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.

March 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Kathie Hedrick

Congratulations to Kathie, who we want to honor this month for all her hard work on the Wine and Dine for the Arts grant. Kathie's tireless work helped to procure this grant for us again this year, and we appreciate her efforts in reaching out to get Capitaland Chorus situated as an important piece of the arts here in our area. Kathie also serves as a musical leader, as an assistant section leader for the leads, and did I mention that she also sing in her own quartet called "Into Wishin' "? Many thanks Kathie, for all the hats that you wear in order to serve our chorus!


February 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Dodie Gearing

As a dedicated member of the music team, Dodie is assistant section leader for the basses. But you can also rely on Dodie to help organize guest practices and take part in auditions, providing musical guidance whenever requested. The Membership team is extremely grateful for her willingness to share in the task of moving guests along the path to full membership. Dodie also participates in many chorus singouts which are integral to both our budget and public image, and has served on numerous committees and held a variety of offices in the chorus. Thank you Dodie, for all that you do!


January 2018 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Fran Pinto

Capitaland is proud and happy to have a dedicated member like Fran, her accomplishments are many!  Here's just a few: She chaired our big show this past November 2017, which included coordinating ad sales, organizing committees, creating & designing the show program and about a million other tasks that go with that chair's responsibility. The show's success is a testament to Fran's hard work and also to the many people who assisted her. Did I mention that Fran also blows the pitch for us in rehearsal, sings bass with her quartet "Mad Caps," and is a dual chorus member with Saratoga Soundtrack? Whew, it's hard to keep up with her, but you inspire us all to try! Many thanks Fran, for all that you do for our chorus!



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!
