The All Americans are the advanced mixed show choir at Heid’s ETC School of Musical Arts. This talented group is composed of over 35 9th-12th grade students from the greater Akron area. Our members span from over 15 schools and 3 counties from Akron, to Canton, to Cleveland, and to Youngstown.
These talented young people practice once a week on Sundays for 4 hours from 1:30pm – 5:30pm at their studio in Akron. ETC gives each student the opportunity to take part in a competitive show choir, something that they often do not have the opportunity to do at their schools. They make lifelong friendships and create strong bonds with people that they would not have had the opportunity to meet otherwise in their everyday lives.
Over the years the All Americans have captured multiple awards including grand champion, best vocals, best choreography, best band, best show design, best female and male soloist at competitions throughout the US. The group has also toured in Great Britain, France, Whales, New Zealand, and Australia. In the 2023 the All Americans placed in the top 7 in every competition they attended. They also won Grand Champions at th Hurricane Red Hot Championship winning Choreography and having the highest scoring Instrumental Combo!
This years group is under the Musical Direction of Zack Triscari and Brian Rodabaugh, Artistic Direction of Tara Tober, and choreography by Tara Tober and Jacob Jay Jones. They are excited to start the 2024 season!
