Sunde earns spot with
4-H Showcase Singers
Rebecca Sunde of La Grange 4-H was selected as a member of the 2003 State 4-H Showcase Singers.
Since its inception in 1987, the Wisconsin 4-H Showcase Singers have become a renowned youth performing group. Audiences at the Wisconsin State Fair and 4-H Youth Conference have been dazzled by their intricate choreography and polished vocal renditions of America's best pop and show music.
While adjectives such as "professional" and "spectacular" are used to describe the group's performances, more than half of the members have had no show choir experience prior to joining.
"Membership in Showcase Singers results in a tremendous sense of pride in achieving a high level of performance and a strong bond of friendship and family," according to a press release from 4-H Program Assistant Jan Ellsworth. "This is an exciting opportunity, and we're pleased that Rebecca was selected as a representative from Walworth County 4-H."
