Acappella chorus seeking female members

By on June 26, 2019

Vocal Harmonix is seeking women of all ages, shapes, sizes, and vocal range to join their acappella ranks.

 

Every year on July 13, singers in Sweet Adelines International and fans of acappella music sung in the barbershop style celebrate Barbershop Music Appreciation Day with community performances and other activities designed to share this unique singing style.

Barbershop singing is an acappella (voices only, no instruments) singing style with roots in African-American improvisational singing of the 1800s. Barbershop Music Appreciation Day commemorates the founding of Sweet Adelines International.

Founded on July 13, 1945 in Tulsa, Okla., Sweet Adelines International is a worldwide women’s singing organization committed to advancing acappella singing in the barbershop style through opportunities in education, performance and competition. Sweet Adelines is one of the world’s largest singing organizations for women, with a membership of nearly 21,000 in 525 choruses and over 900 quartets across the globe.
