Voices got second out of 11 choruses,
Silver Lining scored higher than ever’ 

     “The Voices of the South chorus got a second place!” Director Matt Powell noted in his congratulatory email. 
     “We scored 861 points this weekend and had an average score of 71.8. That got us a second place finish out of 11 choruses in the competition. I am incredibly proud of each and everyone of you guys!” 
     Voices traveled north March 17th through the 19th to Huntsville, Ala., to compete in The Dixie District of the Barbershop Harmony Society Spring Convention and Competition
     The contest was held again this year in Huntsville’s Von Braun Center, which is adjacent to The Embassy Suites. 
     Also competing was Silver Lining, the registered quartet of the Central Alabama Chapter. The quartet competed in the preliminary on Friday night against 15 other quartets. They sang “When I fall in Love” and “Recipe for Love.” Their score of 800 points moved them into the final on Saturday night where they sang “The Second Star to the Right” and “Bare Necessities.” Earning a score of 825 points for a total score of 1,625 points and an average of 67.1 earning a seventh place finish. 
     Powell said Silver Lining’s score was the best one the quartet had ever achieved. Ed Wharton, bass; Alex Garrison, tenor; Matt Powell, baritone; and Daniel Hipps, lead; make up the quartet. 
     Powell was pleasantly surprised by the performance of the chorus. “I hope you guys realize just how much potential this chorus has to be the best in the district. I want to commend you for how well you represented us to the district. You men showed exactly what this hobby is truly about.” 
     Atlanta Vocal Project, Atlanta Metro Georgia, won the chorus contest singing “If Ever I Would Leave You” and “Come Rain Or Come Shine” . 
     The winning quartet was Category 4 out of the Atlanta area. The group sang “Lazy River” and “My Way.”
