With 4 states already represented and with only a few spots remaining in the schedule...we would like to invite and inform you all of the 28th Annual Koste Classic- renamed in honor of our long time principal Mr. Pete Koste.
"Stars on Stage" is an extremely well run and reputable competition located just outside Richmond, Va. Just a couple of hours from DC. Having hosted choirs from numerous states over the years! We pride ourselves on a truly enjoyable experience for all! #kosteclassic

A top notch judging panel, accommodating host rooms, exciting themes provided by our boosters and vendors, and a BRAND NEW sound and lighting system in the largest competition venue in VA, seating 1100+ spectators with some of the most excitable show choir fans who keep the support and love at a fever pitch throughout the two days!

Please consider joining us as we celebrate the art of show choir during the first weekend of "Music in our Schools" month, March 3-4, 2017.

Contact for specials on hotel accommodations and other educational experiences provided in the region!
