Community members are invited to attend a production filled with secular, sacred and "goofy" musical numbers in the Northview High School auditorium Sunday, Oct. 9.

The Knights Choral Boosters will be hosting the 2nd annual Fall Spaghetti Dinner along with the Choral Showcase.

Dinner will be served from 12-2 p.m., as well as 3:30-5:30, with the concert beginning at 2:15.

"It's been a challenge preparing for this in only seven weeks, but the students always rise to the occasion," Northview Choir Director Kristina Waugh said.

Over 200 students from both North Clay Middle School and Northview High School will perform a variety of songs including Buffalo Gals, a hoe-down with a hint of choreography, a madrigal number telling the story of the Three Blind Mice, sacred songs in both Latin and Hebrew tongues and acapella musical renditions accompanied by a percussion ensemble.

Performers include the North Clay sixth-grade choir and a combined seventh and eighth-grade choir, the Northview Symphonic Choir and the Knights Singers.

Northview High School sophomore Ashley Deakins, who sings alto, said she feels the choir has worked hard and learned a lot.

"We really need to work together and be united as one to pull this off. We need to remember that we can work together and be leaders," Deakins said. "My favorite song is Al Shlosha D'varim because it's about peace and has lots of really pretty harmonies."

The concert will close with the performance of Buffalo Gals by Bob Chilcott.

Northview High School junior Samantha Gibbens, a soprano, says she really enjoys performing the number and hopes that the audience will like it just as much as she does.

"It's basically a love-at-first-sight story. Boy meets girl -- they dance and get married right away," Gibbens explained. "I like having fun when I sing; my whole day is better afterwards."

Pre-sale dinner tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children and can be purchased through any choir member.

Tickets will be $8 at the door the night of the concert.

All proceeds from the dinner go to benefit the Northview and North Clay choirs.

Dinner will consist of spaghetti with or without meat sauce, seasoned green beans, garlic bread, lemonade and water. Dessert will also be available for a donation.

Two other Northview productions are also in the works.

Community members can enjoy The Music Man, Nov. 18-19, and Northview will present its Christmas Spectacular, Dec. 8-9, 11. Tickets for these shows will go on sale at a later date to be announced.
