Honestly I sat in the same place for prelims... and these were what first came to my mind....
-Diction in ballad
-Blend more in Novelty
-You couldnâ€™t here violins in ballad
-Great male sound
-Best Ballad All Day
-Work on Diction
-Majorly work on male tone in opener
-Blending is a nightmare
-awesome female sound
-Very Entertaining Show
-Clean up the arms
-Good Male Sound
-Get rid of the pointing in the ballad, as itâ€™s very sloppy and we already know thereâ€™s a solo on stage.
-I was looking for more sound at the end of your crescendos
-Men overpower women in â€œWeâ€™re Dancingâ€
-Soloists in the closer needs to take the stage
-Youâ€™re running out of steam at the end of your show.
-Opening blocking was off
-Watch the arms some were being flung around aimlessly
-make each stretched arm have 200,000 volts going out of the end of your hands.
-Add facials to your show, as it isnâ€™t very entertaining with out them
-Make sure the props are secure
-Men please get rid of those tops, Iâ€™d recommend a black shirt with black pants
-Closer: I was definatly waiting for the big dance break.
-I Love the female sound
-Soloists need to take the stage and make it theirs
-I love those suspended chords
-ADORIBLE BALLAD (LOVE IT) J
-Men: watch the diction
-Watch your tone in opening sequence
-watch the arms flying around with no purpose
-Diction in 2nd number
-I love the robots
-lines could be defined more
-girl in 2nd row SL is distracting my head to the left
-bring the tenors back a little bit in the ballad
-clean the â€œbody breakâ€
-Girls: watch the â€œno!â€ the tone was a little off
-If girls are turned around, make sure theyâ€™re going to be heard in the back row.
-guy 2nd row SL is a count or two off
-last chord was a hair flat
-Get rid of the first costumes the 2nd one fits u better
-Soloist: make a present break between â€œOkla-no whereâ€, also add facials to that solo, itâ€™s about getting off the train and actually be getting a job. Be Excited about it.
-Clean the arms, and make them more defined
-love the second dance break, you can add some sounds to that, to make it more fun/dramatic.
-Very lovely ballad
-Awesome & Entertaining Novelty
-Watch the handâ€™s in Jellyâ€™s Jam.
-You have the best show all day.
-pretty much the only thing Iâ€™d say is make sure u bring David Fehrâ€™s arrangement to life
-Bring the love of music to your faces. 5% donâ€™t have facials

Honestly, this is what I felt should've gone down, but then again my opinion doesn't count because I'm not sitting up in the bleacher's with the tape recorder ;). So I hope you guys don't hate me too much.
btw: Everyone did really well yesterday, it was avery well performed show, I know its cliche but I loved it .
OH MY GOSH WOW PIQUA! im so excited for you guys that is awesome to start off the season with a GC wow! i cant believe it! but you still gotta alot of power house schools to compete against so work your butt offs! and anything can happen! i wish i was there but unfortnately im in Colorado but good luck with all of your other comps. and i will there for sure at the TWINSBURG contest to cheer on The Company love you guys!
This was an awesome competition . I too felt that Findlay made a very classy sacrafice on their part. I loved hanging out with some Marysville people at finals. John, we had an awesome time "critiquing" other groups ;). I do have some decent critiques/comments for everyone... Would u like to hear them?
I went over to Ada's contest two or three years ago, and Findlay made the same decision to pull out of the night show because of football playoffs. I think it's a wonderful show of maturity on their part to sacrifice their competition in order to support another organization from their school. How many competing show choirs would do that? I am glad to see that Findlay is keeping it classy under new direction.
What were the daytime results, and what did people think of Findlay? I am looking forward to seeing them this year, and I wonder what they're up to.

i have to say that Piqua was amazing! i've been looking forward to seeing them since i heard you were attending Ada, and the trip was most definitely worth it. vocally the group has taken another step, and the show itself is more cohesive than last year's. congratulations on a great show and a great placement (although now i'm a little worried for my own group - we compete against Piqua three times this year).
Great Job everyone....Piqua you were very good in finals awesome job! Also congrats to Van Buren your two of a kind number is a HOOT I love it....you guys are awesome this year you definately gave piqua a run for there money.
