On Saturday, January 27 Region 15 hosted Quartet Day 2024: Ramp Up to Regional. This was a new one-day event for quartets to help prepare for regional competition and/or polish their vocal and performing skills.
We gathered in person in HoHoKus, New Jersey for a day of coaching, sharing, and performing. Seven full quartets participated, as well as several partial quartets, and single singers too! (Attendees did not need to be in a competing quartet -- nor in a quartet at all -- to participate. All were welcome.) Each complete attending quartet received at least one hour of coaching (under glass for the benefit of everyone) by a regional faculty member, to support and supply helpful information for wherever each quartet is on their journey. Quartets then had the opportunity to perform at the end of the day.
This was an interactive, educational, and FUN day – building our quartet skills and quartet community!
Our gratitude goes out to all those who made this day possible, especially:
* Our Region 15 Faculty and Coaches: Alexis DePersia-Norelli, Jeanne Elmuccio, Jeannie Froelich, Jenn Hunter, and Harriette Walters
* Our Part Class Leaders: Illuminate Quartet (Alicia Caron, Becky King, Cherie LaDuke, and Jenn Hunter)
* Region 15 Education Coordinator, Jean Schoenlank — and her Just 4 compatriot, Beth Fulton
* Region 15 Quartet Coordinator, Kat Britt
Region 15 hopes to offer more events that support and celebrate quartetting -- whether for competition or for fun.
