Competition

Competition is a major and fun part of the barbershop world that helps keep us focused on raising the bar of performing excellence. We come together in a spirit of lighthearted contest, to see who's really got top form. We root for each other, cheer each other on, and once the medals have been handed out, we sing and party into the night!

 

Regional

Every year in the Spring, typically in May, Capitaland Chorus competes in our regional contest. Since 2015, Region 15 has held their competition in Albany, NY (virtually "in our own backyard") and dozens of choruses and quartets come together to sing and compete. There are a number of judging categories (Sound, Music, Expression, and Showmanship), and the groups bring complete and entertaining packages. In 2017 and 2016, Capitaland came in 3rd in the mid-size chorus category, and won 4th place overall. Back in 2014, Capitaland Chorus earned our first medals in our new home, Region 15, taking 3rd place in the A chorus division. And in 2013, when we were still part of Region 16, Capitaland Chorus won the 3rd place medal in the A chorus division, and placed 12th overall out of a field of 26 choruses in the chorus competition. We've had a winning history, and we plan to keep those medals coming!

 

International

Sometime in the fall the winners of all regional contests – and a few "wildcards" – gather together at International competition. In 2014, the International Competition was held in November in the city of Baltimore. From 2015-2017, from October 5–10, the International Competition was at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. St. Louis, MO, is the site of the 2018 contest, hope to see you there!

Click here for details about the convention, found on the Sweet Adeline's International website.

 

You can view the complete contest on a live webcast on the Sweet Adelines International website. This is the ultimate female barbershop competition – not to be missed!

 

Watch the webcast of the contest and root for your favorites from your home!  Be sure to keep an eye out for our own members who make the trip to see the contest in person.

June 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Cheryl Chalk

Any chorus who has taken part in a Director search knows the hard work and careful attention to detail that the task entails. Our heartfelt thanks to Cheryl, who, not for the first time, has headed the Director Search Committee, making sure that both the candidates and the chorus have all the information needed to make sound and informed choices. We thank you Cheryl, for once again putting the interest of the chorus foremost and guiding us along the path to a promising future!


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!


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!
