Congratulations 2014 Evergreen District Champions!
Congratulations to Northwest Sound for coming in 1st place at the 2014 Evergreen District Convention in Surrey, B.C. Canada on September 27th 2014! A lot of great effort went into preparing for the competition this year, and the hard work paid off. The chorus performed “I Will” as their contest ballad, followed by their new up-tune “Barbershop Contest Number”, which were met with a standing ovation. The guys are very thankful for the hard work and love of their director, Donny, as well as their performance director Amy Rose, and all the guest coaches that helped them to prepare for this fantastic contest. If you’d like to check the scores, here they are: Official Scoring Summary.
Many of the guys expressed appreciation for an enduring moment they shared during rehearsal – they stepped outside to sing (and cool off!), and it all came together on this little balcony – their tone, emotion, harmony, and passion for singing – in a way that touched their souls. It was a perfect lead in to sharing their love with the audience on stage that night.
There was also a moment of elation and bittersweet joy during the show of champions when the group performed for the last time with Donny Rose on stage as director since he is moving on to be the Director of the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Harmony University in Nashville. The chapter is truly excited for Donny and Amy in their next adventure. No one will ever forget the beautiful moments of art, harmony, and love that were shared by Northwest Sound in Surrey this year. Many thanks to the families and friends that allowed the group to pursue their passion for singing!
