Gateway’s top vocal ensembles, Venus and Athenians, recently competed in the “Old West Choir Fest” show choir competition in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The competition featured 24 choirs from across the Midwest from Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Missouri.  After their preliminary performances, both groups received Gold ratings and advanced to the evening finals – The Best of the Fest. 

After another successful performance, Venus received a standing ovation from the judges on one of their songs and came away with the 2nd place win.  Athenians received the award for best choreography and won 1st place – Best of the Fest.  

Both ensembles worked extremely hard to prepare for this event. Congratulations Venus and Athenians!
