North Pennsmen Take Second place at Division Contest in Reading!
Date Posted: Sun, May 19 2019
The Central Division Chorus and Quartet contest and Convention of the Mid-Atlantic District was held in Reading, PA this past week end and the North Pennsmen took 2nd place honors in the chorus contest (out of 12 choruses). Our very own chapter quartet, The Element, took 3rd place in the quartet contest, out of 18 quartets participating!
There was plenty to celebrate as we sang on the Parade of Champions, the Saturday evening show, alongside The Pine Barons chorus (3rd place), Taylor Made (1st place quartet), Fade To Black (2nd place quartet), The Element (3rd place quartet), Sum of Each (mixed quartet champs), Persuassion (senior quartet champs) and finaly, a spectacilar showing of our very own 3rd place International Champions, Parkside Harmony, who appeared earlier that day on the contest stage for score only. They are true champions!

It's official! The North Pennsmen will be singing 14th out of 14 Choruses at our Division convention and contest on May 18th in Reading, PA.
We'll look forward to being on stage with our fellow barbershoppers from all over the Mid-Altantic District, proudly singing the rich lyrics, rhythms and harmonies that bring us all together.
Stage time for the North Pennsmen is 12:10 PM following a well focused and energetic prep time at 11:10 AM in the 'GOOD' room at the Crowne Plaza Hotel - 1741 Papermill Rd., Reading, PA.
The public are invited to the event which will begin at 9:30 AM and tickets can be purchased on the Mid-Atlabtic event site.
Thank you to all who contributed to the success of our wonderful Spring Show - That Radio Show from the 1959!
Both Friday night and Saturday Matinee shows were well attended in our new venue, Souderton Mennonite Church. The atmosphere in the sanctuary was warm, with great accoustics, comfy bench seating and plenty of stage space for our Liberty Belles and North Pennsmen ensembles.
Our wonderful support auxiliary, the Pennettes, did a great job in the front of the house with their usual friedly greetings and homemade breads for everyone to purchase. There were plenty of Door prizes and much to look through about our rich ensemble history, all on display in the front lobby.
We will soon be preparing for our next show, our annual Christmas Extravaganza, which will be held on December 6-7 most likely at the same location, Souderton Mennonite Church. If you love to sing, now is the time to come join in on the fun, learn some songs and be part of the show!
