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.

January 2019 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Audie Reilly

With 30 years of experience as a Sweet Adeline, Audie Reilly is always ready to share her wealth of information with other members of the chorus. She is especially supportive of new members, providing assistance with both music and choreography (she's a member of the choreo team). A dedicated tenor, Audie also volunteers to take the recyclable bottles and cans donated from chorus members and brings them to recycling centers in order to earn additional chorus money from the returns, where every little bit counts! We all appreciate Audie's ready smile and gracious attitude, so thanks for what you do!

 

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! 

 

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!
