June 2019 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Linda Hayes

Linda continues to play a leading roles in at least two very important chorus areas: she works tirelessly to be sure we know and execute the choreography correctly, while continuing to teach us patiently and kindly. Another important area is that of costumes: Linda spends many hours researching & finding vendors that can properly outfit a chorus of ladies of various sizes and shapes; she examines materials and styles carefully; and does fittings and measurements once a costume is purchased, all in an effort to make us look our best on stage. Well Linda, we sparkle up there, and so do you! We thank you for your efforts on our behalf!


April 2019 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Joanne Bonczek

Joanne joined Capitaland after her Schenectady chorus dissolved and she immediately became a vital member of the bass section. She learns her music quickly, adds to her knowledge of "rep" songs to participate in sing outs, and is always prepared at rehearsals. For the past several years, Joanne has done a lovely job of planning and hosting chorus events such as Friend & Family nights, the annual banquet, and show and competition group events. She does everything with volunteers with no fuss or muss. She delivers and enhances all our lives. Many thanks Joanne for all your good work!

  

Capitaland Chorus 2019 Member of Note:

MEREDITH BUTLER

Congratulations to our 2019 Member of Note, Meredith Butler! 

The chorus as a whole has many reasons to be grateful to Meredith Butler, our business manager. She is very active in the financial well-being of the chorus, setting up thousands of dollars of singouts all over the capital district! On a more one-to-one basis, Meredith is kind and helpful to her riser mates, and also has been known to help smooth the way for newbies who can turn to Meredith for information on how our chorus works, how things are done, and preparing for competition. If all that isn't enough, she also schedules and periodically leads our participation in physical warm ups. Brava Meredith, you truly embody the essence of being a Sweet Adeline!
