YORK, Pa. — A group of local high school students is preparing to perform the show of a lifetime. 

The Eagle Singers with Bermudian Spring High School in Adams County earned the opportunity to open for legendary rock band Foreigner at the York State Fair this Saturday. 

The group won a radio contest for the opportunity. 

At rehearsals for the event, the choir director revealed they're still in shock. 

"I just can't wait to hear how the crowd is going to shower them with praise and cheers because they so deserve it," Choir Director Matt Carlson said. 

"These kids have been through so much over the past two years with our pandemic," he went on. "They've had live performance taken away from them. So, coming out of that to have one that's going to be one of the biggest of their lives it's just going to be incredibly special for everyone." 

The show will begin at 8 p.m. on July 23.
