The weekend of Feb. 18 Broken Arrow’s show choirs Tiger Rhythm and Tiger Mystique competed in Kansas City, Missouri. Tiger Rhythm placed in finals and overall came in second place and Tiger Mystique won their division and performed an exhibition performance. Broken Arrow also won best vocals, best combo and Caleb Ricketts won best male soloist.
The members enjoyed the trip and the experience.
“The experience was wonderful,” junior Tiger Mystique member Hailey Scott said. “We stayed in a really beautiful hotel and got to see a large amount of great show choirs perform.”
The Show Choirs have been working hard all year in order to prepare.
“Show Choir is a lot of work but it teaches me diligence and is a lot of fun,” junior Tiger Rhythm member Noah Mebane said. “Competitions and trips are very emotionally and mentally rewarding and are the ultimate payoffs for the months of hard work.”
Competitions bring more for members than just awards and trophies.
“My favorite part of Show Choir is the ability to compete with kids from all over the United States while doing something we love,” senior Tiger Rhythm member Gentry Kincade said. It’s a very underappreciated art and the experience competition season brings is amazing.”
Although the Show Choirs placed high at this competition, they haven’t relaxed on their work ethic. The Show Choirs continue working hard this semester in order to prepare for the tough competition ahead of them.
“These competitions are probably the toughest ones we’ll compete in,” Kincade said. “They are where the larger and more established groups compete. In Oklahoma Show Choir hasn’t really caught on yet, but other states value it like we value football, so it’s going to be tough.”
Next up for the Show Choirs is competitions taking place in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Mitchell, South Dakota.
