Becoming a Member of Capitaland Chorus and Sweet Adelines International
 
The AuditionBarbershop harmony consists of four voice parts: Lead, Baritone, Tenor and Bass.  A prospective member is “voice-placed” either at or after the first visit to determine which part she is most suited to sing.  She will then be given an electronic audio file and sheet music with a current song from our repertoire to learn.  In Sweet Adelines we don’t hold our music when we perform.  A prospective member memorizes all the notes and words of one song for her audition.

During the next few weeks, during rehearsal, she is given practice time with our musical leaders.  When she is ready to sing her song with complete note and word accuracy and has visited the chorus at least 3 times, she will audition by singing her part in a quartet.  After passing the audition, she is eligible to be voted into membership in the chorus.

The process of auditioning is challenging and very rewarding!  If you’ve never auditioned before, there is no reason to be concerned.  All members of the chorus warmly encourage prospective members, as we've all had to go through the same process.

April 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Lin Smith

 Lin was recognized for the various ways she has contributed to the chorus over the years.  Having served many years as the immediate past Treasurer, Lin kept impeccible records and performed those duties discreetly.  She is energetic as she leads us in physical warmups, and can be relied upon to help any and all, whenever needed.  You are truly special, Lin.  Thank you!


March 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Nancy Colton

Capitaland's Team Coordinator, Nancy received kudos for her dedication to the chorus and its members. Thank you for all you do, Nancy!


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.
