Tifton- The Tift County High School choir has been practicing their inaugural festival performance for weeks, but this won't be the first time they've entertained at a presidential function.
"In class they cut up they play around and they're having fun with it. But, when it's on the stage they seem to really focus and the seriousness comes around, and then they really demonstrate how talented they really are," says director Randy Barber.
Back in August, the students were invited to sing at the national American Legion Convention where President George Bush gave the keynote address.
"It's an honor and a privilege that we have this opportunity to go," says choir co-president Crystal Burns.
"It's not every day we get to see the inauguration. It's a pretty good feeling to get to go up there and sing and perform," says choir co-president Russ Vann.
One hundred seventy-five Tift County high school students will attend the festival and belt out classical and 80's songs. After weeks of practice they say they are ready.
"For the time capacity that we've had I think we've done really well, because we had a Christmas show and that took a lot of our time out," says Burns.
"I think we're as ready as we're going to be. We've been preparing really hard and working hard," says Vann.
The students will leave Wednesday and prepare for the festival on Friday. They will also sing at a wreath laying ceremony on Friday.
