Was there any reason given as to why?

“They had to cancel today last-minute” was the reason given on the live feed. Unfortunately, I don’t have any info besides that.

Man, Innovation looks huge on stage! I mean, really every Johnston choir has really incredible numbers. Kudos to them! I thought Innovation had some really powerful vocal moments and fun visuals throughout. I'm surprised how electric that performance was considering how early in the season it is (and everything else going on).

I think it’s gonna end up being really close between Johnston, Pella, and Urbandale for the top three. Really fantastic lineup for this competition! Excited to see what all the choirs have in store this year.

Are spectators allowed?

Limited spectators for each school. Each group may have its own rules about how many audience members per student. If people are allowed a voucher, they can purchase a ticket for the designated performance on the DMCS website. There are no all day passes as in years past.
