Attache' show choir 40th Anniversary Fall Revue set for Dec. 11-14
CLINTON — Nationally acclaimed for four decades, Clinton High’s Attaché show choir will shine on stage before audiences at its 2019 Fall Revue.
Talented soloists, dancers and other performers are busy rehearsing for shows booked at the Clinton High Auditorium Dec. 11-14. Each evening, these amazing teens will supply fabulous entertainment in their hometown. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m.
Accolades for the Clinton High Attaché show choir are off the charts. Attaché was recognized as the Host Show Choir for Show Choir Nationals at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee the past 18 years. During the 28-year tenure of directors David and Mary Fehr, the group was selected Grand Champions in 80 of 89 competitions.
Attaché honors nationwide are well-deserved. During the Fehr’s 28 years, Clinton High’s Attaché has never lost a competition in the South. And going back 40 years (the first 12 under director Winona Costello), the group stayed undefeated against every school the Arrows faced in Mississippi.
The current national winning streak of 18 straight competitions with the Clinton group capturing both vocals and visuals remains an all-time record.
For people who have never witnessed one of their stunning performances or patrons going almost every year, there are good reasons to buy tickets.
“The fall revue is such a fun show,” says Amy Ouellette, co-president of the Attaché Boosters. “It provides a chance to see the students perform a few Attaché hits from years past, a preview of the upcoming competition set, and a few Christmas songs to help get you in the holiday spirit.”
This season’s Fall Revue should appeal to audiences of all ages. It will feature ’50s classics like “Dream Lover” to Broadway’s “Seasons of Love” from Rent to all-time Attaché favorites “Free Bird” and “I Drove All Night.”
In 2019, the show choir swept two Southern competitions in Jasper, Alabama and Petal, Mississippi and also at The Event in Chatham, Illinois. From 2010 to 2019, Attaché participated in 31 competitions and won 30 grand championships. That’s 30 Best Vocals and 30 Best Visuals.
With numerous awards stacking up for 40 years, the best advice to 2019 Fall Revue audiences is to buy tickets soon.
“This is an extremely popular annual event, so we encourage fans to purchase tickets in advance,” says Sandi Beason, public information director for Clinton public schools. “Attaché is quantifiably the best show choir in the nation.”
Led by directors David and Mary Fehr, Attaché consists of 47 singer/dancers, 15 pit members, and 17 crew members. Robert Allen and Matt Hines serve as pit directors and Deborah Morgan is the crew director. Choreographers include: April James, Stephen Todd, Dexter Bishop, and Harley McAlexander.
Tickets for the Fall Revue range between $9 and $10. Tickets can be purchased at the Clinton High auditorium from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 23 or Monday through Friday Dec. 2-6 and Dec. 9-13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
