May 31, Saturday
Our newly-named Annual Dinner Show (formerly Cabaret Show) at Torrey Pines Christian Church was a smashing success. An over-sold-out house was entertained by a dozen PCH songs and six chapter quartets, plus an award-winning high school quartet, 4 Men 4 Octaves, our youth chorus, Pacific Suns, and our headliner quartet, American Pastime. A marvelous menu was served buffet style.

January29, Wednesday-February 1, Saturday
International Mid-winter Convention, Long Beach, CA
Ringmasters-CBQC-2008 PCH spawned yet another first place medal in Platoon! Jimm Schumacher had a very lucky draw of the other three parts, including Roger Huffert from PAL-PAC who sings in Coast to Coast, a great baritone from Riverside Lance Alloway, and a wonderful Tenor from Colorado Springs - Greg Ramsay. Their quartet, "the Loose Chickens," won both the semifinal and final rounds. Rick Roesler's quartet placed third in the semifinals. John Rhodes, Pete Hensley, Mike Cowan, Steve Cowan, and Jim Hilgenberg
also sang very well and did PCH proud under difficult draw conditions. 139th Street Quartet acted as judges for the entire Platoon event. Jim Hilgenberg again did a super job in co-hosting this activity.
Our Youth Chorus, Pacific Suns, also stunned the judges and the audience with the strength of their sound, considering there were only 11 singers on stage. Attaining a rating of Outstanding, they sang a powerful rendition of Love Me And The World Is Mine, a jazzy and stomping Sweet Georgis Brown, and a fun Blue Moon (remember that one?), directed by Kathleen Hansen.

Pacific Suns is supported by PCH and Sun Harbor Chorus.
