OSSIAN â€” Columbia City High Schoolâ€™s show choir traveled to Norwell High School Saturday for another weekend of show choir competition.
However, this weekend was a chance for the choirs to meet up with Austin High School for an emotional reunion.
In February, Austin High Schoolâ€™s choir was on its way to compete at Northop High School when slick road conditions cause the schoolâ€™s equipment trailer and truck to slide off the road, destroying much of the groupâ€™s gear.
