The Velvet Hills Show Chorus is the Colorado Springs Chapter of Sweet Adelines International. The women in this chorus range in age from 15 to 80+ and are from all walks of life. Some have had musical training and can read music, others have not; some have sung 4-part a cappella music, barbershop style, others have not. Regardless, they came to Velvet Hills because they love music and quickly specifically love barbershop style. Learning tracks help our member learn their parts, plus individual lessons and opportunity rehearsals are available.
This chorus is for women who love to sing, perform and even compete. We are constantly improving our musical skills with the help of our incredible directing team, led for the past 17 years by the inimitable
Kathy Carmody, Master Director and Education. Because of our hard work and dedication, we have won many regional, most recently, the 2016 Region 8 Chorus Competition - and International awards. We are a non-profit music education association dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of 4-part a cappella harmony.
We meet every Monday night at 7:00p.m. at 3815 N Academy Boulevard in Colorado Springs.If you are interested in learning more about us, please join us at one of our rehearsals to see for yourself what we're about. You will find that being with us will add fun, joy and new friendships to your life. We hope to meet you soon.
On your first visit, you will be welcomed, told a little about the chorus and voice placed by one of our directors in one of the four barbershop voice parts. You will be assigned a "riser buddy" to stand near you on the risers; she'll sing the same part as you do, so you can follow along with her during rehearsal.
