On Memorial Day weekend, The Virginians, along with many other chapters of the Southern Division of the Mid-Atlantic District, gathered together for a weekend of awesome barbershop singing! The Virginians had 5 quartets competing in the Friday night quartet contest. Forecast, who qualified to compete in the BHS International Quartet Contest coming in July 2017 at the Spring Pre-Lims contest, competed for evaluation only but led the pack of 21 quartets in this quartet contest! Three of the four other Virginians quartets scored in the top 10! We're very proud of all of our quartets: Forecast, R3P Harmony, Youth Reclamation Project, Rewind, and Four in the Morning!
The Virginians also competed in Saturday's chorus contest with 10 other choruses. We are the AAA Plateau Champions, and 2nd place winners overall in the contest with an average score of 74.8 and 53 men on the risers! In 2016, we decided to take a year off from competing to concentrate on our singing and increasing our membership. This was a very exciting weekend for the Virginians as our hard work and membership strategy paid off in spades!
