Cadence juniors stole the show at the Chicagoland Showcase Show Choir competition at John Hersey High School. While the group itself didn’t place, two juniors won awards.

Ethan Lagman received “Outstanding Performer” out of all of the members in Carmel’s show choir. Ethan also received first runner up for the “Outstanding Performer” award at the Naperville North “Clash of the Sequins” event, held February 18 in Naperville.

“Being an outstanding performer requires a person to be one with the music,” junior Ethan Lagman said. “If you don’t have a connection with the song in some way, then your performance won’t be great.”

Carmel Cadence members also had an opportunity to compete in a solo competition at the high school. Eight Cadence members competed with 80 other singers at the competition. A female singer from Carmel Catholic stood out.

Phoebe Paslaski, who sang “One Perfect Moment” from Bring It On, the Musical, tied for first place for best female vocal soloist. Paslaski was awarded a scholarship to attend a show choir camp, a trophy and medal, and a private vocal lesson.

“I worked super hard and I’m glad it paid off,” Paslaski said. “I’m so excited for show choir camp and the opportunity to go there. I will get to learn so much more at camp to bring back to the group next year.”

While Cadence did not make it to finals at any of their competitions this season, the group had a very successful season up against many competitive choirs. Cadence’s next performance will be on May 11th at 7 pm in the Carmel auditorium.
