Our very own The A Cappella Group were named champions of the South Saturday night at the ICHSA South Semifinal. Cypress Lake gave a very spirited performance and brought home the top award. We also won best choreography. The A Cappella Group will now represent the South at the ICHSA National Finals in New York City. The Finals will be at Lincoln Center on April 21. The International Championship of High School A Cappella South Region Semifinal featured four very strong competitors and we are very fortunate to have come out on top. George Jenkins High School Diamond Dozen started the show with a great performance. They placed third and took the award for best soloist. Diamond Dozen represented the South last year in the National Finals. They were strong again this year. Newcomers Fort Myers High School Influx gave a great vocal performance and won second place overall in their very first competition. Fort Myers also won best vocal percussion. The After School Specials from Palm Harbor University High School were also competing in their first competition. Although they did not win any awards, they were very good and highly entertaining. They will be a force to be reckoned with in the future. The A Cappella Group from Cypress Lake were not quite on their game vocally, but won over the crowd and the judge's with their enthusiasm and showmanship. It was great to see such great performances at this competition. It is also good to see new a cappella groups in our area. We also must give special thanks to The Academical Village People for being our guests for the weekend. Thanks to everyone who attended and we will see you in New York!!!
