What they're saying

Listen to what a few chorus members from around the country have to say about being in an organization like ours:


I was an instrumental musician for years until a temporary medical condition sidelined me.  I was so lucky to find Sweet Adelines to bring me back to music and I found I can use my musical knowledge to help our director teach others.  My chorus is fun, hard-working and I have a wonderful group of female friends - all through Sweet Adelines!

Bonnie Brumpton, Gateway Spotlight ChorUS


I enjoy the fun and fellowship of the ladies, and the beautiful music. Many of the members in my group I have known for years and feel comfortable singing with them. I consider my time with them to be much needed therapy!
Robin Smith, Tri City Sound Chorus

I am so happy to have found Sweet Adelines and am telling all my sisters about the fun we have and the lovely ladies I have met so far.

Cindy Phair, Suncoast Harmony Chapter


I love my new chorus and director. I really enjoy rehearsals now and all of the ladies in the chorus are having such a great time learning new techniques and music in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Singing just lifts my spirits.

Diane Baron, Gateway Spotlight ChorUS

I wish I had done it 20 years ago.
Rosemary Trimpe, Grand Rapids Chorus

I have made so many wonderful new friends and the music runs through my head 24/7.
Carole Ann Richards, Cincinnati Sound Chorus

Singing is the best therapy for lifting spirits. The music creates a positive healing flow of energy from one person to another and it is a very powerful tool in creating stable mental and physical health. Music is known to reduce stress and balance the spirit.
Susan Swertfager, South Valley Sound Chorus

I'm a part of an awesome group of ladies. They work really hard at each rehearsal, but they have so much fun at the same time.
Patti Bade, Spirit of Harmony Chorus


Being a Sweet Adeline, simply put,  changed my life.  As a retired music teacher I felt, at my retirement,  that  I  no longer had  an outlet for my love of music. Then I was invited to my first women's barbershop rehearsal and found a whole sisterhood that shared my passion.  What an exciting moment that was.  As my understanding of this art form grew so did my passion for music.  My present chorus, Gateway Spotlight is full of compassionate and dedicated sisters who share my same love.  Our director has taught me more than I ever learned in music school or in any other chorus.  As I begin to grasp the techniques of vocal production I marvel at  the difference in sound  and musicality one can achieve.  May I never stop learning!  Thank you Sweet Adelines.
