ADA — The faculty, staff and students of Ada High School, along with the parents, volunteers and officers of the Ada Music Boosters, are proud to host the 41st annual Ada Music Feast Show Choir Invitational Competition on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at Ada High School. This year’s program will feature talented young men and women from 9 visiting show choirs from Ohio, West Virginia and Michigan. Our own Ada Varsity Singers, under the direction of Mr. Scott Henning, Vocal Music Director and Mr. Jonathan Lischak, Director of Instrumental Music, will also provide an exhibition performance as the host school for this day-long event. Ada Music Feast always draws a “standing room only” crowd and is one of the best attended and well run show choir competitions in the Midwest. The event will be held in the Ada High School Auditorium and the first group will take the stage at 8:30 a.m. Performances continue throughout the day with the daytime awards ceremony at 2:30 p.m. in the Ada Gymnasium. An evening “Finals Competition” will begin at 5:00 p.m. The awards ceremony for the Finals Competition concludes the day at approximately 8:15 p.m. Spectators can expect to witness spectacular singing and dancing whether they attend a few performances or stay for the entire day. Sixteen year Master of Ceremonies John Shuffle will welcome the singer/dancers, instrumentalists and stage crew members to the contest. Each show choir performs a set of songs between 15-20 minutes in length and will traditionally have 2 to 3 costume changes. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are priced at $12 for adults, $8 “Golden Buckeye” Senior Citizens and $5 for students K-12 for daytime competition. Evening finals performances are a separate admission charge: $10 for adults, $7 for Senior Citizens and $5 for students.

Ada’s Music Feast is a much anticipated competition in the area and takes countless hours of planning and organizing. Over 2,000 people are expected to walk through the doors of Ada High School for this day-long event. It takes over 300 volunteers to make this event successful. If you are looking for a way to give back to the music program and the amazing kids involved, please consider volunteering for a short time to help make this event the best it can be.
