================================================= 

Capitaland Chorus of Albany, New York is an award-winning chapter in Region 15 of Sweet Adelines International. We are an all women's barbershop chorus with over 45 members of all ages, with varying interests, backgrounds and occupations, and who live and work in six counties in and around the Capital District, all of whom are dedicated to the art of four-part a cappella singing. Throughout the year, the entire chorus or smaller ensembles and quartets continue to promote our craft, performing for various community events, assisting charitable groups with fundraising, performing in our chorus show, and spreading cheer through Singing Valentines and Harmony Grams for all occasions. 

We are proud of our medalist performance at Region 15's 2017 competition: 3rd in our category (mid-size chorus) and 4th overall.  Congratulations to all of our awesome sister competitors!

Meet the Chorus

Come to the About Us section to meet the director, and find out what we're all about!

 

January 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Fran Pinto

Capitaland is proud and happy to have a dedicated member like Fran, her accomplishments are many!  Here's just a few: She chaired our big show this past November 2017, which included coordinating ad sales, organizing committees, creating & designing the show program and about a million other tasks that go with that chair's responsibility. The show's success is a testament to Fran's hard work and also to the many people who assisted her. Did I mention that Fran also blows the pitch for us in rehearsal, sings bass with her quartet "Mad Caps," and is a dual chorus member with Saratoga Soundtrack? Whew, it's hard to keep up with her, but you inspire us all to try! Many thanks Fran, for all that you do for 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!
