HOCC quartetters shine at Carolinas District competition
No Strings Attached, a youth quartet of HOCC teenage members, just returned from the NC/SC district convention and competition loaded down with trophies! NSA earned both the district’s Youth and Novice quartet championships. While they sang together in last years’ championship chorus, the four just formed their quartet last fall. A young Durham man, 16-year old Michael Adams, sang bass and anchored the winning quartet, whose other three members are all Green Hope H.S. students: lead Michael Friedrich, tenor Daniel Ramsey and baritone Adrian Lopez. Adams is the home-schooled son of Dr. Bill Adams, director of the Heart of Carolina Chorus and music educator, and his wife, Nicole, of Durham.
Four other HOCC singers competed as members of two other quartets that also advanced to the finals of the Carolinas District’s quartet championship.
