On Friday, March 29, SHMS Tri-M Music Honor Society hosted their 3rd annual talent show.  

The talent show consisted of seven acts that performed: Road to Epiphany, Haley Coulter, Bri Schmuck, Christopher Smith, Harold Bynum, Alexis Wise, and Tim Fout and Trevor M. 

Christopher Smith, who played a piece on the piano, won first place. The group called Road to Epiphany won second place by playing an original song. Harold Bynum also got second place by performing a dubstep dance. Third place went to Haley Coulter who sangWhose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under.” 

During intermission, the audience could put money towards their favorite act. The winner would receive a trophy for people’s choice. Along with winning second place, Road to Epiphany won people’s choice selected by the audience.

“The money from the talent show gets split up between the departments. The money will go towards new music and equipment,” said senior Tri-M member Niki Green.  

Since the school first opened, there have been three talent shows presented by Tri-M.  

“When we were planning fundraiser ideas during a meeting, someone had mentioned the idea of a talent show. We thought it would be a great tradition to continue at SMHS,” said Green. 

Talent shows are a great way to raise money towards the art and music departments. Having talent shows also benefits the students because they can showcase their talents and whatever they are passionate about.  

“The audition process and being able to see students’ talents is fun. We just knew we had to bring it back again because everyone loves to come and watch the students perform,” said Green. 

Talent shows are the best way to experience performing in front of others and showing off a special talent.  Next time there is a talent show, don’t be afraid to push the boundaries and escape a comfort zone when trying out.
