“This year’s Singstock festival will be truly something you won’t want to miss.” Spindler said. “We are so proud to bring back a show choir festival, not only to New Lonon, but also to the Fox Cities. If you have never been to a show choir festival before, it is truly uplighting and amazing what high school kids can do in a live performance.”
