All over the globe, Sweet Adelines International choruses are joining together to teach the world to sing. Women of all ages (teens to seniors) who enjoy singing are invited to Sierra Gold Chorus’ open house at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23, at Burback Hall, DeWitt Center, 11577 E Ave.
Sierra Gold Chorus is the local chapter of Sweet Adelines International, an organization of nearly 25,000 women worldwide who sing four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop style.
Sierra Gold Chorus members from Placer, Nevada and Sacramento counties share a love for music and singing barbershop harmony. As a member, you too can experience the exhilaration of performing and singing with the chorus. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range with the help of the chorus’ musical leaders and directors.
The Sierra Gold Chorus performs regularly throughout the community, offering its talent for entertainment at civic events, county fairs and charitable functions. Sierra Gold Chorus recently entertained hundreds of people at the annual Christmas shows in Nevada City and Auburn and will be preparing for the April Regional competition in Reno, Nev.
