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….

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.

We invited middle schools and high schools from all over the LA County area to compete with two acappella songs. This year, 14 schools shared their vocal talents with each other. Thanks to a generous grant from the John C. Hench Foundation, all schools left with significant cash awards for their schools’ vocal programs.
