CenterStage

Show Choir

CenterStage is Osbourn High School’s award-winning show choir comprised of 21 singers/dancers, 14 band members (The Toastie Josties) and 4 crew members.  They perform in 3-4 competitions per year and also represent the OSH choir department at events throughout the City of Manassas and Prince William County.

Our students work extraordinarily hard on their show performance from early Fall to competition season in February and March.  In class, after school and sometimes on weekends, they also take time away from classes to support their community while still maintaining academic excellence.

Fundraisers held throughout the year and the support of sponsors keeps the costs of the program down for students and provides them with the resources they need on the path to success.

If you are interested in finding out more about supporting CenterStage by hiring them to perform for your event, contact us for more information.
