The Green Mountain Chorus took first place recently at the Regional Contest of the Northeast District of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

Choruses from Quebec, Vermont and northern NY, gathered in Albany, N.Y. for the weekend of competition, which is held every spring to determine who goes on to the district contest and eventually to the international competition.

“It was a great win for the Green Mountain Chorus,” said Greg Morrill, Director of the Green Mountain Chorus. “The guys came to sing, and they gave it their all.”

The Green Mountain Chorus took the championship title in the Mountain Division of the Northeast District. “These competitions are not only great fun, but they help us polish our singing for upcoming public events like our annual Spring Show. I’m really proud of the way they performed today,” Morrill said.

The win qualifies the Green Mountain Chorus to compete in the next level at the District contest, held in the fall in Portland, Maine.

The Green Mountain Chorus is the Burlington chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society and has been singing for 64 years. Members come from all over northern and central Vermont and Quebec.
