Have you ever wanted to perform in public? This year, we're having TWO Community Sing Events. We are opening our rehearsals for guests to attend a six-week session where you will learn a couple of songs right along with chorus members. The conclusion is a public performance with the Beach Girls. Our first A Cappella Mania session starts on August 7 and continues every Tuesday night (for six weeks). We will end the session with a public performance on Patriot Day, September 11, 2018. The second opportunity starts in November and will end with one (or more) performances during the holidays (dates to be determined). Come to one (or both) sessions. The events are FREE, but space is limited, so you need to RSVP by sending an email request to reserve your spot to [masked] The Golden Sands Chorus is a Chapter of Sweet Adelines International. We have been an active part of Greater Long Beach since we chartered in 1952 (that’s 65 years!) We call ourselves “The Beach Girls” and currently have 30 women who meet every Tuesday night. Our music is arranged in the Barbershop style, which an American genre (4-part a cappella harmony). We sing a variety of music from all eras (Show Tunes, Patriotic, Christmas, Love Songs, Standards, and more…). We work hard at our craft and we love to perform! We sing at community events, compete against other chorus in the Spring, and have and annual show. Our director, Gerry Papageorge, is a fabulous vocal coach and singer, so each week we work on vocal production skills, too. Do you love to sing? Can you carry a tune? Our chorus may be just what you've been looking for. Women of all ages and vocal abilities who'd like to experience singing four-part a cappella harmony are invited to join us at our weekly rehearsal. The ability to read music is a plus, but is not required. Come at 6:45 pm so we can determine which part (tenor, lead, baritone or bass) you're best suited for. We'll give you a book of sheet music to use for the evening, then you'll join us for physical and vocal warm-ups and some four-part a cappella singing! If you'd like to just come and watch, visitors are always welcome! We look forward to meeting you!! Hear us sing our 2013 competition songs:
