Company, Directed by Jim Kimmel, recently performed for the bi-annual national convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Las Angeles, February 2-6, 2005. In addition to a successful trip, the students had the opportunity to attend a taping of The Price is Right. They were asked to perform for the audience, and then one of the members, Jack Young, was selected as a contestant. Jack missed winning the $22,000 car by one guess, but did win several smaller prizes. The show airs on March 2 for anyone interested in watching.
