"Rock-A-Palooza isn't a traditional concert, but a choral rock show.  Rock-A-Palooza is student led from start to finish.  Students in the choral department choose and prepare popular songs to sing in small ensembles and as soloists.  Student choreographers, light and sound designers, and rock band members round out the show.  Come enjoy this fantastic choral rock show!"
