(Peoria, Ariz.)— For the 25 talented choir members from Peoria High School’s Encore group, travelling the country to sing and entertain the masses is commonplace. The talented group proudly performed at the Arizona Capitol, Carnegie Hall and even in Washington, D.C. in the past year.

Now, the oldest choir in Peoria is the most recent recipient of Fulton Homes Noon Salute honor through the first week of December. The choir will display their vocal talents on KOOL FM 94.5 every day this week at noon. The performance can also be heard at . For the third consecutive year, Fulton Homes and 94.5 KOOL FM have united for the Fulton Homes’ Noon Salute. Each week during the school year, Fulton Homes and KOOL FM recognize exceptional performances by area middle school and high school bands by airing a performance of “The Star Spangled Banner.” At the end of each month, one of the groups is selected to receive a $1,000 donation from Fulton Homes. Furthermore, each ensemble’s performance will be on an Internet URL for others to listen to. The program is designed to acknowledge high school musicians and their hard work and commitment to their musical studies, as well as the teachers who develop their abilities.

“Fulton Homes is truly delighted to recognize this distinguished Peoria choir,” Doug Fulton, Fulton Homes CEO, said. “It is rewarding to give these students the chance to show off their musical abilities on the radio all week long and to have family members and friends to tune in to hear their vocals throughout the week.”

To enter your high school’s version of the “The Star Spangled Banner” for a chance to be featured, mail a CD to: KOOL FM, 840 North Central Ave., Phoenix, Ariz., 85004. To listen to the Panther’s Encore’s version of the national anthem, tune in 94.5 KOOL FM every day at noon.
