Chorus to spread 'A Cappella Fever'
Piney Hills Harmony will join with Bayou Blend quartet from Monroe and River Cities Jubilee men's chorus of Shreveport to present "A Cappella Fever" at 7 p.m. Nov. 5 in the historic Dixie Center for the Arts in downtown Ruston.
"This will be a special evening of music and laughter," said Sheila Nugent, Piney Hills Harmony director. "As far as I know, this is the first time a cappella barbershop groups from across the entire span of North Louisiana have performed in the same show."
Ruston's Piney Hills Harmony Chorus was presented the Membership Growth Award at its regional competition held in Houston during the spring of 2016, along with a citation for its marketing achievements.
The singers also improved their competition score by 25 points over last year's results.
Piney Hills Harmony is a women's a cappella group that's part of the world's largest singing organization for women, Sweet Adelines International.
During 2015-2016 the chorus added 13 new members, and with attrition factored in, the increase came to approximately 25 percent. Six of those new members were from North Louisiana, and seven were from the Texarkana, Texas, area. Those seven joined as dual members.
