(Apologies for the delay in updates!)
What an incredible weekend! Iridescence, New Dimensions and Big Cheeks were the pride of Virginia Thursday and Friday when they performed on the Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville, TN at Show Choir Nationals! Both groups had OUTSTANDING performances, each doing their best show of the year.
- IRIDESCENCE was FIRST RUNNER UP in the Women’s Division
- BIG CHEEKS won BEST COMBO for the Women’s Division band award
- GEORGIA OLIVIER was named BEST PERFORMER overall in the Women’s Division!
Friday morning, New Dimensions took the stage with their amazing show. They rocked the stage with their energy and talent and captivated the audience with their beautiful ballad, bringing many to tears! The auditorium was on its feet when JULES JULIANO was named BEST MALE SOLOIST in the mixed preliminary awards!!
The mixed division competition was FULL of incredibly talented groups. The judges had a VERY difficult task in scoring and ranking these performances. Unfortunately, New Dimensions did not advance to the finals round on Saturday, but they are #1 in our minds and hearts. We couldn’t be prouder of ALL our performers, musicians, crew, staff, choreographer and of course the selfless, unbelievably dedicated SANDI THOMAS. We are an amazing team, thanks to her!
Thank you to all the parents, friends and families who traveled to Nashville to show support and to all those at home who have supported us throughout the year. Extra big thanks to our fantastic chaperones!
There was a huge dinner and dance party for ALL the groups from Show Choir Nationals Saturday night at the WILDHORSE SALOON. A great time was had by all! The buses left Nashville this morning about 7:30am (CST). Stopped in Knoxville for lunch a little after noon (EST). Back on the road around 1:00pm, and crossed the VA State line at 2:30pm. We anticipate an arrival time to CHHS around 7-7:30pm. UPDATES WILL BE POSTED HERE AS THEY GET CLOSER.
