The McClain Performing Arts Boosters will present the annual McClain Show Choir “Spectacular” on Saturday, April 26.

Some featured songs and dances in this year’s show include “Disturbia,” “All of You,” “Say Something,” “Survivor,” “Fame,” “Broadway Boogie,” and “I Believe I Can Fly.”

Proceeds from the show will help the group to continue to represent McClain beyond the community of Greenfield. The show choir members have traveled to New York City where they marched and performed in the Macy’s Day Parade, and at the United Nations. In addition, the group has performed at the Mall of America, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Disney World. The show choir also performs for community organizations and events.


Next spring, the choral group will return to Disney World where members will perform their own show in one of the parks.
