Teaching the World to Sing

Submitted By Kevran Day

All over the globe, Sweet Adelines International choruses are joining together to teach the world to sing. Women of all ages who enjoy singing are invited to Bay Area Showcase Chorus' January Open House Nights, every Thursday in January, 2012, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at SES Hall, 1375 Lafayette St., Santa Clara, CA. Bay Area Showcase Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, an organization of nearly 25,000 women worldwide who sing four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop style.

The Bay Area Showcase Chorus members share a love for music and singing barbershop harmony. As a member, you too can experience the exhilaration of performing and singing with us. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range with the help of the chorus' musical leaders and director(s).

Bay Area Showcase Chorus performs regularly throughout the community, offering its talent for entertainment at civic events and charitable functions, since 1956. Members of the chorus come from all over the Bay Area, from as far as Galt, to enjoy the singing, fun, and friendship offered by the chorus. Bay Area Showcase Chorus was the 2010 Regional Champions and was honored to represent the region at the 2011 International Competition.

The chorus will be competing for the title again in April 2012 and is also taking part in the 2012 World Choir Games in Cincinnati, OH, in July. The World Choir Games are often called the Olympics of singing and Bay Area Showcase Chorus is proud to be one of 16 choruses that will be participating in their first Barbershop Chorus division of the competition.
