"WHEN YOU'RE DOWN AND OUT, LIFT UP YOUR HEAD AND
SHOUT, "IT'S GONNA BE A GREAT DAY"!
2004 Bolton Landing is a GO!!
I can not tell you how happy I am to be able to
report that this year's festival will happen over the Labor Day Weekend in the
beautiful and scenic village of Bolton Landing, NY on the shores of Lake
With a 14 tear history behind us and the
tireless efforts of the festival's Executive Committee, we have secured some
stop-gap funding from the Warren County Board of Supervisors. The county
officials have recognized the artistic value of the annual festival and have
acknowledged the festivals value to the Lake George tourist
Our job now is to show them that the festival will
continue to be supported by the a cappella community and that you, the
attendees, can make the festival a financial success as well.
This years headliner quartet is GOTCHA!, the newly
crowned 2004 International Quartet Champions of SEPSIS, Inc. They are not
scheduled to appear east of the Mississippi until November of 2005, so Bolton
Landing will be your only opportunity live in concert during their championship
reign! The top 10 finishers "Wheelhouse" (8th) and "Flipside"(6th) and
Harmony Sweepstakes Champions, "Perfect Gentlemen" lead the men's contingency.
"Swinglish Mix", 2003 Queens of Harmony from Sweet Adeline's International, lead
the ladies contingency. Friday Nights activities include "Foundation
Dinner", a celebration of the 30th Anniversary of 139th Street Quartet, and the
"Quartet Medalist Showcase" in the Harmony Dome.
Add to all of this the "Quartet Contest in the
Park", the street singing "Quartet Scavenger Hunt", an afterglow and activities
