A new Region 12 venue in Sparks, Nevada! The stage was set for a bounty of talent representing Pacific Empire Chorus. At Friday’s Quartet Competition, PEC had five foursomes singing and strutting their stuff. There were first timers Vocal Ventures and Shine who dazzled us with their new selections. Dressed as nuns, the Stevens Sisters led us on a MISSION to find new Sweet Adeline members, giving us many laughs along the way. Surprise! took home 3rd place honors with their sweet harmonies and vibrant showmanship. And Pdq delighted us with their hilarious Parisian restaurant revue which snagged them 1st place in the Open Division. On Saturday, we all came together to channel our inner divas, getting in character for our sparkling new uptune and beautiful heartfelt ballad. Makeup applied, eyelashes firmly in place, and costumes pressed to perfection we took the stage and sang our hearts out. With months of rehearsals and coaching sessions (thank you Sandy Marron, Judy Pozsgay, and Joe Connelly) we once again took home the gold in the midsized division and 3rd place overall. But medals aside, the real reward of attending our annual Regional contest comes from the fun times shared, the friendships renewed, and the unadulterated joy of singing!
