SPA Show Choirs: the Fluffernutters & Main Melody
SPA’s own show choirs, The Fluffernutters & Main Melody, return for another smash season! This high energy, fast paced choir will knock your socks off with fun! Show Choir is all the rage these days, not to mention the best way to get your glee on. Students will learn proper breathing, posture, and vocal technique, as well as choreography designed for show choirs. The repertoire includes contemporary, broadway and popular pop songs of yesterday and today.
Members receive weekly vocal rehearsal and dance/choreography class to produce their showcase within each performance season. This ensemble participates in numerous public performances. SPA show choirs have graced the stages of Disney World, Navy Pier, The Museum of Science & Industry, Naperville’s Hometown Holidays, and more!

SHOW CHOIR...AFTER HOURS!
Our ‘After-Hours’ Show Choir – an additional opportunity for current show choir members. Rehearsals will take place Tuesday evenings following our regularly scheduled Tuesday rehearsals. This will be an auditioned and invited group comprised of current Show Choir members grades 6-9, that are looking for that little something extra… a solo or duet, specialty number with faster-paced choreography and character staging. This will enhance our already established and show-stopping Show Choirs, allowing us to lengthen our ‘show times’ a bit for area performances.
Auditions will be held early October for current show choir members in Main Melody only.
Rehearsal: Tuesdays 6:40pm - 7:30pm
Grades 3 – 6
Grades 6* – 9
*6th graders auditioning for MM should be at an int/adv. level of dance technique
