About the performers
Frenzy is the 2017 Sweet Adelines International Quartet Champion, and three-time “Most Entertaining” Quartet award winner. These four talented women have performed all over the United States, Canada, and Germany, and entertain audiences with their distinctive sound and style. Frenzy is truly an international quartet with Anne living in the Vancouver, BC area while Nikki, Judy, and Melissa live in the Seattle, WA area. Long drives and border crossings have become a regular part of their weekend rehearsals! They are all chorus and quartet coaches and, in their “real lives”, they have day jobs in the law, financial analysis, and teaching areas.
Unistus Chamber Choir is a new group on our show! Founded in 1999 and directed by Lonnie Cline, Unistus is a select choral ensemble of musicians bound together by their commitment to promoting peace, love and harmony through the performance of various styles of music. The choir celebrates over 15 years of performing music from the Renaissance through the 21st Century in a variety of styles and languages, and has performed with much acclaim in the Portland/Metro areas as well as throughout the Pacific Northwest and internationally. The dream of Unistus Chamber Choir is to exemplify peaceful solutions to prejudice, bigotry, greed, hatred and violence through the art of singing, and we know they will be a great addition to our show.
Pride of Portland Chorus is the premiere women's a cappella chorus in the Pacific Northwest and has been on the rise since our inimitable director, Ryan Heller, took the reigns in 2001. We are perennial regional contest winners (seven times under Ryan) and have finished in the top ten at International's every year we competed but one. One of our show packages was so memorable we were invited to compete on "America's Got Talent" in 2012 and made it into the second qualifying round. The following year, Pride broke the vaunted 700 barrier to become one of a dozen choruses in the world to reach such a milestone. And, in November 2018, the chapter will venture to St. Louis, MO for the Sweet Adelines International Convention, where we hope to make another splash!
