    Region 14 Contest Results
    It's Sweet Adelines International regional contest season!  The Greater Richmond Chorus was pleased to perform at the Region 14-Heart of the Blue Ridge Contest and Convention the weekend of March 23, 2018.  We had four quartets representing the chorus on Friday, including REV'L, Whirlwind, 3 Nice Girls, and Brazen Tarts.  All performed beautifully, with REV'L bringing home second place medals as well as the Most Improved Quartet award!

    The chorus performed on Saturday, with 62 singers on the risers, placing us in the large chorus category.  It was a competitve field with so many amazing choruses!  We earned 5th place overall, bringing home green medals.  We celebrated with an amazing chorus dinner and a fun afterglow, where we heard from many quartets who came to visit as they made their rounds to all the party rooms.

    It was such a great weekend full of fun, friendships, and music!  Congratulations to Up All Night, the first place quartet, as well as Carolina Style Chorus, who earned first place overall!  We loved spending time with all our regional friends and hearing such wonderful singing.  Until next year...

    GRC Supports the Coal Pit Learning Center

    On Monday, February 26, fourteen GRC members and five guests gathered at Sedona Taphouse in Glen Allen to support The Coal Pit Learning Center - and enjoy a delicious lunch!

    We heard about this wonderful pre-school that serves underprivileged children from GRC's good friend, Patty Kruszewski, Managing Editor of “The Henrico Citizen” and long-time friend of the learning center. Patty passionately shared a brief history of the learning center and it struck a chord with Sue Hannan, who's always ready to go to bat for a worthy cause with her "Basses That Care" projects. As a result of this luncheon, the ladies of GRC will be gathering a number of things from the program's Wish List to donate to the center!  We've also been invited to personally deliver the items to the center and wrap the package with an extra special gift of song from GRC for the youngsters and staff.

    Of course, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to entertain so we sang a couple of songs to the roar of the crowd. Patty videoed us and will post it on the center's website soon! 

    We had a wonderful time simply being together spreading harmony and joy in many different ways by helping others.

    Riding the Wave from Retreat
    WOW!  Our annual chorus retreat in Virginia Beach was amazing!  After being snowed out the past two years, we were glad to spend the weekend away from distractions, focusing on our contest set for the upcoming March Regional Convention.  We were honored to have Joe Cerutti, one of barbershop's great performers and directors, as our coach for the weekend!  Currently the director of the Alexandria Harmonizers, Joe is also the Director of Outreach for the Barbershop Harmony Society and was previously the director of the Sweet Adeline's chorus Pride of Baltimore.  He is an outstanding director, choral judge, coach, and music educator as well as a dear friend of the chorus.   We absorbed all that Joe had to offer us and are riding that motivational wave all the way to Concord in March!
