VHC Competes on the International Stage!

November 10, 2023 - 12:17pm -- Lynn Hansen

On November 2nd, Verdugo Hills Chorus was pleased, proud, and humbled to be able to compete on the International stage at the 2023 Sweet Adelines International Chorus Competition.  We came into the contest ranked (tied for) 26th in the world and we were very pleased that we placed 22nd overall in the contest.  (In our last International contest in 2016, we placed 28th.)  We had each others' backs and we sang our plan and we improved significantly over our last outing--and we had great fun while we were doing it!

We'd love to have YOU too!  Come join the fun!

And... we're off!

Verdugo Hills Chorus has wrapped up its many months of preparation for participation in the 2023 Sweet Adelines International Chorus Competition.  This year, the competition is being held in Louisville, Kentucky, and so we're all very excited as we start packing for our journey to "Run for the Roses" in the home of the Kentucky Derby.  

On Wednesday, October 25th, we held a "friends and family" night as our final dress rehearsal before we go.  It was so much fun!  There were many tears of JOY!!

We are so grateful to all of our coaches, friends, and family members who have supported us throughout this wonderful odyssey!

We are only seeking to put on our very best performance to date on the International stage.  Please wish us luck!
