From Director James Reddan, July 21

We have made it home safe and sound and I have the final results for the other two categories to share. 

Results of our first category, 8th World Choir Games:

Open Competition
Category 17 - Musica Sacra A cappella

Gold Diploma Level 3
2nd Place in the World
Linn-Benton Community College Re-Choired Element Chamber Choir
New Qualification: The Champions Competition
(There was less than a point between us and 1st place!)

Open Competition
Category 8 - Mixed Chamber Choirs

Gold Diploma Level 6
1st Place - World Champions
Linn-Benton Community College Re-Choired Element Chamber Choir
New Qualification: World Champions of the Open Competition Category 8
                                The Champions Competition

This was also the 2nd highest score of the entire Open Competition regardless of category!

Category 20 - Musica Contemporanea

Silver Diploma Level 10
4th Place
Linn-Benton Community College Concert Choir
New Qualification: The Champions Competition

Thank you all so much for all of your support.  The students learned so much from this experience and this was truly the opportunity of a lifetime for all of us!

What an amazing opportunity to share our common bond of music and singing together with over 27,000 singers from 73 countries and over 500 choirs from around the world!
