Divas and Desserts 2020

March 7, 2020 - 2:00pm -- Pat Vincent

 

What could be better than sweet singing and sweet desserts?  Doing it with Verdugo Hills Chorus, that's what!

Our Divas and Desserts event happens every year, and 2020 is no exception!  This event gives quartets who are competing in the upcoming Regional Contest a chance to strut their stuff.  But wait! It gets better!  The Verdugo Hills Chorus performs their vocal package not once but twice to an enthusiastic audience of friends and family. 

After all the music, the happy crowd gets to enjoy the delicious homemade treats with their favorite hot beverages.  A full and satisfying afternoon for one and all.

Singing Valentines 2020

February 15, 2020 - 4:40pm -- Pat Vincent

 

“Love makes the world go ‘round” and Verdugo was out there spreading love this past Valentines Day! Six of our chorus quartets traveled all over the area singing for souls of all ages....18 to 88!

Some of our members say that this is their favorite fundraiser.  What could be more fun than surprising unsuspecting friends and lovers with a song?  There were smiles of gratitude and there were tears of joy.  A most wonderful time of the year!

Divas and Desserts 2019

March 30, 2019 - 2:00pm -- Pat Vincent

 

Well, Verdugo Hills Chorus has done it again:  another successful Divas and Desserts!  This yearly event gives our chorus and quartets across the region and beyond a chance to strut their stuff.

On March 30th, in Burbank, CA, representing 5 choruses, 7 quartets performed to an enthusiastic and standing room only crowd.  Not only did Verdugo Hills Chorus showcase their competitive package TWICE, but they thrilled their fans with two of their newer songs.

The chorus and most of the performing quartets will be competing in this year's regional contests.  To give the performers a taste of the real thing, there were four judges who gave each group some encouragement and helpful tips.  The goal of all:  give it your best shot!

Girl's Night Out

February 27, 2019 - 12:45pm -- Pat Vincent

 

Yee haw!  Was it a Girls Night Out or what?  Last Wednesday, the sizzlin' Verdugo Hills Chorus opened their doors and arms to receive a baker's dozen of guests and it turned out to be hot, hot, hot!

Pure and simple, we were there to party!  Quartets sang and chords rang! 

Guests and members alike learned the heel clicking, boot stomping song "Girls Night Out" and, after a bit of sectional work, came back together and rocked the hall!!

Snacks? Of course!  What's a party without snacks?  All in all, it was a rip roaring ball!

Who doesn't love LOVE?

To help spread love this year, Verdugo Hills Chorus formed quartets who fanned out over the entire greater Los Angeles area for in-person delivery of Singing Valentines, as well as delivering Singing Valentines via phone calls to recipients across the country, from Coast to Coast! This year there were six hard working quartets: Valentones, BBnJ, Precious Gems, Ransom Notes, Heart Throbs, and Hot Topic….

New Members 2018

December 2, 2018 - 11:39am -- Pat Vincent

Verdugo Hills Chorus couldn’t be more excited about the fourteen new members who have walked through our door since last January. They range in age from 16-65 and every one of them is musically talented. Their energy is contagious. They are the perfect way for our chorus to bring in a new year.

Under the direction of Tammy Ragsdale, Verdugo Hills Chorus enjoyed performing in Glendale at our own Harvest Harmony Show. The theme was Harmony Chef of America.
