Check out ‘Unsung: Behind the Glee’ on TVO, Dec. 4th, 9pm

Check out ‘Unsung:  Behind the Glee’ airing on TVO Wednesday December 4th @ 9pm.

Doc Studio’s documentary, “Unsung: Behind the Glee” charts the compelling journey of two Toronto high school show choirs as they battle time, nerves and each other to create an award-winning routine for the Show Choir Nationals, Canada’s National High School Glee Club Championships.

The documentary offers a behind-the-scenes look at two Toronto-based show choirs: “SPLASH” of the Etobicoke School of the Arts and the “Wexford Gleeks” of Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts. The schools have a healthy glee club rivalry, as each of them has won before at the Show Choir Nationals. Both are striving for a repeat performance at the third annual competition in Toronto.

Students and teachers from both schools offer different perspectives on the process of rehearsals, as well as their own brand of attitude and unique stories with uncompromising candour. The students themselves must cope with the usual high school dramas of family, friends and relationships – with the added pressure of coming up with the most original and eye-catching routine to impress the judges. Hundreds of hours of preparations make for a very boisterous show choir family – one that is often complicated and emotional but ultimately sympathetic to the shared trials and tribulations of growing up outside of the norm.
