================================================= 

Capitaland Chorus of Albany, New York is an award-winning chapter in Region 15 of Sweet Adelines International. We are an all women's barbershop chorus with over 45 members of all ages, with varying interests, backgrounds and occupations, and who live and work in six counties in and around the Capital District, all of whom are dedicated to the art of four-part a cappella singing. Throughout the year, the entire chorus or smaller ensembles and quartets continue to promote our craft, performing for various community events, assisting charitable groups with fundraising, performing in our chorus show, and spreading cheer through Singing Valentines and Harmony Grams for all occasions. 

We are proud of our medalist performance at Region 15's 2017 competition: 3rd in our category (mid-size chorus) and 4th overall.  Congratulations to all of our awesome sister competitors!

April/May 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Lisa McVey

Our honoree this month, Lisa McVey, has a never-give-up, let's-get-it-done attitude that commands much respect from the chorus. Lisa willingly tackles the jobs that need her focus and does it with confidence. She has served the chorus in many roles: as a member of the management team, quartet member, show co-chair, and director search committee. Congratulations Lisa, and many thanks for all you do!


March 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Kathie Hedrick

Congratulations to Kathie, who we want to honor this month for all her hard work on the Wine and Dine for the Arts grant. Kathie's tireless work helped to procure this grant for us again this year, and we appreciate her efforts in reaching out to get Capitaland Chorus situated as an important piece of the arts here in our area. Kathie also serves as a musical leader, as an assistant section leader for the leads, and did I mention that she also sing in her own quartet called "Into Wishin' "? Many thanks Kathie, for all the hats that you wear in order to serve our chorus!


February 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Dodie Gearing

As a dedicated member of the music team, Dodie is assistant section leader for the basses. But you can also rely on Dodie to help organize guest practices and take part in auditions, providing musical guidance whenever requested. The Membership team is extremely grateful for her willingness to share in the task of moving guests along the path to full membership. Dodie also participates in many chorus singouts which are integral to both our budget and public image, and has served on numerous committees and held a variety of offices in the chorus. Thank you Dodie, for all that you do!



Capitaland Chorus 2017 Woman of Note:

MEGAN SCOLARO

Capitaland Chorus is extremely fortunate to have such a talented musical leader such as Megan. Whether she is conducting physical or vocal warmups, her enthusiasm and support inspire us all to do our very best as singers. As baritone section leader, she handled her responsibilities in the same giving, friendly way. We can count on Megan to hear and comment on the accuracy of pitch and our singing, and we often rely on her suggestions and comments for improvement. Megan makes us all smile with her own lovely voice and her singing of instructions as she conducts warmups, we love to have her direct us! Thank you Megan, for being a solid musical pillar for our chorus, we've grown and improved with your help!
