The evening was hosted by the Patrons for the Performing Arts, a group of parents aimed at supporting the fine arts in Polk County and in particular local schools. Funds raised will help to defray costs of the PCHS Vocal Impression’s trip to Festival Disney – an international competition for high school choruses in Orlando, Fla. over spring break. Choral teacher Anna Marie Kuether said the trip will be especially important for Vocal Impressions members this year as it will be the first year they have competed against other choral groups from around the country. Last year the group made the trip in order to receive comments and information on how they could improve.
Sponsors for the Polk’s Got Talent event included Freer Equine Mobile Veterinary Services, Millard & Company, Bonnie Brae Veterinary Hospital, Computer Direct Outlet and Elken Studio.
Polk’s Got Talent raised about $3,000 during the event, but it will cost more than $20,000 for the 31 Vocal Impressions students to travel to Florida. Organizer Bibi Freer said students’ families will have to cover whatever is not raised. For more information, or to donate, visit
