Union Performing Arts have a long and varied history of excellence in all areas, offering choir, band, show choir, jazz band, marching band, pep band, yearly fall play, yearly spring musical, dance team, individual speech events, and large group speech events.
Union speech has won the “Critics Choice” award for the top performance in the state 3 times for musical theater and once for Ensemble acting. Since 2000, 65 Union Musicians, 18 Individual Speech and 38 Large Group speech events have been chosen as All-Staters.
The large group music ensembles are consistent earners of Division I awards at State Contest as well as earning academic awards from the State association. Union vocalists have yearly been asked to perform the national anthem at state finals in volleyball, football, basketball, soccer and speech.
Community outreach is important as the Union Carolers annually perform over 50 holiday gigs throughout the Cedar Valley decked out in Dickensian outfits and the band performs at Veterans events, community parades and Memorial day services. Excellence is the standard with participation at the highest level.
