Dogwood Blossoms


Chorus


Sweet Adelines Int.


 

     Like all of you, Dogwood Blossoms Chorus is dealing with fallout from the Covid-19 virus. Some of our members are working from home; some have lost their jobs; all of us have been impacted in some way and are coping as best we can.


     In mid-March (when Ohio's schools were closed and just ahead of the "stay at home" order), our leadership - with the support of our members - made the decision to suspend our normal rehearsals. We knew we could not put ourselves, each other, or our family and friends at risk. Soon afterward, Sweet Adelines International announced that all of our regional conventions/competitions that had been scheduled for April and May were cancelled. Several of our members have met online via Zoom in order to keep in touch and discuss chorus business and music - not the same as a real-life meeting, but it works! We all look forward to relief from this pandemic!


     We are now working on several songs in anticipation of our annual show in October - we certainly hope we can proceed with our plans!! It's going to be a fun event, so mark your calendars for Oct. 11, 2020! We won't give away the specifics, but we are having a great time learning the music - these are fun songs and several are new to many of our members. 


     Our chorus would love to grow in numbers - the more the merrier, right? Even though we are not meeting right now, keep this information in mind! When our lives return to "normal", please visit us on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm at Central Christian Church, 17833 Gambier Rd. (Rt. 229 East) in Mt. Vernon OH. It is not necessary to read music - we'll provide learning tracks and lots of help as needed. AND we promise that singing with our chorus is LOTS of fun! It's also very healthy - promotes good posture and breathing and relieves stress!

 

     We'll keep this information posted for a while - just to reinforce a positive aspect of chorus life. Twelve of our members traveled to Independence OH on January 31 for a couple of days and nights; we gathered with other Sweet Adelines in our region to learn about singing techniques, showmanship, leadership, and even some social media instruction! Always a good time with lots of singing, laughter, and food - and yes, we some great fellowship after our scheduled activities too. On top of all that, several of our members were recognized for their milestones in longevity as Sweet Adelines:

  • 20 years - Kathy Butcher, Becky Moore, Liz Moore, and Bonnie Rutherford
  • 25 years - Sherry Patterson
  • 30 years - Barb Bower and Barb Snow
  • 35 years - Dixie Waite
  • 40 years - Susan Baldeschwiler, Karen Burgess, and Maureen Hunter

     Each one was recognized with a pin and certificate. Many congratulations to all!!
