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!
