77New Tradition Wins Gold Medal
- Jul 9, 2001Thought you'd like to know . . . Chicagoland's own New Tradition
Chorus (Northbrook Chapter of SPEBSQSA) won the gold medal at
SPEBSQSA's International Chorus Contest this past weekend in
With 138 men onstage, we were the largest chorus in the contest, & we
finished a good 50 points ahead of the second-place contenders. Our
contest set consisted of two beautiful arrangements by our director,
Jay Giallombardo: "There's Something About a Soldier" & "There'll Be
Bluebirds Over the White Cliffs of Dover."
This accomplishment is the realization of a dream that began almost
20 years ago when the New Tradition was formed, &, understandably, we
couldn't be prouder. During our championship year, we hope to
perform for many of our friends in the Midwest a cappella community.
