Unplugged...the name says it all! These four talented women wow audiences with their distinctive sound, dynamic expression and delightful comedy. They came together from a variety of award-winning ensembles to form Unplugged in January 2001, and went straight to the top of the a cappella/barbershop scene in the Pacific Northwest. Teresa, Julie and Anna live in the Seattle/Tacoma area and Judy hails from Vancouver, BC, making Unplugged truly an international experience of harmony. An eight-hour round-trip drive is just a normal part of rehearsals.
Members: Julie Hagstrom, Anna Chamberlain, Judy Pozsgay, Teresa McCafferty
These four talented women, three from the Seattle area and one from Vancouver, BC, seem to be on a fast track to Sweet Adelines acclaim. They came together from a variety of award-winning ensembles to form Unplugged in January 2001, and have been wowing audiences with their distinctive sound, dynamic expression and delightful comedy ever since. Less than a year after their first rehearsal, they captured 11th place at the 2001 International competition, and in March, they ventured into the wide world of a cappella and won second place at the Pacific Northwest Harmony Sweepstakes regional. a ninth place finish at the 2002 Sweet Adelines Internationals in Nashville was followed by 6th place in 2004 in Phoenix! 16 spirited tunes, plus bonus track "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep." Some favorites: "It Ain't What You Do," the very funny "I Can Cook, Too," "Two Tickets to Georgia/Sentimental from Georgia," "It is Well With My Soul," the CASA-nominated "Somewhere Over The Rainbow," "The Moment I Say Your Eyes" and "I Love To Hear That Old Barbershop Style." Unplugged can harmonize and belt 'em with the best of them, they pick great music, and have excellent arrangements-which is why they'll be panning for Gold at next year's Internationals!
