History reprised itself as the WESTMINSTER CHORUS topped the AMBASSADORS OF HARMONY to capture the gold medals in the Barbershop Harmony Society's annual chorus competition.
Singing "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes" from Disney's "Cinderella" and "Seize The Day" from "Newsies," the 74-man chorus emerged at the top of 28 choruses from around the world to win its third gold medal. The last time Westminster faced the Ambassadors in 2007, the contest ended in a tie, winning on a tie-breaker. This time, Westminster earned a 97.5% score, compared with 95.6% for the Ambassadors -- itself a score that would have won in many other contests.
