’s favorite show choirs in Parade Magazine!

Now is an opportunity to see these two schools together, along with the show choir “Starmakers” from Magnolia Middle School, in an exceptional concert that will take place at 7 p.m. Friday and 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday. All seats are reserved. $8 adults/$6 students and seniors. Tickets are on sale now at the BRHS student store.
