Additional results from Benton Touch of Class 2013

Class 3A
1st Pella AcaPella
2nd Norwalk Sound Revolution
3rd Williamsburg
4th Marion New Creation
5th Forest City Avocado Heights

AcaPella won caption awards for Best Costumes and Most Creative Song. Waukee Millenium won caption for Most Creative Show.

Benton did have the 1A/2A/3A rule (highest score in the small school class makes finals, along with 5 top scoring groups) but Pella had the 6th highest score overall, so we qualified either way. (Sorry, I'm proud of that so I thought I would mention it)

John Hayden and the folks at Benton put on a fantastic competition each year. Their gym has the best light/sound/video setup of any gym you will ever see for a show choir contest. Blue Sky Productions does the video production, and it is top notch. And the judges at TOC are outstanding also: Last, Kreitzer, Currington, Eklund, Crisler, Berry, etc....

Props to all the groups at Benton on Saturday. Waukee was great, but IC West was very impressive too. Xavier and Valley have both improved greatly since I saw them earlier this year. We enjoyed competing with and watching each of the groups on stage Saturday. (Sadly, I didn't get to see Davenport North, but I hear their female soloist is unbelievable). Touch of Class 2013 was another great success!

I'm still thrown off by seeing Valley, Waukee and Dav North here... It's going to be an interesting day, that's for sure.

QUOTE (The Ethan Price @ Feb 07 2013, 11:59 PM) *

Does this competition still have the rule that the highest 1A/2A/3A group makes finals automatically? It did last year, so I am making my predictions like that.

Predictions:

GC. Waukee
1RU. Xavier
2RU. Valley
3RU. Iowa City West
4RU. Davenport North
5RU. Pella

Two things: Iowa City West is a question mark for me. This year, they have lost to Milton, who lost to Davenport North. I know you can't use the transitive property in competitions but it's still interesting to think about.

I also believe Pella will make finals here, but they did lose to Union here last year. Indianola could also make a case for finals instead of Davenport North or if they dont have the 1A/2A/3A rule.

Good luck to everyone!




Prediction:
GC:Waukee "Millenium"
1RU:Cedar Rapids Xavier "Xhilaration"
2RU:Iowa City West "Good Time Company"
3RU:Davenport North "Northside Establishment"
4RU:Valley "Choralation"
5RUella "AcaPella"

Waukee is going to slaughter this competition. I expect to hear their sopranos all the way in La Crosse this weekend. I'm in total awe of their show.

They should have the 1A/2A/3A rule. They have since at least 2003

...While Waukee was straight up amazing last year, I heard they lost a lot of seniors last year, and we all know how much that can screw over a group.


They swept their first competition and beat out some other good groups (including Prairie who had a GC of their own the week before)... it doesn't look like they're hurting too much.

Yikes. There's a huge change here. No Lincoln SW? No CR Jefferson? That actually kind of makes me sad. And while Waukee was straight up amazing last year, I heard they lost a lot of seniors last year, and we all know how much that can screw over a group. This should be interesting, but not as exciting as before.

Huge thanks to the Benton Vocal Music website. It's incredible and has all the information one could want. Judges and ticket prices have been posted. For anyone interested in scoresheets, those are also available here: daytime and finals.

Benton is also putting an interesting spin on the traditional "People's Choice Award" by calling it the "Twitter Award" where people can follow @bcvocalmusic to vote for their favorite choir!
