Bloomington’s Sound of Illinois (SOI) chorus placed (14TH) in a field of 31 international competitors at the Barbershop Harmony Society’s (BHS) chorus competition in Las Vegas, Nev., Friday (July 4). Led by Terry Ludwig, the 80-man chorus sang Old Man River and Take Me Back to Dixieland. This was the seventh consecutive year SOI represented Illinois in the competition and the 10th overall.
