4th In The World!
Pride of Portland is riding high after their 4th place finish at the 2014 Sweet Adelines International in Baltimore. Wow!
They had one goal in their sights – a top five finish. Not only did they make the top five, they skyrocketed four places from their 8th ranking in Denver just two years ago.
The journey began in April of 2012 after their record-breaking performance at the last Region 24 Competition, earning the highest of any chorus in the region – 701. In fact, less than twenty choruses in the world have scored 700 or better. Pride knew it had arrived.
They built on that momentum with intensive coaching sessions, ambitious choreography, and a single-minded focus to prove they had indeed arrived, gunning for a top spot internationally.
From the moment they strode into rehearsal the week of contest until they invaded the stage for the semi-final round – placing a phenomenal third going into the finals – they were resolute, confident, and itching to share their music and change the room. There is only one way to describe it: BOOM!
