The Sound of New England Chorus placed 1st in the small chorus division, and 5th overall, at the Sweet Adelines North Atlantic regional competition this spring in Springfield, Mass.

Fourteen choruses from Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, upstate New York, and Quebec, Canada, competed, and the competition was fierce. The Sound of New England Chorus was extremely pleased with its results and overall score.

One member, Olga Harhay, placed third as part of a new quartet, Phoenix Rising, out of 23 quartets.

This dynamic and entertaining female chorus is based in West Hartford, and rehearses at 7 p.m. every Tuesday evening in the auditorium at St. Mary Home.
