The Boy Who Cried, “Woof!”
A Grindr Love Story
So my a cappella group which won 4th place at the final round of ICCA last year got somewhere between 5th-9th place at the quarterfinal round this year.
There’s a random draw for performance order and we went first. During sound check, our Music Director noticed he could barely hear us and asked if the mics could be turned up a lot but was told they couldn’t change anything. Fine, we can just do our best to get as close to the mics as possible since every other group is going to have to deal with the same thing.
We perform. People barely hear us. Second group performs. Suddenly the mics are 2-4 times louder and they are heard loud and clear. Same for third, fourth, so on. No one says anything. Not the sound engineers, not the judges, not the event coordinator. Our friends and family in the crowd frantically text us the entire night because they are fuming with anger.
Awards ceremony comes up, we receive nothing. Read our judging sheets, it’s literally like they didn’t hear our set at all. One commented on a non-existent rap. One said we should be having more fun when we were presenting images of depression and abuse. We left as quickly as we could and didn’t say anything to anyone.
Who knows, maybe we just sounded THAT bad after getting second place at a huge competition last semester and winning this round of competition for the past two years. Either way, this is a lesson for me that sometimes people just do not care at all about what they do and that I can’t be so afraid of doing or saying something about it. It’s going to be an interesting week.
