The seven finalist groups, whittled down from 40 entries, were chosen based on a combination of judges’ scores and viewers’ online and phoned-in votes. The group from Kurn Hattin was named a “Voter Favorite,” and will perform in the Together in Song Regional Choral Awards finale show, to be broadcast live from WGBY’s studios in Springfield, MA, on Sunday, April 27 at 7PM.
For their competition performance, which aired March 22 on WGBY, the 40-member ensemble from Kurn Hattin performed the Vermont state song, “These Green Hills,” and “We Shall Overcome,” a tribute to the late Pete Seeger.
Last year the Kurn Hattin Select Choir, directed by Grammy-nominated music director, Lisa Bianconi, was the first Vermont chorus selected for the show and took the “Top Performer,” award in the children’s Gospel category. This year they were again the only group from Vermont.
