So...what's different? Why the change? It all started in 1995 when Richland HS Band invited the Richland HS choir and Haltom HS Band to join in a middle school choir and band fundraiser with Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. Thus was born the Hurricane Harbor Middle School Choir Festival and Beach Within Reach Middle School Band Festival. Over the years, the festival expanded to include all three high school choir programs in the middle school choir festival. As a result, the Birdville Choir Boosters, Inc. was born as an entity to help the festivals operate outside of Birdville ISD.
Over the years, as more and more attendees searched for venues in April, BCBI decided to forego their contract with Hurricane Harbor and pursue a new avenue - Main Event. In April 2021, The Main Event Choir Festival will host its premiere festival at Birdville HS. Moving away from the water brings more exciting opportunities for you (the director) and your choir students! Enjoy laser tag, arcade games, bowling, shuffleboard, food, sodas, and more the SAME DAY you compete! No more waiting until Saturday to enjoy any reward! Compete, celebrate your singing, and enjoy Main Event all the same day!
While the Hurricane Harbor Middle School Choir Festival traded their old jacket for a new one, the friendly faces, service, and expectations are all the same - same festival, new name, cooler rewards!
