Alaska A Cappella Chorus ranks 14th in the world!
Alaska Sound Celebration Chorus is proud to announce it is now ranked 14th out of about 600 Sweet Adelines women's a cappella singing groups on the planet!
The Anchorage-based, four-part harmony chorus of 70+ women competed with 67 voices on the international stage in Honolulu on November 7th against 33 other regional winners from across the globe, including choruses from Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Canada, and the United States.
"Alaska was very well represented at this competition,” Alaska Sound Celebration Director Peggy Benton said. “I was so proud of our singers. Each year we score higher and the International audience expects a great performance from ASC each time. Despite our isolation, great a cappella singing is alive and well in Alaska.
Alaska Sound Celebration is now gearing up for its 24th Fur Rondy Melodrama at the Snow Goose Theatre Feb. 21 to March 8 and the Sweet Adelines Regional Contest in Spokane in April 2014.
The group is always looking for new singers. They meet every Tuesday night at Wayland Baptist University on Muldoon from 6:30 to 9:30. For more information, go to www.alaskasoundcelebration.org or call 566-3987.
