"The power of voices harmonizing into one intense sound fills the room with an energy that is difficult to understand and impossible to explain. They sing as one…and the result is a remarkable display of a cappella four-part harmony."

Spirit of Syracuse Chorus, Resonance Quartet, and Soundbyte Quartet place in Region 15 Contest

The Spirit of Syracuse chorus and four performing quartets traveled to Albany, NY, for competition in the Greater NY/NJ Region #15 of Sweet Adelines International. Many of us participated in the Mass Sing on the Capitol steps at 12:00 noon on Friday. Later that afternoon, our quartets took the stage at the Empire State Convention Center. Vocal Sorority, Skylark, Resonance, and Soundbyte gave terrific performances, and both Soundbyte and Resonance finished in the medals - Soundbyte in 5th and Resonance in 3rd!

On Saturday, members of the Spirit of Syracuse performed and thrilled the audience and judges, propelling them to a 2nd Place Silver Medal and their second highest regional score ever! Their score also earned them a Wild Card Invite to the 2017 International Contest in Las Vegas, NV for being amongst the top 10 highest second-place choruses in the world!  Be sure to check out our Facebook page to find out more!
