Student and community performers auditioned for the chance to perform in the show. Erickson said this year's show included a surprise performance.

"One of the highlights of the evening was a 'Recorder Flash Mob,'" said Erickson. "Al Duerkop, Somerset Elementary Music Teacher, lead an ensemble of recorder players in his arrangement called 'Ode To Chaos.'"

'Ode to Chaos,' Erickson said, featured an arrangement of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy."
