5 Groups To Watch At The 2017 Harmony, Inc. IC&C

Harmony, Inc. is streaming its 2017 International Convention and Contests for the first time next week on FloVoice!

Altogether, there are over 50 groups competing over the course of our four days of coverage from Nov. 1-4 in Halifax, Canada.

Here are 5 groups to watch at the 2017 Harmony, Inc. IC&C

1. LowKey Quartet

Last year's silver medalist quartet hails from Albuquerque, NM. They've only been around a year or so and cleared the International Contest qualifying score of 804 by 111 points to win the Area 4 Quartet Finals in Bloomington, IL.  

Will LowKey take the gold this year?

2. Northern Blend Chorus

Northern Blend's second piece at the 2017 AC&C, "Cheer Up, Charlie," garnered the highest scores across all three categories at the Area 3 Chorus Finals with a 166 in music, 158 for performance, and a 166 in singing (15 points higher than any other competitor).  

Not surprisingly, NBC took home the Area 3 first-place trophy by a monstrous 81-point margin! After Northern Blend came in second place at the 2016 IC&C by 21 points, how will the group finish this year?

3. Charisma Quartet

Charisma came in fourth place at the 2016 IC&C in Providence, RI. This year, the highly ranked group took the Area 3 C&C by 20 points and also captured the Aspire Award.

4. Village Vocal Chords Chorus

With a set change and a costume change at the 2015 IC&C Chorus Finals in Verona, NY, (a first for Harmony, Inc.) Village Vocal Chords won their 20th Championship with a "Wizard of Oz" package that went from black and white to color. At this year's AC&C, VVC took home the Area 4 first-place trophy by a margin of 57 points. 

Village Vocal Chords have only had three directors in over 50 years of being chartered with Harmony, Inc. They have been undefeated for over 30 years! Will the streak continue?

5. Minor Chords

Now for something completely different! At each IC&C, Harmony's youth members (25 and younger) assemble to create that year's Minor Chords under a new director to perform at the President's Reception after the Chorus Finals on Saturday afternoon.

Last year's director was Christina Tramack of outgoing Harmony Queens Taken 4 Granite. This year, Lexi Conway (of Northern Blend), a 21-year-old senior at Syracuse University, will be directing Minor Chords.
