The date is Saturday, October 1 at 7:00 pm; the place is Memorial Theater, 112 East High St., Mt. Vernon OH. We will have some former directors as our guests and will share the stage with "The Alliance", an award-winning men's chorus from the Columbus area. See the poster above for more information or call (740) 720-3221 - we would love to see you in the audience!


     Following on the heels of the show, we'll again host Holiday Chorus! We'll start with pizza and a meet-and-greet session on Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Central Christian Church, 17833 Gambier Rd. in Mt. Vernon OH. Women and girls who would like to perform holiday music with us this Christmas season are invited to join us and find out how much fun it is to be a Sweet Adeline! Learning tracks will be provided and reading music is not necessary. We'd love to have you join us!

 

     The chorus is delighted to welcome our newest member, Barb Blaschke! Barb sings bass and is a great addition to our chorus.


     We invite women and girls who love to sing to visit a rehearsal and check out our wonderful hobby! Join us at 7:00 most Tuesday nights (We'll be at the theater on Sept. 27th) at Central Christian Church, 17883 Gambier Rd. in Mt.

Dogwood Blossoms Chorus announces new director

 

Dogwood Blossoms Chorus, a chapter of Sweet Adelines International in Mt. Vernon OH, is pleased to welcome Rachel Fankhauser as the new director of the chorus. Ms. Fankhauser follows Donna Dudgeon, who retired at the end of 2015 after leading the chorus for 25 years.

 

            Ms. Fankhauser has an extensive background in vocal music: she has been involved with singing most of her life and she sang and traveled with her two sisters as a child. She was introduced to women’s 4-part harmony in high school where she sang bass in a quartet; in college, she traveled every weekend in an a cappella quartet. Rachel studied elementary education and music at Baptist University of America and taught elementary music for 3 years before starting her family.

 

Rachel joined Hocking Valley Chorus (of Sweet Adelines Int’l) in southeastern Ohio eleven years ago. Since then, her experiences in Sweet Adelines have been many: she sang in a quartet and was assistant director with City of Flags Chorus in Canton OH; sang with Gem City Chorus in Dayton; sang in Voice of America Chorus in West Chester OH while also serving as assistant director and section leader; and currently sings with Scioto Valley Chorus in Dublin OH, which placed 4th in international competition last fall.

 

            Rachel lives in Belpre OH with her husband Tom. She has three grown sons: David, William, and Thomas.
