October 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Emily Boncordo

CONGRATS to our newest Member of the Month! Christine hit the bullseye when she picked Emily as our October standout. Not only is Emily an awesome tenor, but she recently joined the choreo team, the perfect place to showcase her smiling, expressive face. Thanks Emily, we all feel that you are a great person and a real asset to Capitaland!


September 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Christine DeFilippo

Thanks to Christine for being our music librarian! For one thing, it's her responsibility to make sure that the guest musical folders are up-to-date with all our current music, which is really appreciated by Membership! She is also in the front row, where her smiling face and choreography skills really shine, and did I mention that she has been part of the visual team in the past? Christine can also often be found in the small group that does singouts, an important revenue source for Capitaland. Brava Christine, the chorus extends its thanks for all you do.

 

July-August 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Laurie Pracher

Laurie is one of those "behind-the-scenes" members who works hard in the chorus: She serves on the 2017 Management Team, is a dedicated chorus member and often volunteers for singouts, even though she must travel quite a bit to participate. Laurie always strives for excellence, both in the chorus and in her quartet, and for all these things, we'd like to recognize and thank her!


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!
