Alberta Heartland Chorus came home in triumph with two medals from the 2015 Regional Competition. With a score of 559 they placed third in the midsize category and fourth overall. The audience was dazzled by the sparkly costume and the close harmony of the thirty-four members on stage. The Regional competition is an annual event for Region 26, this year held in Surrey BC. Sixteen choruses competed, four in the "open category". In the true spirit of Sweet Adelines every chorus was cheered and congratulated on their contest package. The judges' comments are closely studied and will form the basis of education and coaching until we do it all again...next year in Saskatoon!!!
The sounds of barbershop harmony filled the Masonic Hall in Edmonton as Alberta Heartland Chorus unveiled their 2015 contest package. An appreciative audience of family and friends applauded and praised the chorus for their hard and work and dedication to the art form. After performing the contest songs, "All the Way" (written by Sammy Cahn and arranged by Brent Graham) and "If I Love Again" (written by J.P. Murray, and arranged by Nancy Bergman and Ed Waesche), they entertained the audience further with a mixture of popular barbershop tunes.
