Soul Searchers is a youth choir directed by Scott and Nicole Hughes, based out of Eastport United Methodist Church. Beginning in January, they rehearse each Sunday until June.
Soul Searchers began performing musicals in 1972 under the direction of Bill Kerns. Made up of middle (sometimes younger), high school and college age youth (including second generation singers), their musicals have included many styles — folk, country, patriotic, gospel, and contemporary. There has been considerable talent exhibited over the years, and productions have used lights, costumes, microphones, skits, choreography, soloists, puppets, sign language, ballet, instruments, and ribbon dancers. Support crew and chaperones help set up and break down concerts.
