PIQUA — The Piqua High School show choir The Company, earned their third grand champion title on Saturday, Jan. 28.
Having already secured grand champion status at the Ada Music Feast and the Beavercreek Classic, The Company has now brought home the same honor last weekend, from the Findlay Fest competition, a Piqua City Schools press release said.
The 54 singer/dancers, 18 instrumental combo and 12 stage crew members threw everything at the judges — including the “kitchen sink.” Yes, at one point there is a kitchen sink that appears in the show, the release said.
The Company’s show this year is packed full of surprises to entertain audiences. The second song, “You won’t Succeed in Show Choir” is a play on the clever Broadway song, “You won’t Succeed on Broadway.” A true fan favorite, this song is full of humor, props and dancing that are sure to entertain. Another shining moment in the show is during the transition song featuring the award-winning instrumental combo, Audio Hype, as they play a Michael Jackson medley with members of the show choir joining them on instruments.
Along with being named grand champions, The Company earned the people’s choice award, best show concept, best instrumental combo, best vocals and placed first in the large mixed division. The dynamic performer award was awarded to Logan Tucker.
“The success we are seeing is the direct result of hard work and dedication. This group of young people never fail to amaze and impress me! I want to thank the students, staff, parents and community for their continued love and support,” said Director Tom Westfall in the release.
The Company will compete in two additional competitions this year. Their next competition will be at Hurricane, West Virginia. on Feb. 4. Their final performance of the year will be at the Just Us concert at the Piqua High School on May 20. A number of these talented students will also be performing in this year’s high school musical, “Mamma Mia!” on March 24-25.
