Saratoga Soundtrack Chorus Soars with Score
On Saturday, May 19th Saratoga Soundtrack Chorus sang its way to two medals at the Greater New York/New Jersey Region 15 Annual Convention and Competition, Sweet Adelines International held in Albany. The chorus won second place in Small Chorus Division A (15-30 singing members on stage). They were also awarded the Dody O’Brien Most Improved medal by raising last year’s score by 38 points. Saratoga Soundtrack Chorus was proud to achieve this personal goal under their new director, Jennifer K. Hunter, who made her novice director entrance to the competition stage. The chorus package included the beautiful ballad “If You Love Me, Really Love Me,” by Geoffrey Parsons and Marguerite Monnot. The second song was a medley combining “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” by Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh, and “ L-O-V-E” by Bert Kaempfert and Milt Gabler. This number showcased original choreography created by the choreograph team.
