While many students are looking forward to packing up their books at the end of the school year, several aspiring singers are looking forward to packing their clothes at the end of this week. Third graders at Colonel William Casey Elementary in Adair County are doing more than singing their school song. They're getting ready to go on tour!
The show choir is called Encore. It's the first one ever of its kind at the school. This week more than twenty students will perform at four different places in Kentucky and Indiana.
The show choir leaves Thursday for its first performance at My Old Kentucky Home. Friday the singers go to Kosar Children's Hospital in Louisville then perform on WHAS radio. They'll end their tour at a mall in Clarksville, Indiana.
