We had an amazing time performing for a packed house audiance. It was so much fun to sing songs that would have been heard at Homecoming dances from our pasts. Thanks to One Voice Chorus for being our very special performing guest chorus.
Harmony Heartland Region 4 Competition
Thu, Apr 4 2019 to Sat, Apr 6 2019
Harmony Heartland Region 4 held it's annual competition in Covington, KY. One of our quartets, Cameo, placed 6th. Their performance was inspiring and the audience loved them. Our chorus performed in the open division, which means that we performed a 10 minute set. We were not competing for a chance to go to International competition. But we did receive an evaluation from the judges on one song and our overall package. Our judges comments were very complimentary with good suggestions for improvement. You can see this performance on our 'Have A Listen" page on this website.
Friends and Family Show
Sat, Mar 30 2019
Our annual Friends and Family Show was held on March 30th at Trinity Lutheran, our rehearsal home. Every year we thank those who support our musical hobby by treating them to a performance of our competition package. We perform our complete package just as we will do at competition in our full make-up and costumes. This show gives them a chance to see the results of the hours their loved ones spend learning music and choreo and countless rehearsal hours to polish our performance. Cameo also performed their competition set. We ended the performance by singing a few of our favorite songs that are not part of our package, then we treat our audience to homemade cookies. It was a fun afternoon for everyone there!
Christmas Chorus Performances
Sat, Dec 1 2018
Our Christmas Chorus ensemble visited three different Sr Living facilities to spread our Christmas cheer. We spent several hours walking the halls, stopping to sing a few songs for residents who weren't able to leave their rooms. We also performed sets in dining rooms and multi-purpose rooms where residents gathered to listen. Our favorite part of these performances is singing in the memory care units. Most of the time they are distant and and nonresponsive when we first arrive. But by the time our set is finished, they are smiling and often singing along with us. It is always heart warming and gratifying to see the smiles on their faces as they recognize these old melodies.
Nickel Plate Express Reindeer Ride
Sun, Nov 25 2018
3 Hollies and a Bari serenaded passengers on Nickel Plate Expresses Reindeer Ride. This quartet was formed from our Christmas Chorus to provide holiday entertainment on the train. The close quarters made it impossible to use the entire Christmas Chorus, but this quartet was just the right size to sing in the aisle as the riders enjoyed this fun ride. We even had some audience participation with our jingle bells! This was so much fun and we can't wait for our next opportunity to ride the rails with Nickel Plate Express!
