|We’re so proud of our director, Vera Crouse, and her quartet Rendezvous for earning a second place medal during the 2017 Rising Star Quartet Contest! Held as a part of the weekend-long Sweet Adelines International Education Symposium in Baltimore, Rendezvous competed against 12 other quartets from all over the country. To be eligible to compete in this special contest, all members of the quartet must be under the age of 25 and perform a contest set consisting of two songs, one ballad and one uptune. Scoring followed the same guidelines as regional and international competitions. There were many GRC members and sisters from all over Region 14- Heart of the Blue Ridge in attendance to cheer them on in person, as well as many others rooting for them while watching the webcast. They even got to meet Deke Sharon! Congratulations to Vera and Rendezvous for an outstanding performance!
