^ Thank you for sharing results all evening long. I enjoyed seeing folks live tweets of the event. It sounds like Wapak did a good job hosting! I hope to be able to make it in future years.
Major congrats to Piqua on the Grand Championship! I loved Piqua SO much when I saw them at Marion Harding and HOA Cincy. I hope your first time to Music & More was a good one - and that you'll come back!

Looks like there's 5 finalists with Wapak going on at 10:30. The last time I was at Music and More was 2008, and they had a separate Single-Gender division ineligible for finals. If they are, that would be wonderful.
Y'all have good questions and sorry I cannot be of more help. Wapak used to have a good website for their Music & More information, but I think some of that has been lost in the recent director transitions. It sounds like Alex has the schedule, so he could probably answer the question about finals times. Tickets are usually in the $8-10 range for prelims or finals and $15 or so for an all-day pass. I imagine the actual ticket cost will be something close to that. And then in terms of Finalists, as recently as 2013 and 2014, Carmel, Fairfield, and Clover Hill women's groups all made finals so unless that rule has changed I would imagine any of the mixed tiers or single-gender choirs could qualify.
It's too bad I have stuff going on this weekend - I would have loved to return to my alma mater for this contest. It's a great judging panel, in a relatively new performing arts center, and some new Music & More attendees! I don't believe Piqua has ever come up I-75 for this contest so it's great to see them (and I really enjoyed their show this year!). I'm not sure whether Marion Harding has ever attended either. This is also the competitive debut of Allen East which is a small school between Wapak and Findlay. I'm sure it'll be great for those kids to get a taste of what a show choir competition looks like.
