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.

October 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Emily Boncordo

CONGRATS to our newest Member of the Month! Christine hit the bullseye when she picked Emily as our October standout. Not only is Emily an awesome tenor, but she recently joined the choreo team, the perfect place to showcase her smiling, expressive face. Thanks Emily, we all feel that you are a great person and a real asset to Capitaland!


September 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Christine DeFilippo

Thanks to Christine for being our music librarian! For one thing, it's her responsibility to make sure that the guest musical folders are up-to-date with all our current music, which is really appreciated by Membership! She is also in the front row, where her smiling face and choreography skills really shine, and did I mention that she has been part of the visual team in the past? Christine can also often be found in the small group that does singouts, an important revenue source for Capitaland. Brava Christine, the chorus extends its thanks for all you do.

 

July-August 2017 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Laurie Pracher

Laurie is one of those "behind-the-scenes" members who works hard in the chorus: She serves on the 2017 Management Team, is a dedicated chorus member and often volunteers for singouts, even though she must travel quite a bit to participate. Laurie always strives for excellence, both in the chorus and in her quartet, and for all these things, we'd like to recognize and thank her!


Capitaland Chorus 2017 Woman of Note:

MEGAN SCOLARO

Capitaland Chorus is extremely fortunate to have such a talented musical leader such as Megan. Whether she is conducting physical or vocal warmups, her enthusiasm and support inspire us all to do our very best as singers. As baritone section leader, she handled her responsibilities in the same giving, friendly way. We can count on Megan to hear and comment on the accuracy of pitch and our singing, and we often rely on her suggestions and comments for improvement. Megan makes us all smile with her own lovely voice and her singing of instructions as she conducts warmups, we love to have her direct us! Thank you Megan, for being a solid musical pillar for our chorus, we've grown and improved with your help!
