Meet our Director,
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.

March 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Nancy Colton
Capitaland's Team Coordinator, Nancy received kudos for her dedication to the chorus and its members. Thank you for all you do, Nancy!
November/December 2016 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Angela Dourdis
Capitaland Chorus had a very successful show in November, and one of the reasons things went so well was because Angela served as the show chairperson. This is a difficult task, with so many details to coordinate, but Angela made sure things ran smoothly, and she did it with grace, patience, and charm. Thanks to the efforts of Angela and many other people who volunteered their time and took over whatever needed doing, everyone was able to relax on show night and enjoy doing what we do best: singing and performing to share the joy of barbershop harmony with our audience! Thanks Angela, for being a great show chair, lead, and part of Capitaland!
Capitaland Chorus 2016 Woman of Note:
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.
