For the 41st consecutive year, Ada hosted its Music Feast, which is an invitational competition of show choirs from nine schools in Ohio and Michigan.

The Varsity Singers involve one in five Ada High School students with 28 singer/dancers and a 13-member band assisted by 6 crew members. They are under the direction of Scott Henning, vocal music director, and Jonathan Lischak, director of instrumental music.
