No matter how fierce the competition in a given year, the judges may only name one chorus as Champions. Many wonderful choruses have risen into the medals and out of circulation, having never won the gold.

The most recent Medalist choruses are listed first. These are the most likely to still be active and competitive, and to become champions in the future. All sources are cited in the "External Links" section.
