Congratulations Daniel Hand and Mr. Ron Soja for running a PHENOMENAL first show choir competition. I had an absolute blast, and I'm so honored and proud to be the first GC at this amazing event. This was honestly one of the best run competitions I've ever attended in all my 4 years, and I know this will grow to be HUGE. PS, Uniondale, your kids were an absolute BLAST to hang out with.

This is a GREAT new contest, and I'd highly recommend it to those wanting to head east next year. Ron Soja and Bubba Bussiere have put together a great organization that truly made everyone feel important and welcome!!! Great sound and lighting, stiff competition and overall good people everywhere you looked!! God bless and thank for hosting all of us judges SO beautifully, Damon Brown

Middle School Predictions:

GC: Charlton Mirage (BV, BC) - Gold
1RU: Dudley Prestige - Gold
2RU: Windsor Locks Power Company - Silver

Charlton and Dudley COULD exchange caption awards but I am fairly confident of another Charlton win They have a particularly impressive group of students this year.

It's been updated above. When you shared they switched to the morning showcase, I assumed they were being awarded with the morning choirs. However, this is actually a sensible thing for once! Choirs should be grouped by skill level not just by what time is convenient for them to perform. South Windsor certainly appears to be a Tier I level choir so I'm glad they're grouped as such.

Does that mean that Choral Spectrum is competing in Tier 1?

Is it true that Choral Spectrum's performance in the morning show will be counting towards the evening awards?
