NQC 2017: Wednesday Evening

HIGHLIGHT
NQC 2017 has been about youth as much as it has been about the past 60 years. The highlight of the Thursday evening concert was a group of five children & youth, ranging in age from 10 to 19. They sing at a fully professional level. Their name is The Chitans[1]. They won the afternoon showcase, and as a result, were invited to sing at the evening concert. I’m looking forward to hearing more from The Chitans in years to come!

HISTORY
From 1969 to the present, there has been a symbiotic relationship between the National Quartet Convention and Singing News magazine. At the 1970 convention, one could buy a year’s subscription to Singing News for just $1.00! The regular subscription rate in 1970 was $5.00 per year.
