  • The 1953 International Chorus Contest is distinguished from all those after it because it was by invitation of the choruses' District Presidents and not necessarily in District Competitions so the Grand Rapids Great Lakes Chorus was awarded the title 1953 International 'Convention' Championship Chorus, with the "convention" annotation to separate that contest from future contests. The trophy, and the title "International Chorus Champions" were awarded for the first time in 1954. More information here.
