A three-week singing competition featuring talent from both Dordt College and Northwestern College will culminate with a final performance Nov. 12 at Northwestern,beginning at 10 p.m.

NC/DC eXtreme is the first collaborative event between the Dordt College Student Activities Committee and the Northwestern College Student Activities Committee, both referred to as SAC.

The premiere show Oct. 29 featured seven singers from Dordt and seven singers from Northwestern. Dordt College students who made the top seven are Alecia Engelsman, Rosie Grantham, Kansas Calkhoven, Rebekah Oudman, Dan Zylstra, Joe Hoksbergen and Justin Vande Kerk. Northwestern students who made the top seven are Laura Gould, Kayla Hall, Krissy Hanson, Jilliann Leader, Joelle Morrison, Steven Pike and Joel Scholten.

On the Semi-Finals Night, Nov. 5, four singers from Dordt and four singers from Northwestern performed. Finals Night, Nov. 12, only one singer from Dordt, one singer from Northwestern, and a wildcard performer will compete for the $500 first-place.

Students from both campuses will be responsible for letting their voices be heard by voting to advance students through the competition. Three judges will also assist in the competition. They are Linsay Carlson, representing Dordt College; Annabell Du Mez, a neutral judge; and Todd McDonald, representing Northwestern College. Admission into all nights of the show is free.

“We’re really excited about this unprecedented event between our two campuses,” said Josh Bowar, Dordt College SAC Co-Chair. “We’ve put in a lot of hard work on both sides, and we hope that this event brings the campuses together, that everyone has a lot of fun, and that the competition can continue in the future.”

“We’ve really enjoyed collaborating with Northwestern,” commented LeAnne Kooienga, Dordt College SAC Co-Chair. “We hope that a lot of students come out and support our Dordt singers.”
