Friend De Coup earned the Grand Champion, Best Band and Best Choreography awards March 6 at the Lewis Central Clash of the Titans competition in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Seventeen teams from Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska competed at the day-long event.
There are two competitions remaining on the 2021 Friend De Coup performance schedule. The group will compete at the Center Stage Invitational March 13 in Aberdeen before returning for a home performance at the Friend De Coup Classic on March 20, when the group will perform in exhibition.
The Friend De Coup Classic Competition fundraiser will feature 13 high school show choirs from South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska and Minnesota. Attendance will be limited to four vouchers per student per choir and will be virtually available to the public for viewing via livestream.
Also on the schedule for the choir is “Welcome To The Night!” a “non-dinner” dinner theater fundraiser, which is scheduled for April 8, 9 and 10. Also featured will be guest appearances by the show choirs from Mitchell Middle School and John Paul II.
Ticket information will be announced at a later date.
Proceeds from the Class and Dinner Theater events go to the Mitchell High School music program.
