The Drumheller Valley Secondary School choir is heading to Edmonton.

The trip to Edmonton was funded by a rock show put in by the DVSS choir students. Over 50 students rocked the gym last Wednesday and Thursday in the attempt to raise money for the trip scheduled for June 8.

"It went really well. We raised almost $1,000 for the students for the trip to Edmonton. It was really nice, it really reduced the cost for the students," explained James Foster, Choir Director at DVSS. "Everyone had a really good, positive performance and we had a really good turnout."

During their trip, the students will be taking in a few activities including watching a musical and touring the West Edmonton Mall.

"The students put out a lot of effort and did a great job," he said. "It wouldn't have been possible without them putting in as much work as they did."

The students will also be stopping in a few places on the way to Edmonton to perform.

"We're going to be performing at some schools and retirement homes on the way up to Edmonton. Then we're catching a musical called Runaway Bridesmaids," concluded Foster.

The event, with all 50 students, had students not just performing in the choir. Some helped with lighting, staging and choreography.
