After much anticipation, our press release has arrived fashionably late - a delay that only amplifies the excitement and showcases our newest and most elegant costumes. Good news, after all, has its own rhythm, and ours has crescendoed to a triumphant note! Drumroll, please! Behold the digital snapshot capturing that unforgettable day when A Cappella Showcase clinched the First Place title at Harmony Inc.’s annual International Convention and Contest in Grand Rapids, Michigan from November 8 - 11, earning them the prestigious 2023 International Gold Medal Chorus award. Let the harmony of victory resonate!

With "Pure Harmony" as last year's theme, 29 choruses from Canada and the U.S. crossed the stage and performed their two contest songs before a very enthusiastic audience and a highly skilled panel of judges. 

Under the umbrella organization of Harmony, Inc., an international organization of women singers, and directed by Jordan Travis and Associate Director, Amy Patterson, A Cappella Showcase consists of 78 singing members of which 62 sang at the contest and brought home Gold Medals. The chorus also has 5 competitive quartets who performed and achieved remarkable scores. 

The chorus credits and sincerely thanks their phenomenal Chorus Director, Associate Director, Section Leads and Choreographers for their unwavering dedication and commitment. They are also very grateful for the additional coaching sessions received from Patrick Brown and Cindy Hansen, two very knowledgeable and highly entertaining instructors. 

Not only was it wonderful to reunite with our harmony friends from both countries, it also served as a reminder that singing keeps us young, healthy and happy. After all, if a worldwide pandemic can’t keep us apart, nothing ever will!

A Cappella Showcase won Gold with their performance of "When I Fall In Love" and "On A Wonderful Day Like Today", two amazing songs which they also performed at their Holiday Spectacular in early December, another huge success!

Want to experience the joy of singing four-part a cappella harmony with a Gold winning, friendly and highly entertaining chorus? Just email our membership team at to learn more on how to book your spot on our risers!
