CASC Star Award


The Charlotte A Cappella Show Chorus has created our own award known as the “Star” Award.  The “STAR” Award is presented to the person who the chorus members feel has faithfully and tirelessly served and worked for the good of the chorus.

 Deanna 2014

The coveted Star Award for 2016 went to Deanna Curulla.


Deanna first became a Sweet Adeline on May 10, 1986.  She spent 18 years with the Bay Area Showcase Chorus where she held numerous leadership positions including Choreographer, Competition Coordinator, Show of Champions Chair, Historian, Annual Show Chairman, Script writer and emcee.  She also served as the Region 12 Events Coordinator for several years and competed at the International level with BASC 8 times.  Deanna joined the Charlotte A Cappella Show Chorus in March of 2004.  She is first and foremost our Choreographer extraordinaire.  However, she has also held almost every Management Team position and job in the chorus at one time or another, most of them multiple times, over the past 12 years.   She has been our Retreat Chair and Competition Coordinator for 11 of those 12 years while serving on the Management Team and as choreographer.  She is currently our Management Team Coordinator, a position she has held 7 times; our Communications Coordinator; and is juggling several other smaller jobs within the chorus.
