The 10th Avenue Singers of Pasco High School have a long history of memorable performances.
This year will be no different when they present The Show Goes On, starting at 7 p.m. April 26 in the Gregson Auditorium at the high school.
Rob Dennis, the choral group's director, plans to take the audience on a musical journey that avoids the harsh realities of life.
"There is a lot of wrong in the world today," he said. "We see terrifying images on TV daily. We see people struggling in our own neighborhoods and communities. Messages in the media and even from our peers tell us we have no hope.
"But the truth is, there is always hope."
Dennis plans to prove his point when his group of talented young singers take the stage and belt out the kind of music that will give the audience a reason to forget all about the cruel world for a while.
The Show Goes On will feature pop music, rock, rap and country songs, all based on the show's theme of hope, with dramatic lighting and fancy choreography, adding an even more appealing atmosphere, Dennis said.
"The message in this performance is that no matter what anyone tells you, you have the power to change your life and to change the world," he said.
Showtimes are 7 p.m. April 26-28 with a 1 p.m. matinee April 28. Tickets are $8 in advance for general admission, or $10 at the door. Reserved seats are $12 in advance, or $15 at the door.
Tickets are available at www.tenthavenuesingers.com or by phone at 543-6770, ext. 3702.
