About - Singing in Wisconsin (SIW) is a perfect place for those students who just love to sing regardless of ability.  This event, which takes place at four sites throughout Wisconsin on the second weekend of November, is for any choir student who loves to sing and wants to be a part of this day.  For some students, it is the one time a year where they can sing with a large group of students and truly feel the power of singing with many voices. For other students, it is a day to connect with new friends and work together to create a significant musical moment.  The cost per student is $45 ($20 for free/reduced lunch); all participants receive a t-shirt.
