I just want to congratulate all the groups for the amazing performances friday and Saturday. I got to watch every single group I announced , and I was thoroughly entertained the entire day it was amazing. AND THE AUDIENCE. This had to be the best crowd of parents, spectators and other show choir students I have ever witnessed at a competition. It was incredible how reactive and interactive they were during the performances, and during our host performance, even going as far as to saying the whoops in our opener with us lol! The energy throughout the entire day was unmatched. Every single group delivered. Amazing amazing job to all the groups!!! The best send off I could ask for for the last time I host.

Don't count Mt. Zion out for the GC here. They're one of the best groups I've seen all year.
