The Wichita Flight showchoir is an area-wide competitive showchoir who just started their fifth season. A non-profit organization founded in August of 2014, Flight was uniquely established with the purpose of giving teens throughout the Wichita area the opportunity to participate in a competitive showchoir setting in a city where that hasn’t existed. Directed by Kristina Sims, choreographed by Erik Hall and Kristina Sims, and combo direction by Eric & Nina Jerke. This year Flight is comprised of 45 singer/dancers and 8 instrumentalists from 16 area schools throughout the greater Wichita area.
The mission of the Wichita Flight Showchoir is to inspire and enrich the lives of young people by fostering excellence in musicianship, performance technique, and citizenship while serving as ambassadors to the Greater Wichita area. Additionally, Flight strives to instill confidence, teach responsibility, and build time management and organizational skills in an upbeat, positive environment.
Members of Flight meet once per week and are also involved in numerous activities at their own schools as well as in the Wichita community. Flight students enjoy working with guest clinicians, long road trips, and bonding over donuts. Flight is so grateful for the overwhelming amount of support and welcome that the showchoir community has shown them in their first two years.
Flight is about so much more than just singing and dancing and hopes to impact everyone they meet with a love of music and family.
