VMx Volunteers in Upstate

April 11, 2024 - 4:51pm -- Anne Elmerick

Vocal Matrix Chorus members love to give back to the communities in Greenville county and around the Upstate. One annual event - Bank of America Fall for Greenville - gives VMx that opportunity. This is the largest free admission food and music festival in the Southeast and was just named #2 in USA Today's Top 10 Best City Food Festivals.  A few days ago VMx was recognized for volunteering an impressive 960 hours during the highly successful 3-day Fall For Greenville event. Vocal Matrix is ready to sign up again for this fall  - 2024!

VMx with a 4th Place Finish In Louisville, KY

November 8, 2023 - 12:28am -- Anne Elmerick

Vocal Matrix Chorus competed in the Harmony Classic AA Division at the 75th Sweet  Adelines International Convention in Louisville Kentucky this past October 31st and came home with a 4th place finish.

The storyline (written by the chorus creative team) centers was around Angel, a young shy puppy whose master had left her at this Happy Harmony Pet Resort while she attends a singing competition.  Fifi, Ralph and DC, with the Staff/director and other pets in the resort, help Angel find the confidence to "just be Me".

The 15 minute package included the songs: Running Wild, In the Wee Small HoursThis Joint is Jumping and This is Me.
