What they're saying 

Listen to what a few chorus members from around the country have to say about being in choruses like ours:


I had just lost my job and was very upset and depressed.

My sister, who sings with another chorus, kept after me to get into Sweet Adelines.

"You have to find a chorus", she would say.  Finally, I found an address on the internet

for a chorus in Altoona.  I walked into the church hall by myself thinking

"what on earth am I doing here?  I don't know anyone."

Altoona Chorus has been my "therapy" now for at least ten years.

Even when I'm down and really don't feel like going to rehearsal, I do it anyway.

I know that I will feel 100 percent better by the time I leave.

And it's not just the camaraderie.  Oh, yes, the music!!!!  There's so much to learn.  I think of it as a music lesson.  The songs we sing are as diverse as the people who sing them.
- Marcia T, Altoona Chorus


“I enjoy the fun and fellowship of the ladies, and the beautiful music.  Many of the members

in my group I have known for years and feel comfortable singing with them.

I consider my time with them to be much needed therapy!”
- Robin Smith, Tri City Sound Chorus

“I am so happy to have found Sweet Adelines and am telling all my sisters about the fun

we have and the lovely ladies I have met so far.”
- Cindy Phair, Suncoast Harmony Chapter

“I wish I had done it 20 years ago.”
- Rosemary Trimpe, Grand Rapids Chorus

“I have made so many wonderful new friends and the music runs through my head 24/7.“
- Carole Ann Richards, Cincinnati Sound Chorus

”Singing is the best therapy for lifting spirits.  The music creates a positive healing flow of energy from one person to another and it is a very powerful tool in creating stable mental

                              and physical health.  Music is known to reduce stress and balance the spirit.” 
- Susan Swertfager, South Valley Sound Chorus

“I'm a part of an awesome group of ladies.  They work really hard at each rehearsal,

but they have so much fun at the same time.”
- Patti Bade, Spirit of Harmony Chorus
