British Invasion coming to RVHS

| October 26, 2018

WARSAW – At the end of every pops concert Dawn Anglin asks her choir students at River View to reflect on the performance and give suggestions for future themes.

“More than one student said something about The Beatles, but I didn’t want to do just them,” she said. “There is so much great music from that style. At our end of the year picnic for seniors I heard someone say something about a British invasion and that became the theme for this year.”

The River View Music Department will present British Invasion on Friday, Nov. 9 in the high school auditorium. Dinner starts at 5 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Admission is $4, an adult dinner is $8 and a child dinner is $5. Tickets can be purchased online at

“This is the first time we are doing online tickets and it’s preferred that you get them that way,” Anglin said. “Any tickets purchased at the door will probably be seats in the back.”

The preshow dinner will feature chicken breast and mashed potatoes and gravy.

“Parents in our music booster’s group help with that,” Anglin said. “I don’t think we could exist like we do without them. There are adult volunteers in the boosters who have been doing this for over 20 years, long after their kids have graduated.”

Those who attend the show will hear the music of: Queen, The Beatles, Coldplay, Rod Stewart, One Direction and Hamilton.

“Our chamber choir sings Beatles songs with the most enthusiasm,” Anglin said. “Their songs are timeless and you can tell they’ve heard them before.”

The pops concert is held once a year in the fall and features the high school’s concert choir, chamber choir and Certified Gold and junior high choir members.

“We’ve talked about the historical significance of the theme too,” Anglin said. “The kids can’t believe the hysteria over The Beatles and how women rushed the stage. We are going to work that into the show. There will be a lot of backdrops, props, movement and lighting with this. We are excited to put this on for the community.”
