Women of all ages who enjoy singing harmony are invited to attend the Orangeville Chorus' weekly rehearsal on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. at the Horizons Event Centre (behind the Mono Plaza, 4 km north of Orangeville) to see and hear what they're all about. The Orangeville Chorus is one of the hundreds of Sweet Adelines International choruses that make up this worldwide organization of women who sing four-part barbershop harmony.
Musical knowledge is not necessary to join — voice training and music education are valuable components of members' benefits. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range with the help of Master Directors Pat Vipond and Joan Borden. The Orangeville Chorus performs regularly throughout the community, offering its talent for entertainment at civic events and charitable functions, in addition to promoting harmony and friendship among women.
Singing, performing and music education are only a portion of the benefits that members of Sweet Adelines International enjoy. Members experience genuine friendships, increased self-confidence, renewed vitality, and the unwavering motivation and inspiration of others that becomes invaluable. In addition, membership offers discounts on sheet music, CDs, videos, books, brochures, merchandise and International Convention registration. Membership also includes a free subscription to the Sweet Adelines International magazine The Pitch Pipe and other relevant newsletters that are filled with news, stories, letters, pictures and everything else there is to know about the wonderful world of Sweet Adelines.
Sweet Adelines International is a musical force around the world. The organization is headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., where it was founded in 1945. This nonprofit music education organization is one of the world's largest singing organizations for women encompassing more than 25,000 members, 1,200 registered quartets and 600 choruses in Canada, United States, Australia, England, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Scotland, Sweden, The Netherlands and Wales.
