Thank you taking a leap and agreeing to participating in our 8th Annual Roosevelt High School Executive Showcase– the Virtual Edition show choir competition. We hope to provide an experience for your students this year that can help them grow as musicians and performers in this unusual year we are having. We pride ourselves in hospitality and will work very hard to make sure you and your students have a wonderful experience.
Registration is officially open and entries will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Friday, January 29, 2021 - All payments and video submission must be in our hands by this date to be included in the virtual event. Sunday, February 28, 2021 - Virtual event will go live and awards announced at end of program.
Performance and Video Submission
Choirs are free to present any type of performance they wish within a 25-minute time allotment. Do not exceed this limit.
We welcome all video submissions, from a basic cell phone or tablet recording to a fully produced video project, or even a virtual choir style muti-screen edited video. All are welcome to submit what you are able to produce at this time.
Feel free to be creative with sound, lighting, costuming and set – these items will not be judged in the traditional sense, but will be taken into account in additional awards.
There is no minimum or maximum number of songs a group must perform.
Middle School divisions will still be scored if a performance track is used.
To be considered for the “Best Band” Awards, instrumentalists must be comprised entirely of students from the participating schools, with the allowance of one adult, if necessary.
Awards Given for the event may include, but are not limited to:

Judges and Feedback
We had a great lineup of judges for 2021 when we planned to be in person. That being said, we know some of the people we had selected will now have groups competing due to the online nature. Once we have better grasp on who will be submitting videos to compete, we will share a finalized group of judges. All judges will provide written comments for student growth. ONE judge will provide a video with as close to a traditional critique as possible. We are aware the pandemic has placed cost/time restraints on programs across the nation. Recognizing this impact, costumes, props, and sets WILL NOT factor into scoring this year.
We are very proud to be a competition that uses the electronic Palu Tabulations scoring system. Palu Tabulations runs through Google Docs. We are going to do traditional awards for all categories – but, we will also get creative with the unusual circumstances of Covid and video production. Please get creative with your videos and submissions – the sky is the limit. We will likely group schools based on things like “iPhone video,” “Produced films,” “Virtual choirs,” etc. Updated ballot examples will be available soon.
