The 3rd Annual Savannah’s S.O.N.G. Variety Show will be held Friday, Feb. 28 beginning at 7 p.m. in the Altus City Auditorium. This promises to be a full night of entertainment for the entire family.
The show will include 28 acts by talented, young people ready to entertain you and show off their musical abilities. The show includes vocalists, duets, instruments, and even some dancers.
Savannah Phillips, a Senior at Altus High School, started doing the show three years ago to raise funds for kids that cannot afford to be involved with music programs in our local community schools. The first year she raised $4,700 to kickstart her program. Since then, she has funded all-region and all-state fees for students, helped defer hotel room costs for music and band students, and even tuned pianos for music classrooms.
The 2nd annual show raised $1,173 for ACA to start a music program in their school. This year all the proceeds of the show will go to the Altus High School Musical fund for next years musical. Savannah was honored to have one of the leads in the high school musical “Shrek” as Fiona, and she realized how expensive it is to put on a quality production. Thus spurring her to help get the musical fund started for next years production.
Savannah would like to thank all of the sponsors and supporters of her program over the last three years, and feels truly blessed to be able to help others in her community.
Admission is free for the Feb. 28 show, but all donations will be accepted to go towards the AHS musical fund. If you cannot attend the show, but would like to donate to the cause, please contact Shelley at 580-471-6958.
