Nordic Light Region #32 is a member of Sweet Adelines International, an organization for women singing barbershop. Last weekend, May 5-6, the Nordic Light Region arranged the Nordic Championships, which is competitions for quartets and choruses singing barbershop, in Karlstad, Sweden.
Friday, May 5, the competitions for quarte ts took place. 20 quartets participated in the contest and SVEA (from Stockholm) won the gold medal! Now they will go on to represent the Nordic Light Region in the International Championships in Las Vegas! We wish them good luck in the United States!
Saturday, May 6, it was time for the choruses to participate in the chorus contest. 12 choruses participated and Pearls of the Sound (from Helsingborg) won the gold medal with a fantastic show which gives them the opportunity to represent the Nordic Light Region in the International Championships too!
On Saturday evening was the Show of Champions, which was a fabulous show with all the medalists from this year. Quartets and choruses who had won medals before also participated and just entertained us. Amongst others there was Rönninge Show Chorus, who have won the world championships twice! It was a truly spectacular night.
Of course ChorusClass was there during this fantastic event. We got to talk to members from different choruses and quartets. Some of them got so interested that they downloaded our app immediately and a lot more grabbed our brochure for homestudies!
