Hi there, provides a handy listing of competition details and results to help promote activities within our community, but we aren't connected to the event directly. However, we do provide links to the official event websites when available (look for "Event Site" in the menu bar above), and the one associated with this event does have a contact page of their own. Here is a direct link for you:

This looked to be a very close contest in Tier I. Congrats to FFE and other choirs for great performances tonight. I've already talked a lot about Fairfield's and Marysville's shows in previous posts, so here's some love for Medina and FFE:

Medina - I’ve been such a big fan these past few years. I think the Fortune show put y’all on the radar for me. What I love most about this year’s show is your arrangements. I’m not sure if that’s courtesy of Mr. Skidmore or other folks, but the dynamics y’all have, the integration with the band and choreo, it’s all just *chefs kiss*. Specifically the beginning vocal moment and your ballad. I mean, “Go The Distance” is a somewhat common show choir song, but that way y’all sing it brings it new life and just keeps me engaged. Combining that with the Steven Harris choreography, I really love the product y’all are putting out.

FFE - So your BALLAD. Holy crap, it’s so good??? When can I download it on iTunes? I had assumed it was a Ben Wexler original, but from the reaction of your choir with the judge's award it looks like it was a student composer?? Tell me more. That’s amazing. I also appreciated the Boingers choreography during Blue Suede Shoes and your big tap number at the end. It didn’t look like the jump ropes were on your side this performance, but hey I can’t imagine the hours y’all have put into practicing that specific part of the closer. Great show, I really enjoyed it!

Thank you for the kind words - we are always trying to learn and create new things. Our team deserves the credit for the design of our show - Katie Peyton, Tom Bonezzi (who is our primary arranger), and Steven Harris - it really is a wonderfully collaborative effort.

Thank you for the very kind words about our performance! The ballad this year was written by one of the members of our group, along with Ben Wexler. She wrote "Saying Goodbye" as a result of all that happened during the onset of the pandemic last March. And the genius of Ben Wexler composed an additional melody to combine with it, "Open Eyes." We are very proud of the final product, and thrilled to hear that you enjoyed it so much.

So so proud of my AAs and Rougies today! Y’all absolutely killed it out there, and have improved so much from what I got to see earlier this season. I can’t wait to see what you all do when we’re not in a panny

Is there a separate live stream for awards, and if so is it free?

Is the livestream only for this evening? It says 9 pm?

I believe whatever issue they were having has now been fixed. It now says 9 am. It's a paid live stream for a $5 fee. It should be for all day access. Hope that helps!

Thanks, I had already paid when I was having issues getting on. It worked in time for me to watch Fairfield. Good job Olentangy!

i was told that this is running as a festival, is this still true?

They very well could, I'm not sure. Marysville, which is the next week after Olentangy, is doing festival format with ratings/captions. It's been a common method for this season. Originally, Olentangy was offering a championship division (for placement) and a festival division (for rating), but their posted schedule didn't utilize those divisions so I imagine they might've just moved it all over to festival. I'm sure we'll find out sooner or later.

Olentangy is a competition. It was a misunderstanding when we thought it was a festival

I believe Marysville has changed to a competition format now.

Apparently so. Things change every other day this season, but hey at least there is a season.

I’d love to be able to attend this event in person. Very hard to predict a winner here because of how many quality groups are competing !!!
