Dogwood Blossoms


Sweet Adelines Int.


WE HAVE A CHANGE IN OUR REHEARSAL DAY! WE ARE NOW MEETING ON MONDAY EVENINGS STARTING MAY 20TH!!! The time is the same - rehearsal starts at 7:00 with a short  greeting session (6:30) and business meeting (6:45) beforehand - and we are still at the Mount Vernon Developmental Center in the Administration Building!


We had a GREAT time in Cleveland over the weekend of May 11th as we competed in our region's annual competition!! We had several members who were new to the experience plus our director Jeff had not competed with a Sweet Adelines chorus before, but what fun we had! If you would care to watch our performance, use this link:  Once you are on the webcast page, select "Chorus Contest Webcast" - our introduction starts at about 21 minutes into the recording and our actual performance starts around 26 minutes.

     We continue to work on several songs for our annual show on Oct. 13 - keep that date in mind! This show is going to be SO much fun and we are delighted to be performing in The Woodward this year! There is a lot to do to prepare for a show - costuming, guest appearances, sets, etc. are just a few things that go into our plan, besides the music, of course!

     We held our annual installation banquet on May 14; we have some new officers and board members for the 2024 - 2025 year. All of these folks - Barb Bower, Karen Burgess, Lynn Miller, Sammi Noland, Sherry Patterson, Gail Piper, Victoria Williams, and Karen Wunderlin - pledged to lead the chorus this year. Congratulations to all!! AND we recognized our Sweet Adeline of the Year, Susie Noland!!! Susie goes above and beyond in helping our chorus and we appreciate everything she does!
     We also had a delicious dinner, revealed our secret sisters, and enjoyed a skit by several members. We were glad to have some guests with us too - always good to see them!


     As you can see, our chorus never has a dull moment!   


     Have you ever wondered what happens at our rehearsals? We practice our songs/music, of course - words, timing, notes, and sound. Much of our music has learning tracks which help tremendously. We occasionally invite outside musical "coaches" to join us and share tips on singing and other aspects of a chorus - we have found that we can always learn more! We also share in our friendships - this chorus is a great group of "sisters" - and brother Jeff... Smile


     We welcome women and girls who love to sing to come check us out!  There is always room for more!!


     We started rehearsing at the Mt. Vernon Developmental Center at 1250 Vernonview Drive, Mt. Vernon OH 43050, in February and are enjoying our new space!! Come visit us - we meet on Mondays (starting on May 20th) at 6:30 pm for greetings and discussion, then dive into rehearsal at 7:00.
