Yeah.. Most of us don't start for another 2 weeks @ Bonita vista San Diego sings... I know diamond bar and Glendora just performed this past Saturday at Brea California classic, but for the majority of us SoCal peeps.. Our comp season is typically (though not limited to) End of February - mid April
It is... but it might have been reduced to Friday. California people just don't participate in online show choir anything the way that the rest of the country does, so I'll have to dig for more information.
I love this idea, Showstoppers is a huge part of show choir history. Not to mention one of the big movements from stage shows to riser shows. It will be great to see this return in the form of SoCal.
The early competition dates do scare me though. What happened to Fame Hollywood comes to mind, I'm not sure how many groups will be ready in time. And if it goes go the way Showstoppers did and attracts midwest groups, their earlier season will definitely produce some more polished shows than the way mine usually look in February.
Maybe we'll just have to get an early start next year as I'd love to perform in Disneyland (our groups only had a chance to do one competition this year and it was SeaWorld... Disney would be a huge incentive for us and great motivator for them
Definitely looking forward to hearing more about this and will be in touch to get more info for my groups.
