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. 

 


Capitaland Chorus is thrilled to have placed 6th overall at our 2019 Regional Competition!

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!


March 2019 Sweet Adeline of the Month: 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!

 

February 2019 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Sherri Strichman

Audie has passed along the coveted monthly medal to Sherri, because in the short time Sherri has been with Capitaland, her sunny disposition and musical talents have been a great asset to us. She steps right in when asked to assist with physical and vocal warmups, as well as the often not-so-easy task of blowing the pitch. Sherri always has a postive and caring nature; she is certainly a valuable member of Capitaland Chorus and we thank her for contributions! Way to go Sherri!

  

Capitaland Chorus 2018 Woman of Note:

CAROL STEARNS

Carol has worn so many hats during her time in Capitaland Chorus that it's hard to know where to begin. She often works behind the scenes, for example, she served on the Board for many years, acted as Secretary, is an important part of the Membership Team where she acts as Membership Chair for part of the year. In addition, she is welcoming to all visitors, and most recently, arranged the installation ceremony for the 2018 Management Team. The list goes on, but we want Carol to know that she is much loved and appreciated, and congratulations on this honor!
