On Saturday, August 13th, Verdugo Hills Chorus was honored to soak up the insight and direction we received from Dale Syverson. As the daughter of a barbershopper, Dale has been a part of the Sweet Adelines organization since she was a child and an official member for more than 57 years! Since 1976 she has directed the Rich Tones chorus and led them to FIVE International championships. Dale has also earned two International gold medals for her own quartet singing. We always learn so much from Dale and we are SO very grateful for her time and talent.
The Valkyries quartet has been invited to sing after the quartet finals on Friday, Sept 16th, at the Sweet Adelines International convention in Phoenix!!! We are so excited for all their many successes—and we know they have a great future ahead of them!
Verdugo Hills Chorus is proud to announce that we won our regional chorus competition, held in Bakersfield on April 9th. We were first in our division of mid-sized choruses, first overall, and most improved! We are very grateful to all of our family and friends for their support for all of our efforts.
