MicDrop 2017

What an amazing night!!! The first annual HVYC MicDrop event was an astounding success! Three cheers to our event coordinators: Ellyn Ito, Carrie Johnson, and Deb Zeller for a top notch evening all around. The venue at Hopewell Valley Vineyards was perfect - a relaxed, Tuscan vibe with delicious appetizers, wine and pizza. The talent that evening blew us all away with jazz classics, a capella choirs, contemporary cello, and more. The judges offered entertaining yet constructive critiques and the emcee, Graig Corveleyn, donning black tie apparel, charmed the crowd while building the evening's excitement. Congratulations to MicDrop winners: Xam, Dan Kassel, and Con Brio! And a big Woo Hoo! to Diane Gottardi and Curtis Scott, winners of the 50/50 drawing! Thanks to all our wonderful sponsors and everyone that came out to support HVYC - you rock! And for those of you who missed it, don't worry. Planning has already begun for MicDrop 2018!
