The musical theater class presented the musical Once on This Island, Jr. in February.

It had its first public performance as a show choir on the competition stage at Disney World recently, bringing home the "Silver Mickey" statue for taking second place in the specialty choir category, finishing just one point behind a choir from Miami.

The choreography was done by Powell's dance instructor, Serena Young. She taught the routine to a few students, who then taught it to the 34-member choir. Their musical selections included Somebody to Love by Queen, the Jackson 5's I Want You Back/ABC 123 and Rascal Flatts' Bless the Broken Road.

Said Powell's choral director, David Pletincks: "We really have some amazingly talented kids here at Powell, and this gives us another great way to showcase all of their talents and skills."
