Dogwood Blossoms


Sweet Adelines Int.

      Where did spring go? It's June already and we are singing - and are looking forward to possible summer performances (and our show in October). We'll post any performance dates as we know them - we hope to get together with the Fun Center Chordsmen in Mansfield and perhaps have a presence at the Mt. Vernon Music and Arts Festival...

     We were ready to take part in our regional competition via video but had to cancel as several members were not feeling well. BUT - the good news is that we have those competition numbers ready to perform and are now working on more songs! We are happy to report that our members are healthy again! 

     We were delighted to have some visitors on May 17th and June 7th - we look forward to seeing them again. We love to share 4-part harmony with others Smile

     The chorus installed new officers and board members for the 2022-23 year at a banquet on May 24th. Our hard-working officers are: President - Cindy Brown; VP - Barb Bower; Secretary - Debi Kuhn; and Treasurer - Karen Burgess. Four other board members were installed: Barb Blaschke, Michele Coscia, Becky Moore and Sherry Patterson. Many thanks to these 8 women for their leadership! We also thank Bonnie Rutherford and Kathy Butcher, our out-going board members, for their efforts over the last few years. 

     We were delighted to recognize Karen Burgess as our chapter's Sweet Adeline of the Year! Karen is our treasurer and keeps track of our music library - both can be daunting tasks! Director Donna Dudgeon was also recognized and thanked for her work with the chorus. Some milestones were also recognized: Cindy Brown and Audrey Phillips received their 5-year pins and Gail Piper received a 20-year pin. The evening ended with secret sisters being revealed - it was a lot of fun to find out who had been a special "sister in song" this past year.


     We are going forward with plans for a show this year (after having to cancel the last 2 years...)! Please put October 16th on your calendars as we plan a fun, entertaining Sunday afternoon show. Details will be posted in the future!

     We hope to welcome women and girls to our rehearsals in the near future. We rehearse on most Tuesday evenings at 7:00 at Central Christian Church, at 17833 Gambier Rd. (Rt. 229) in Mt. Vernon Ohio. We would love to meet you and introduce you to the joys of singing 4-part harmonies!!! Feel free to call us or leave a message on our Facebook page "Dogwood Blossoms Chorus" for more information. Don't read music? No worries - we go over the parts in rehearsal and we also have learning tracks available for much of our music.

Dogwood Blossoms Chorusis an extraordinary group of women who gather together in celebration of the art form known as barbershop music - we sing 4-part harmony music, a cappella style, in several genres. We are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International.
