|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!
