The 2017 Showcase of Excellence, presented by Quincy Senior High School Music Department, will be held this Saturday, March 11th.  This will mark the 25th anniversary of this event and will run from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and will feature Jazz bands and Show choirs from Illinois, Missouri and Iowa.

Tickets will be available at the door for $10 for adults and $8 for students K-12. Food will be available throughout the day as well. Proceeds will benefit the music programs in the Quincy Public schools.

The Big Dog had the opportunity to talk more about the Showcase of Excellence with Dan Sherman, who despite being retired, still manages to be a big part of the Q.H.S. Music Department.
