On Sunday, June 24 at 3:00 p.m., First Christian Church at Cascade & Platte is presenting the Velvet Hills Chorus, a chapter of the Sweet Adelines International. This dynamic group of women, who love to sing four-part unaccompanied Barbershop harmony, recently won the Region 8 chorus competition and will be traveling to Hawaii next year to compete in the international competition. Their program will feature several of their competition numbers, sung by the chorus and a quartet or two. A free will offering will be taken.
The Velvet Hills Show Chorus has been a chapter of Sweet Adelines International for over 40 years. They currently have around 110 members who are united in their love of singing Barbershop harmony. They rehearse weekly for three hours and have extra weekend coaching sessions several times a year. Their members have many opportunities for learning and improving musical skills, with individual instruction available with a local professional singer and voice instructor. In their continuing quest for excellence, they regularly bring in nationally renowned coaches.
The chorus is dedicated to enriching the lives of its members and the community through education, performance, and musical excellence. In addition to performing in the community on a regular basis, they participate in the annual Rocky Mountain Region 8 chorus competition. http://www.velvethills.org/
