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!

May/June 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Isabel Pickett

Videographer Extraordinaire, we'd like to thank Isie for her talents, and to acknowledge the tremendous amount of work that this job entails: bringing and setting up the camera each week to record our rehearsals; editing them into manageable bits; and then making sure there's a working link to be shared so every member has access to these fabulous learning tools! Coaching sessions or other extra rehearsals are also covered. Isie is also extremely active in singouts, is a helpful and active member of the Tenor community and handles elements of the chorus website as well.  Thanks very much, Isie, Capitaland is truly appreciative of your contributions!


April 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Lin Smith

Recognized for the various ways she has contributed to Capitaland over the years, Lin is very deserving of our thanks.  Having served many years as the immediate past Treasurer, Lin kept impeccible records and performed those duties discreetly.  Lin is energetic as she lead the chorus in physical warmups, and can be relied upon to help any and all, whenever needed.  You are truly special, Lin.  Thank you! 


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.
