Central Massachusetts Show Choir Festival Results
Dudley, MA
Feb 4, 2017

By Sam Bianco

The Central Massachusetts Show Choir Festival is hosted at Shepherd Hill Regional High School on the first weekend in February each year. This year, it hosted 19 competing high school choirs among three divisions: small mixed (SM), which is a mixed group consisting of less than 40 performers; unisex (US), any group that consists exclusively of boys or girls; and large mixed (LM), any mixed group of more than 40 performers. This is a common division structure in the northeast. It loosely ties to tier one and tier two competitions in the Midwest (with tier one being large mixed and tier two being small mixed).
