Harmony Inc's Area 4 Contest and Convention (AC&C) was held the weekend of June 12-14, in Brownsburg, IN (a suburb of Indianapolis). The Glen Ellyn-based chorus, the Village Vocal Chords (VVC), came away with top honors, and earned the right to compete at the organization's international convention this fall. The contest was attended by choruses from Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, and Wisconsin. Their "sister" chorus, the Misty River Music Makers (MRMM), based in the Fox Valley area, also qualified to compete at the international level. This year's contest was set to the theme of "Start Your Engines", with quartets competing on the evening of June 12th, and choruses competing on the afternoon of June 13th. The VVCs were also well represented in the quartet competition by two of their quartets, with their own "Four Eyes" earning second place honors, and "The Karamels" earning third place. In all, four quartets qualified to compete at the international level. They will have the opportunity to travel to Verona, NY, in November to compete with other qualifying quartets and choruses from across the US and Canada.
