Onalaska hosts school choir showdown

La Crosse's Logan HS placed third

People packed into the auditorium at Onalaska High School Saturday night for a special night of show tunes.

For the 27th year, choirs from more than 20 middle and high schools across the Midwest took part in the two-day sing-off competition. The top six groups in the competition faced off Saturday. La Crosse’s Logan High School placed third.

The Onalaska choir director says it’s an event to show-case the hard work these students have put in all year.

“I think it’s a great example of what young people are doing these days,” he said. “I think anybody who is worried about the next generation shouldn’t. If they come to this event they will see that we are in really good hand with this future generation. They are just some fabulous students.”

Several local teams are competing in the singing show-off, including Onalaska, Holmen and Logan High School.
