Four Cheers came out of EVG. They were ...
Bob Lorenz - Tenor
Bob Swanson - Lead
Vern Emra - Bari
Bud Roberts - Bass
Their original tenor was Dean Voss, when they won the EVG District
Championship in the fall of 1977, but I believe Bob Lorenz stepped in
to sing at International in 1978.
Bob Lorenz and Vern Emra are currently very active in the leadership
of Portland Oregon's newest chapter, Portland Metro "Bridge Town
Sound", 2003 EVG DIV IV Chorus Champion. Bob is the tenor section
leader and Vern is chapter president.
Bud Roberts is the bass of the 2000 International Seniors Quartet
Champs "Overtime" and is also a member of "Bridge Town Sound".
The late great Bob Swanson passed away the morning of 9/11 ... yes,
that 9/11 ... after a valiant battle with leukemia. He was a six time
EVG District Quartet champ on lead and many time International
quartet competitor. He and his lovely wife Carol, with friends Linda
Tracy and Paul Krenz (who is the tenor of Flipside) were a fantastic
mixed quartet called "Airwaves".
You'd be hard pressed to find four nicer human beings than these
Bring it and ring it,
Director - Portland Metro "Bridge Town Sound"
