For whatever reason, I really have a feeling that Burbank isn’t gonna take this comp. Obviously, they look and sound amazing, but they’re not unbeatable, especially with an incredible lineup like this. I wouldn’t be shocked to see them sweep, but I also wouldn’t be shocked to see them dropping as low as fourth. Show choir is wild and anything can happen!
We are super excited to host this years 13th Annual Choral Classic!! I have an updated link to Wheaton Warrenville South's home website for Esprit and Classics!! wwsshowchoirs.org
If you have any questions regarding the competition feel free to ask! Thank you!
GC: Burbank "In Sync" (BV)(BC)
1RU: Westside "ATSC" (BB)

It is pretty interesting comparing my old prediction with my prediction now.

Wheaton North had one of my favorite shows last season, they will be in the top 3 no doubt. I don't see anyone beating Burbank though. I'm also excited to see how Petal does here. They got 1st runner up at Glenwood last year and I think they will be just as good if not better this year. Already crossing my fingers for a live stream of this one!
Very Early Predictions:
GC: Wheaton North (BV)
1RU: Burbank (BC)
4RU: Omaha Westside
These are definitely bold predictions, but I’m taking into account the fact that it’ll be an entirely new season with new shows and new groups of students. I predicted the big upset because if anyone in this roster can best Burbank, it’s Wheaton North. It’s also fun to see groups like Petal and Beavercreek making their way to Wheaton for the first time (in a good while at least). Can not wait for this event!
