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!

December 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Nancy Webber

There are always so many people to thank who work behind the scenes to make a successful chorus event, and the December Member of the Month is one such chorus member. Nancy Webber wrote a lively and interesting script for our Holiday Cabaret Show. Her research into the background of the songs and the time periods really paid off, as the narration in the show was entertaining, and left the audience wanting to know more! Nancy helped out with other aspects of the show as well, but we want to especially thank her for creating that wonderful script. Kudos Nancy, great job!

 

November 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Theresa Carreiro Moloney

Keeping the Member of the Month award in the" lead family," Nancy passed it along to Theresa Carreiro Moloney, who has been working very hard in helping out with the upcoming November chorus cabaret show. Theresa is organizing all the ads for the show, keeping track of what goes where, and what has been paid. We appreciate her willingness to take on this job, and other tasks that she has volunteered to do. I mentioned that Theresa is also a valued member of the lead section, where she'll also be a contributor to the wonderful Capitaland Chorus sound that will be evident in the show! Thanks again Theresa, for stepping up! 

 

October 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Nancy Plaat

Heather made a great choice in our newest member of the month by choosing Nancy Plaat. Nancy is a longtime Capitaland member, and continues her service in many ways. She recently agreed to function as our financial officer, keeping track of all our dues, assessments, and anything else that comes up; few people want that job, so thank you Nancy for stepping up! Nancy also organizes our small groups for sing outs, making sure there are enough voice parts and that the sound is balanced. Also, she serves on show and afterglow committees, and sings lead in both the chorus and in her quartet, Mad Caps. Always busy,  but always willing to pitch in, thanks for all you do Nancy!

 

 

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!
