Join Us

Capitaland Chorus is more than just an a capella ensemble, it is a family. We love getting together each week, and sharing friendships as well as great music.

 

If you like to sing, you're invited to visit Capitaland Chorus and discover your INNER DIVA! Sitting in on one of our rehearsals is the perfect way to find out more about us, and what we can do for you!

You'll have the opportunity to hear us perform four-part, a capella harmony, and you'll be invited to join us on the risers to experience the music, friendship, and fun for which Capitaland Chorus is known!

November/December 2016 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Angela Dourdis

Capitaland Chorus had a very successful show in November, and one of the reasons things went so well was because Angela served as the show chairperson. This is a difficult task, with so many details to coordinate, but Angela made sure things ran smoothly, and she did it with grace, patience, and charm. Thanks to the efforts of Angela and many other people who volunteered their time and took over whatever needed doing, everyone was able to relax on show night and enjoy doing what we do best: singing and performing to share the joy of barbershop harmony with our audience! Thanks Angela, for being a great show chair, lead, and part of Capitaland!


October 2016 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Cheryl Chalk

In addition to being an assistant section leader for the tenors where she provides encouragement and musical leadership, Cheryl is one of those behind-the-scenes people working on special projects. Most recently, Cheryl has worked on a special event hosted by Capitaland Chorus, where local Girl Scouts and the craft of barbershop singing come together! Participants will learn and sing with Capitaland, with a unique opportunity to earn a special badge. Thanks to Cheryl for coordinating this effort and for getting the message of harmony out to our younger women!

 

Capitaland Chorus 2016 Woman of Note:

DIANE OSTRANDER

We are so proud to have Diane as a member of our chorus, and to think she has only been a member for a relatively short time! Diane was voted in as a member of Capitaland in November of 2014, but has already contributed so much! Being a Sweet Adeline for many years and having sung with River Valley Chorus, Diane is now not only a valuable member of Capitaland's lead section, but  this year took on the demanding role of CCL, Competition Chorus Liaison, which she combined with plenty of timely information and a positive outlook. Diane coordinated all of our communication regarding the 2016 regional competition, which also included hotel rooming/accommodations, no small feat! We want Diane to know that her organizational skills, willingness to help,  and  her smiling face are appreciated, and we're glad to honor you as our 2016 Woman of Note.
