Once again it is time for the Sweet Adelines International annual Convention and Contest. This year the event will be held in Seattle, WA on Oct 19-23. Lustre is not competing as a quartet, but all four members of Lustre will be competing with the Harbor City Music Company Show Chorus in the Harmony Classic competition for small and mid-sized choruses on Tuesday Oct 19. We can’t wait to show off our entertainment package!
Wednesday the quartet semi-finals will be held, with our good friends Capri and a.k.a. quartets returning for what is sure to be an awesome showing. Last year Capri finished in 6th place overall, and a.k.a. finished in 11th place. We can’t wait to cheer for our friends again this year!
Of course Region 19 will also be well represented by our friends MAXX Factor, last year’s 3rd place overall, and Whole ‘Lotta Harmony, former Rising Star Champions and current Region 19 champions. Out of 50 some quartets who will be competing, it’s wonderful to have friends on stage in so many quartets representing our fantastic region!
In the large size chorus semi-finals on Thursday, our friends from Greater Harrisburg Chorus will be in great form, representing Region 19.
Then on Friday we’ll be eager to see the Quartet Finals, and on Saturday the Chorus Finals. Who will win this year? We can’t wait to find out.
Don’t forget about the Young Women in Harmony Rising Star quartet contest on Saturday morning.
Wow, so much singing to take in this week!
