Sacramento Valley Chorus Rehearsal
Sacramento Valley Chorus is more than just an a cappella ensemble, it is a family! We love getting together each week, and sharing friendships as well as great music! Do you sing along with the radio? Do you like to sing harmony? Has it been awhile since you sang and you miss the joy it brought into your life? If you are looking for fun, friendship and the excitement of singing 4-part harmony, then Sacramento Valley Chorus is for you! Come join this high energy, award winning chorus for an evening of singing and fun. Come check us out. You will be glad you did! Sacramento Valley Chorus welcomes guests to their rehearsal. The chorus is always looking for women that enjoy singing and would like to participate in a group such as ours. In order to get a good understanding of Sweet Adelines and our chorus, we encourage our guest singers to visit several times so they can have a chance to “try it out” before they make a commitment. There is no limit to the number of times a person can attend as a guest.

What we're about

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 Dede Nibler, 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 have also had the pleasure of competing at the Sweet Adelines International Competition in both 2015, 2017 and will do so again in 2019!

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!

SPECIAL NOTE: Come and join us for our 2018 Harmony Academy, starting on September 5th! Check out the flyer below for more exciting details!
