Alexienne Chorus 4th in contest

Members of the Alexienne Chorus did well in a regional competition recently.

The Alexienne Chorus of Alexandria (Sweet Adelines International) competed with other choruses in Region 6 at Winnipeg, Canada on May 22.

The Alexiennes are part of CanAm Region 6, which encompasses parts of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Canada.

They placed fourth in the small chorus category. This is the highest ranking they have achieved in regional competition in many years. They increased their score in every category and members were especially pleased with their scores in the showmanship category, where they showed great improvement.

If you are a woman and like to sing, you are invited to visit the Alexienne Chorus on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. They practice at First Lutheran Church, 9th and Douglas in Alexandria.
