Kathie has been involved with music for many years, but truly found her musical passion when she discovered SAI and acapella four-part harmony 15 years ago.  Having sung the lead part with several quartets (including one top ten Regional Quartet), Kathie has found that there is great satisfaction and lots of hard work involved in making those chords ring!  When not enjoying this wonderful hobby, Kathie is Chief Operating Officer for Prudential Manor Homes and shares her home with her husband John.
 
Merideth has been singing for most of her life but is brand new to Barbershop and quarteting but loves every minuteof it. She has quickly developed a love of 4-part harmony as a bass. Merideth has worked for many years in college student housing. She also loves to bake and spend time with her family.

 

Laurie has also been a member of Sweet Adelines for over 10 years, and has recently switched from the lead part to baritone.  (Is she nuts?)  She is a "newbie" to quarteting and is just loving singing with these wonderful women.  Laurie is a family nurse practitioner who just sees pediatrics and works in Cobleskill for Bassett Healthcare.  She and her husband Mark love the outdoors, and music of all kinds.
 
Isabel (commonly known as Isie) has been a Sweet Adeline for more than 25 years, singing tenor.  She has sung in several quartets, most recently singing with Kathie in Ain’t That a KICC!, a top-ten regional quartet. Isie is enjoying her retirement from teaching and education, and one of her biggest pleasures comes from traveling. She and her barbershopper husband Mike try to attend as many Barbershop conventions and shows as they can.

Meet the Chorus

Come to the About Us section to meet the director, and find out what we're all about!


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.
