Greater Harmony Chorus sponsored two Young Women in Harmony quartets this year, and both competed at the Region 17 Rising Star Competition this past weekend in Huron, Ohio. We are proud to announce that the quartets took second and third place!
Showing off their red second place ribbons left to right are members of Here Comes Treble, Hannah Clifford (tenor from Slippery Rock University), Catriona Reynolds (lead from Knoch High School), Ariel Clifford (bass from Westminster College), and Maeve Hendricks (baritone from Pennsylvania State University).
Second Place Winners, Here Comes Treble
Wearing their white third place ribbons from Seneca Valley High School are members of Dotted Quarters from left to right, Madison Lopiccolo (tenor), Lauren Ottavaiani (lead), Samantha Tedrow (bass), and Hayley Hoss (baritone). Both quartets were coached by members of Greater Harmony Chorus. Lynn Ross of Gibsonia, a member of Greater Harmony for 35 years, coached Here Comes Treble; Jennifer Fogle of Verona, a Sweet Adeline for 40 years, coached Dotted Quarters.

Young Women in Harmony is a program started by Sweet Adelines to teach the art of a cappella barbershop singing to young women ages 13 to 25 with opportunities for them to participate in educational weekends, as well as singing in choruses and quartets. YWIH quartets that compete in the annual Rising Star Competition and place first in their region have the opportunity to compete at the international level with quartets from all around the world.
