City Lights is RBHS's mixed, competitive show choir. This 36-member choir made up of students in grades 9-12 prepares and performs a 20-minute competition show each year that includes choreography, costuming, sets, props, a live instrumental combo and tech crew. The choir performs locally at 4 times throughout the year from December-April and competes throughout the state and region 3-4 times each year.
In 2011, City Lights placed 11th at the FAME Show Choir National Championships and in 2013 they placed 9th at Show Choir Nationals in Nashville, TN. Most recently, City Lights placed 3rd at the 2015 FAME Branson Competition, qualifying them for the FAME Show Choir National Championships. Over the past 10 years, City Lights has received many accolades and trophies at state, regional and national festivals.
One of the highlights of the year for the show choirs is the Charity Benefit Concert. Over the last 11 years, the show choirs have performed for audiences and raised over $40,000 for local charities.
