Friend de Coup Makes a Clean Sweep with Unprecedented Undefeated Season
Friend de Coup performs its grand champion set in the Mitchell Performing arts Center.
Though it had already taken top honors at Washington High School (SF), Lewis Central, Vermillion, and Aberdeen, one competition still remained heading into last weekend. And that competition was an unknown—the 2021 Show Choir Live Virtual Competition on April 10. Twenty-eight show choirs, including choirs from Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin and South Dakota performed virtually but live for a national panel of judges. At the end of the very long day, Friend de Coup was named Grand Champion, winning the first-ever competition and completing an undefeated season, the first ever even for the storied show choir program at Mitchel High School. In addition to the sweepstakes victories, the program also received awards for best choreography, best band, best vocals, best show design, and best soloists.
