Hudson – “Women of Note,” a four-part a cappella harmony women's chorus in Hudson, traveled to Hershey, Penn., for the weekend of Nov. 11 through 13 to compete in the Harmony, Inc. International Chorus Contest against 26 other choruses from the United States and Canada.
Last year, the women placed seventh at the contest, which was hosted in St. John, New Brunswick. This year, the chorus improved its singing score and came in fifth, with 25 members on stage, taking home a gold medal.
Three different quartets made up of various Women of Note members performed in the International Quartet Contest that took place Nov. 11. One of the quartets came in fourth at the competition last year. This year, Acappella 4 was awarded the 18th spot, Songburst was 11th, and Foreign Exchange won the contest. The winners received blue-ribboned medals and “diamond” crowns, which denoted them as queens to represent Harmony, Inc. at various events for the year.
