Sacramento Valley Chorus is an extraordinary group of women who gather together in celebration of the art form known as barbershop music. We are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International. Our director is the wonderful Lynne Erickson, who inspires us to reach new heights with each performance. We can be heard throughout the year, singing for civic and charitable organizations, private groups, churches, community events, and fundraisers. We love to entertain by putting on our own musical events each year for the community, our friends, and families. We have an Annual Show each Fall, perform all over the Sacramento area for Christmas and holiday functions, provide Singing Valentines in February, and in an effort to stay committed to singing and performing at the highest level possible, we compete each year in a regional contest!

 

We meet every Wednesday for our weekly rehearsal in Sacramento, CA and welcome any and all women who love to sing! Our members are of all ages, all walks of life, all levels of training and experience. The one thing we ALL have in common is our love and passion for bringing music to life for ourselves and others. Members are not required to read music - we have a great library of learning tracks available for all who learn by ear. When you attend one of our rehearsals, new guests will be privately voice placed in a separate room by one of our music leaders, they will listen to your vocal skills and range and place you in one of the four barbershop voice parts to start. These four parts are bass, baritone, lead and tenor. You will then be placed on the risers with sheet music and a "riser buddy" who sings your voice part so you can follow along during rehearsal. For those who may be nervous about singing in front of others - no worries there - we are a chorus, not a group of soloists competing for solos. We help each other in a friendly and welcoming environment to be the best singer you want to be and develop your skills. For those looking for a more individual experience and performing opportunities, quartetting is available as well!

We have an amazing repertoire of music - jazz, pop, Broadway, ballads, holiday, patriotic.... this list goes on! All songs are performed in the barbershop tradition of four part harmony, making it irresistible to love!

Come and check us out!
