We are excited to be traveling to Nashville, TN to perform at the Grand Ole Opry! There are lots of details we will need to share with you as we prepare for the trip. Please watch this page as well as ParentSquare and Facebook to stay updated with the latest information.
Hotel Sign Ups – Due October 20, 2024
Chaperone slots riding the bus with the students are already filled; however we will need more parent chaperones onsite with us at the competition. Room packages are available for parents traveling to Nashville for the event, regardless of chaperone status; however, space is limited. Depending on the number of parents interested, the hotel may or may not be able to accommodate everyone. Mr. Neubauer has reserved a limited number of hotel rooms at another hotel, which may be purchased by those who are not chaperoning but wish to attend. Rooms at the conference hotel will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. The extra hotel rooms from Mr. Neubauer will be handled in the same way. If we have more parents than the conference hotel and Mr. Neubauer reserved rooms can accommodate, it will be up to the parents to reserve their own rooms. We will let you know as soon as we hear back from the conference hotel so that you can make these arrangements.
The competition provides a package when purchased through the choir department. This package includes:
- Tickets to the competition
- 4 days/3 nights at Grand Ole Opry Hotel
- Dinner and Dance at the Marathon Music Works with the students one night (more information forthcoming)
Student hotels are covered through their fees.

Show Choir Nationals Competition Schedule
Thursday – Women’s Division
Friday – Mixed Division
Saturday – Mixed Finals
A more detailed itinerary will be made available soon, but please reference this draft agenda shared at the October 4th Parent Meeting in the meantime.
Students will leave on buses early Thursday morning, most likely prior to the start of school day and plan to arrive in Nashville around lunchtime in order to get lunch, get access to rooms and get ready for New Dimension’s performance that evening.
New Dimension will perform in the Women’s Division Thursday evening and there are no finals for this division.
On Friday, Signers will perform during the daytime and hopefully will return to the stage on Saturday morning for finals, though there is no guarantee.
There is a party for the students and hotel package ticket holders only offsite at Marathon Music Works Saturday evening.
Students will leave Sunday morning on buses to return home.
Tickets are available at the venue for those attending the event without the package. Tickets are $20 per day. If you pay by card rather than cash, there is a 5% surcharge.
Programs will be available for $5 cash or $5 plus 5% fee for cards.
Preliminary Information on Student Cost in Nashville (as of 9/28/23)
We are working hard to get you additional information regarding what meals might be provided. At this point, we know that food will be provided for the night of the dance. Please plan to send money for your child to get food on the trip down and at least two of three meals per day. We will be stopping on the way home for lunch, and each student will be responsible for purchasing their own lunch on Sunday as well. If your student will want a program, shirt, or other mementos, please plan to send money for that as well.
For Additional Information
