Meet our Director,

Bill Stauffer

 

 

Capitaland Chorus is proud to introduce our new Director, Bill Stauffer.  Bill has the energy, commitment, and enthusiasm for barbershop singing and is ready to lead us into the future!

 

Barbershop music has been in Bill Stauffer’s ears since he was a baby. From his grandfather, mother, aunts and uncles harmonizing around the kitchen table, to the sounds of The Buffalo Bills and The Orphans buzzing out of the family Hi-Fi (ask your parents, kids), his love of the art form was virtually guaranteed. Bill has had the distinct privilege of singing, directing, coaching, teaching, and arranging barbershop music for over thirty years. And now, as the father of eleven-year-old twins, he is sharing his love of the hobby with his son and daughter, who have been enthralled with the great quartets ever since they could swipe and operate dad’s iPod.

 

A music educator by training, and a freelance musician by trade, Bill is thrilled to be the Musical Director of the award winning Capitaland Chorus! He looks forward to making music and touching hearts for many years to come.

Meet the Chorus

Come to the About Us section to meet the director, and find out what we're all about!


May/June 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Isabel Pickett

Videographer Extraordinaire, we'd like to thank Isie for her talents, and to acknowledge the tremendous amount of work that this job entails: bringing and setting up the camera each week to record our rehearsals; editing them into manageable bits; and then making sure there's a working link to be shared so every member has access to these fabulous learning tools! Coaching sessions or other extra rehearsals are also covered. Isie is also extremely active in singouts, is a helpful and active member of the Tenor community and handles elements of the chorus website as well.  Thanks very much, Isie, Capitaland is truly appreciative of your contributions!


April 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Lin Smith

Recognized for the various ways she has contributed to Capitaland over the years, Lin is very deserving of our thanks.  Having served many years as the immediate past Treasurer, Lin kept impeccible records and performed those duties discreetly.  Lin is energetic as she lead the chorus in physical warmups, and can be relied upon to help any and all, whenever needed.  You are truly special, Lin.  Thank you! 


Capitaland Chorus 2016 Woman of Note:

DIANE OSTRANDER

We are so proud to have Diane as a member of our chorus, and to think she has only been a member for a relatively short time! Diane was voted in as a member of Capitaland in November of 2014, but has already contributed so much! Being a Sweet Adeline for many years and having sung with River Valley Chorus, Diane is now not only a valuable member of Capitaland's lead section, but  this year took on the demanding role of CCL, Competition Chorus Liaison, which she combined with plenty of timely information and a positive outlook. Diane coordinated all of our communication regarding the 2016 regional competition, which also included hotel rooming/accommodations, no small feat! We want Diane to know that her organizational skills, willingness to help,  and  her smiling face are appreciated, and we're glad to honor you as our 2016 Woman of Note.
