This evening was the results/awards ceremony. After feeding us a buffet meal of BBQ pork and chicken tenders, the results were announced. Here they are:
Chamber choir - GOLD! The choirs had to get 90-100 points from the three judges at yesterdays competition. They performed beautifully and had great comments and great scores from all the judges.
Chamber choir - Outstanding Choral Group of the 2016 Dallas Worldstride festival! This award was given to the choir who scored the most cumulative points from all three judges! This was among all of the participating schools regardless of division.
Chase Phillips - Ovation Award - this award is given to one student out of the 750 who performed in the festival between choirs and bands. Each director could recommend students prior to the festival who excelled in music in school and community. Out of the recommendations sent in, Chase was chosen to receive this award. Such an honor for him and for Kickapoo!
These kids have been amazing. Their talents, their attitudes, and their kindness have been recognized many times over the past few days. You should be proud of each and every one of them! They represent Kickapoo at the highest level!
Tomorrow, they will sing one last time this trip before heading home. We will see you tomorrow night.
