Under the direction of Patty Pennycook, the chorus has worked hard this year to ready to compete with the other groups from this large region, which covers most of California up to Canada, and includes Hawaii and part of Nevada.

AT INTERNATIONAL the singers are judged by eight certified judges, two in each of four categories: music, sound, expression and showmanship.

Since PEC won with a very high overall score, the chorus has been invited to participate in next year’s prestigious international competition being held in Louisville, Kentucky, which happens to be the director’s home town. PEC is looking forward to this exciting opportunity, and hopes to bring many new members along for the ride.
