Mojo Quartet Places 6th at International

November 24, 2008

Mojo formed in March 2006, and quickly earned a reputation as a high energy and entertaining a cappella quartet. They captured gold in their first Regional competition in 2007 and are currently the 2009 6th Place Sweet Adeline International Quartet Finalists, having achieved that distinction in November 2008 at the SAI International Contest in Hawaii. They have performed before audiences of 10,000, at corporate events, and have sung on chorus shows throughout the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia and as far north as Alaska! They bring artistry and originality to every performance, and their “Bond” and “Psychic” routines are fan favourites.

The quartet members are separated by over 175 miles and an international border, but that hasn’t stopped these determined singers. Even with busy individual schedules and a full quartet performance calendar, they still manage to regularly rehearse. And, when not on stage, the quartet members give back to the a cappella community in many ways.

Corinna Garriock (tenor) is the Associate Director of the Lions Gate Chorus (2008 SAI International 3rd place medalists), a Master Director (as former Director of Westcoast Harmony Chorus), an Arranger, Faculty for Region 26, and is a past Region 26 Education Coordinator. She is a Senior Manager with Accenture, a global consulting, technology, and outsourcing firm. Originally from the east coast of Canada, she currently lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Julie Hagstrom (lead) is an Assistant Director of the Pacific Sound Chorus (2007 SAI International Top 10 finishers), a former Director (Chehalis Valley Chorus), and serves as Faculty for Region 13. She is an Executive Home Mortgage Consultant for Wells Fargo Bank and is active in her church. She and husband Ron have 4 children, 4 cats, and 2 dogs, and live in Covington, Washington.

Patti Burklund (baritone) is a Certified Judge in the SAI Expression Category, a former Director (Sea Island Sound Chorus), a former Associate Director (Pacific Sound Chorus), and serves as Faculty for Region 13. She is enjoying early retirement as Port of Skagit County Executive Director, serves on the Board of multiple non-profits, and sings with her church’s ensemble “Spirit”. She and husband Dan live in Burlington, Washington.

Judy Pozsgay Rimple
