Contest Stuff...

Oregon Spirit Chorus is contestant #14 (out of a total 15 competitors, plus Five Valley, who is performing "for evaluation only).  We will have 49 singers on stage (not counting your director - that's me) and will be one of the largest choruses in the contest.  Someone recently asked me who our primary competition is .... I think that would be US!  We just need to do our personal best - and that's pretty doggone great!  I would love to see us improve upon last year's score of 573... if every member can add 1 point to that score, it would be a pretty exciting outcome!  All of our previous scores are on our website under the "Vocal Resources" tab - check out how much we've improved over just 3 short competitions!

This year we will have 5 quartets (11 members) representing OSC in the contest.  Isn't that wonderful?!!  Be sure to encourage them, hug them, and let them know how proud we are that they put in the extra time to make themselves better singers & performers (which is certainly a benefit to the whole chorus)!  Three of these groups are Novice Quartets, meaning that 2 or more of them have never competed previously.  Be sure to cheer them on at the Friday night contest!
