Excited Maine music programs, 35 of them traveled to Houlton Maine April 4th, 2009 to compete in the Maine State Jazz Show Choir Competition. Over 200 volunteers, music boosters and up to 150 Houlton band and chorus members help organize, set up, run and tear down
the stages in the Houlton High School auditorium and gym for the event. Things started at 6am and finished after midnight by the time the Houlton Maine high school is spiffed back to its original condition. Watch the State Of Maine Jazz Show Choir Competition video. This is the fourth state event Houlton Maine has hosted and has it down to a science with planning, material’s purchase, set up and tear down. Lots of logistics but Houlton’s Joe Fagnant has done them before. Hear his comments in the above video hyperlink!
