The Spirit Lake Music Boosters will present the 2nd Annual Shake the Lakes Show and Jazz Choir Competition on February 15 and 16.

Booster Club President Barb Fuelberth says the competition will include more schools this year.  "Last year was our first Shake the Lakes Show and Jazz Choir Competition.  This year we have actually doubled in size.  Last year we had about 27 groups that came.  This year we have over 40 coming to compete from 30 different schools.  Next Friday, from 5 o'clock to about 8:30, we have seven middle school choirs coming to compete, and then on Saturday, we have the high school groups come in.  We start at about 8 in the morning with 14 vocal jazz groups and 17 show choirs.  They'll compete until about 6:30, and then that night we take the best of the best, we have 6 finalists that compete from 7:30 to 11.  There's more than 700 students and their families coming to town and we're just super excited about it."

She adds that the public is invited to attend the performances.  "Friday night we charge $5 for admission, and on Saturday, $10 for admission.  Everything we earn at the competition goes to support all of our music programs, from pre-kindergarten up through 12th grade."

The Competition will be held at the Sami Bedell Center for the Performing Arts.
