Celebrating a Stellar Competition Season

Zionsville Show Choirs made waves competing against powerhouse show choirs not just from the region but from across the nation. The Choralaires claimed the prestigious title of Grand Champion while the Royalaires secured the second runner-up position at Wheaton Warrenville South High School Choral Classic in the suburbs of Chicago. This was their first appearance at this competition.

ZSI co-directors Sam Chenoweth and Deana Broge spoke about how competitive the season was and how proud they are of both show choir groups.

“This competition was extremely competitive,” Chenoweth said. “There were 25 high school show choirs from California, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska and South Dakota competing.”

Earlier in the competition season, both groups clinched the Grand Champion titles at South Dearborn Opening Knight Showcase 2024, along with Best Vocals and Best Choreography.

At Pendleton Heights’ Arabian Spectacular, the Royalaires seized the Grand Champion title and the Best Visuals award, showcasing their impeccable performance prowess. Meanwhile, the Choralaires showcased their vocal excellence by securing the 1st runner-up position and bagging the Best Vocals award.

The Royalaires swept the competition at the Plainfield Quaker Classic Invitational, claiming the titles of Grand Champions, Best Vocals and Best Visuals, solidifying their status as a force to be reckoned with in the show choir circuit. The Choralaires put on an exceptional performance and placed second runner-up.
