It felt great to join our Region 19 sisters on the contest stage again! UCC came in seventh among a talented group of competitors. Our very own member quartet, Group Therapy, won Novice Quartet honors while our Open Division comedy quartet, Quad-tet, had the audience rolling in the aisles. Congratulations to Region 19 champions, Valley Forge Chorus and Famous Janes quartet!
UCC proudly participated in the Parade of Flags on November 4th, part of the opening ceremony for the 2014 SAI convention and competition held in Baltimore, MD. The flag featuring the famous Maryland blue crab was carried by charter member Beth Rupert and Alice Bingel from UCC. Our chorus represented Region 19 in this event, coming in 22nd out of 33 choruses with a score of 1200 points.
Upper Chesapeake started International Week with a rehearsal at our Aberdeen rehearsal hall tonight! Then we're down the road to Baltimore to join thousands or our Sweet Adeline sisters for our annual convention! Special good luck wishes go out to Lustre, GQ, and Harmony Classic mic testers, Harbor City Music Company! “Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.”
Upper Chesapeake was so honored to serve during our Region 19 contest this weekend and help our fellow singing sisters through the competition pattern. Getting to see every single competitor, wish you luck and see your excitement was absolutely thrilling! We are also so grateful for your wonderful welcome and support as we sang our "bow-out" package! After two long days on our feet you all totally energized us. Congratulations to everyone for a wonderful contest. See you in Baltimore in November!
Two of our chapter quartets, "Just Sing" and "Rendezvous" attended Region 19's Singers School last weekend. They joined other regional quartets and individual singers for a weekend of high level coaching with Master Director, Sandi Wright. Both quartets had the opportunity to sing on Saturday night's Parade of Quartets show.
