Somerset Hills Harmony recently competed in the annual fall contest at the Mid-Atlantic District of the Barbershop Harmony Society in Lancaster, PA, and placed 9th. This was the first district appearance as a mixed ensemble and the first time ever breaking into the top 10. 

The chorus performed two songs:

'I Walk with Music", by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer, Arr. Adam Bock
"I Love Being Here with You", by Peggy Lee, Arr. Aaron Dale

Somerset Hills Harmony drew the final performance slot of the event, which meant that all of the other competitors were in the audience along with the spectators. For many, this was their first-ever exposure to the chorus.  The crowd greeted the arrival of the group on stage with a cheer of "SHHHHHHHHH...." (our initials).
