coa northern div 2017The Chorus warms up before hitting the stage for the Northern Division contest at the Crowne Plaza Cherry Hill.

The Red Bank Area Chapter is a member of the Northern Division of the Mid-Atlantic District of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  On June 3, 2017, our singing group, the Chorus of the Atlantic, competed in the Northern Division Chorus Contest.

We mounted the risers at the contest in Cherry Hill with 19 men.  Our score, an average 61.1, was about what we expected.  There is always room for improvement and we had the benefit of after-contest coaching by some of the judges that scored us.  We have a skill set that is constantly improving thanks to the training available through the District and Society.

The contest results: 

Northern Division Champions: 
Most Improved - Montclair 
A Plateau - Greater Atlantic City 
AA Plateau - Morris County
AAA - Hunterdon County
AAAA - West Caldwell
