In 2019, Region 15 created a new regional chorus made up of past regional quartet champions called The Blue Notes – to remember and celebrate our rich quartet history, and to recognize and mobilize the talent and experience available right here within our region.
In their inaugural year, The Blue Notes performed at the end of the regional quartet contest, while the judges' scores were tallied. Under the direction of Master Director 700 Harriette Walters, they sang The Winners Song and Best Seat in the House. Members of The Blue Notes also served as quartet guides – assisting competing quartets as they progress through the contest pattern, and offering a supportive and calming voice of experience.
We are excited for this new quartet champions program! We can't wait to see how it evolves. And we look forward to welcoming new members to the ranks at each regional contest!
