2022 Regional Competition in Albany NY

On Saturday, May 14, 2022 Evergreen returned to the competition stage in Albany.  It was good to be on stage again and great to see many of our friends from other Region 15 Sweet Adeline choruses. 

The festivities started on Tuesday with our Friends and Family Night.

Contest weekend started with the Quartet Competition on Friday where Evergreen cheered on its very own bunch of "Special Characters"

and continued at breakfast with our newest members and their mentors participating in a little "Evergreen Trivia"

Then it was time to take the stage... but first... picture time!  Say cheese everyone!

It was a very fun weekend.  It was good to see our friends from other Region 15 Sweet Adeline choruses.  Congratulations to all of the winners!
