High School's Fall Follies Showcases Student Talent
An abundance of talent was featured at Highlands High School's annual Fall Follies Talent Show on October 24! Directed by Highlands High School choral director Mr. Michael Zeiler, the show included selected auditioned acts, the HHS Honors Choir, the HHS Variations Show Choir, and a special "Thriller Performance".
A highlight of the show featured a very special tribute involving current seniors that Mr. Zeiler had the honor and privilege to direct as elementary students. The students (and Mr. Zeiler) recreated the choreography and performed the song "Mr. Mom" from their 3rd grade elementary country-themed concert, entitled "Hee Haw!" Even a few seniors who aren't in choir joined the group for the tribute!
Special thanks to the shows emcees, Breea Bonnett, Sam Dutch, Georgia Peters, Casey Quillen and James Vance (cameo appearance), and to Mr. Jonathan Westergom for the audio/visual expertise.
Congratulations and thank you to the student groups and individuals below for sharing their vocal, dance and instrumental talents with the Highlands community!
