On Friday evening, the Crescendo ladies were able to capture 7th place in a very competitive field and performed much better than their first competition!  The Dynamics tied their best ever finish at Danville placing second behind an excellent Mt. Zion group and redeeming some previous losses from our first time out to Johns Hill and Sullivan (who did not place in the top 4).  Dylan Lowe won the Outstanding Male Soloist Award as well!

On Saturday, the HS show choirs competed in a very rigorous field as well that was loaded with groups that EPG has never beaten.  The Hi Fidelity ladies took to the stage first and were able to place second behind Naperville North HS, but beat Chesterton from Indiana that we have never beaten before.  Modulations got to perform as the last group of the day and managed to slip into finals for only the second time in EPG history and were selected to perform second that night.  This allowed only about an hour and a half of recovery time and if you have seen their incredibly aerobic show, you would understand that this is not a lot!  They were 5th place heading into finals and were able to gut out another excellent performance and battle their way into 4th in finals.  We received two second place votes in finals though and 50% of the judges had us placed ahead of the 2nd and 3rd place groups, which is a very impressive feat.  On the day, Modulations defeated Bishop Luers, Chesterton, Sullivan, Pekin, and Alan B. Shepard.  The losses were to Glenwood (last year's national champions), Manteno, and Naperville North (3900 students). Congratulations Titans!

EPG once again established ourselves as a force to be reckoned with in the show choir arena!  Show Choir performed at Sauk Prairie, Wisconsin this weekend where Hi Fidelity was able to continue their divisional winnings placing first out of five solid prep groups.  Lily Blair was able to capture the Best female soloist of the day award for her solo in the ballad.  Lily was also one of our competitors in the solo competition that day and was selected out of 35 singers as the best of the day and was asked to perform at the beginning of the finals portion of the evening in exhibition!  Congrats to Lily on an outstanding and humble performance!  The Modulations were in a loaded 13 school division with nine groups that ALWAYS make the finals when they go out to compete.  They took the stage with a new found energy and were in first place overall after the preliminary round landing them comfortably in the finals (top six).  During the finals, they kicked things up another notch and ended up taking Outstanding Choreography and our second GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP of the year (and only the third in EPG history)!
