South High School celebrates 50 years of show choir

Omaha South High School’s Ambassadors Show Choir is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

A 50 year reunion concert is scheduled for Saturday evening at South High School. The Ambassadors Show Choir began in 1962 as the Choralaires. Among the 100 participants in this weekend’s reunion show are members of that choir.

Clay Blackman, Director of Choral Activities at South High School, says the Ambassadors Show Choir has 18 members this school year. He says even if participants choose not to pursue a career in performing arts, he hopes Ambassadors Show Choir instills in them a lifelong love of music.

 Blackman says students who participate in show choir put a significant amount of time in to it, rehearsing after school and on weekends.

The Ambassadors Show Choir 50th Anniversary Reunion show is scheduled for 7pm Saturday at the South High School theater. More information is available at www.ops.org.
