Foust Chorus to Perform at NCAA Women’s Tournament

ops2 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (3/25/14) — Sixty, Foust Elementary School chorus students will travel to Louisville’s YUM Center to sing the National Anthem for the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament Sunday, March 30, 11 a.m. Central time.

This won’t be the first time the chorus has performed there. Last year, they sang The Star Spangled Banner for a Lady Cardinals’ home game. In fact, since 2001 the Foust Singers have traveled to sing the National Anthem for not only U of L, but also for the University of Kentucky, Western Kentucky University, Brescia University, and Kentucky Wesleyan College athletic events.

The Foust Singers, under the direction of Kim Wirthwein, is a part of the National Anthem Project School program. Participating school choruses learn and sing the National Anthem with understanding of the lyrics and tune and help to educate other citizens. The Foust Singers practice every Wednesday afternoon after school.

“The students will get to be a part of a college athletic event that proves hard work, dedication, commitment, and teamwork will move you forward. Students witness that not every player on the floor will go on to play basketball for a living, but through their hard work and basketball talent they are working through college to better themselves,” said Ms. Wirthwein, the school’s Music Specialist.

“The students feel a sense of accomplishment and understand that they are representing OPS. They get to have that responsibility and it works hand in hand with becoming a good student and citizen. They are excited to perform and watch the game. The sense of family we build through practices and events like these are heartwarming. I get to work with my students in a very disciplined manner and then sit and watch a ballgame with them!” Ms. Wirthwein said.
