[from the HOT SHEET]  Twenty-three men in blue took to the risers Monday [9/17] night as the General Assembly Chorus performed for an appreciative audience at Searstone Retirement Community.

Under the direction of Larry Triplett, the chorus opened the set with No, No, Nora from the spring repertoire, followed by the Irving Berlin classic Cheek to Cheek and the Randy Newman tune, I Will Go Sailing No More.

Never Home 4 quartet followed with Chances Are and Zippity-Doo-Dah where, once again, thanks to Bill Andrusic, Mr. Bluebird disappeared in a cloud of feathers.

[HOT SHEET, May 15, 2018] Our 2018 Spring Show took place on Saturday, May 12 at the Cary Arts Center. The General Assembly Chorus opened the show, augmented by a dozen or so members of the NC Harmony Brigade.
 
After the chorus presented a set of a half-dozen numbers from the Harmony Brigade repertoire, the headliner quartets, Pratt Street Power and the Ladies, presented a variety of quartet, mixed quartet, and 8-voice ensemble numbers, featuring both barbershop and jazz harmonies.

FERN'S BIOGRAPHY

The Heart of Carolina Chorus benefit concert for No Strings Attached was a huge success. No Strings Attached, a youth quartet with members ranging in age from 15-17, is our district's youth champions, and they qualified to compete on the International stage in Nashville, Tennessee this summer.  See their competition set at www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jsq5ukIbHc.  We wish them success at Nashville this summer.
