A Spectacular Beginning!

Summer Spectacular was just that and ALL THAT MORE too!

Shirley Kout, International Judge/musician extraordinaire and her team, Gwen Marks, Bonnie Garlow, Sherry Rowe, Leah Brooks and Kevran Day, presented Region 12 with a weekend of superb education, singing and friendship!

The occasion was developed to mark the merging of seven choruses from the former Region 24 into the existing Region 12 geographical area. Region 12 now has 24 chapters!

What really happened was fantastic singing and joyous friend-making. 245 women came together in the 112 degree Redding heat at Simpson University to enjoy the wisdom of BUZZ baritone and former IBOD President, Karen Breidert and Judy Pozsgay, choreographer of the most excellent Lions Gate Chorus. Special treats were the jaw-dropping performances by LoveNotes and FlipSide throughout the weekend.

Chapter members brought scrapbook-like Tri-folds that were on display in the auditorium. We enjoyed seeing pictures and learning about each chorus in the newly expanded Region 12. Such talent in our new region! The boards were fun displays with lots of chorus information.

All attendees were assigned to sing "My Romance" and "I Believe in Music" in either the Blue Chorus or the Red Chorus. Under the direction of Kathy Scheel, Director of Oregon Spirit Chorus, and Martha Segura, Director of Southern Oregon Sound/Northern Gateway (Harmony Classic Bound 2013), both choruses prepared an entertaining package of songs quickly came together and performed for each other on Sunday morning.

What a great way to welcome our Oregon chorus members and share the love!
