Faces of Our Future Shine for SDSU Foundation
HS and South Dakota State University Foundation have a long history of creating epic and memorable productions. It’s a cherished partnership HS does not take for granted, and we love the motivation of creating an event worthy of generous alumni donors’ commitment.
The 2023 event was held at the Oscar Howe Performance Center on campus. The challenge: to recognize, reward and entertain over 800 attendees.
The ‘Faces of Our Future’ theme featured several HS-produced inspirational videos highlighting the SDSU marching band’s live and recorded Macy Day Parade performance, The Family of the Year special award, and several video supported speeches.
In addition, the organized production of over 60 SDSU choir members was joined by over 90 Sioux Falls middle school students in several choreographed songs synced to multiple projected video surfaces live action mixed with pre-produced videos. The over 150 singers—directed by SDSU choir director, Dr. Laura Diddle—was met with a standing ovation halfway through the first song with another at the conclusion.
The multi-media live event was once again a success thanks to the vision and collaboration of the SDSU Foundation and the HS team.
