The exciting, talented and award-winning women’s a cappella chorus located right here in Petaluma, did it again! On May 6, 2023, Pacific Empire Chorus PEC won the Pacific Shores Region 12 Competition of Sweet Adelines International, held in Reno, Nevada. In 2019, PEC won the regional contest and qualified to go to the Sweet Adelines International Competition in the fall of 2020.  However, Covid shut everything down and cancelled contests for two years. After almost a year of Zoom rehearsals in 2020, followed by outdoor rehearsals, indoor rehearsals in masks and spacing 6 feet apart to sing in 2021, PEC started meeting live again in March 2022. With the help of high energy rehearsals and guest expert coaches in 2023, PEC is thrilled to have won the contest and is so excited to be back on track! Since PEC’s thrilling performance in Reno over the weekend, PEC has been invited to compete at Sweet Adelines International Competition and Convention in the fall of 2024 in Kansas City, Missouri!
