Some Items to Note ... aka .. the small print

  • You are not required to read music but it is helpful to recognize some of the common symbols
  • Our members commit to attending weekly rehearsals and to practice between rehearsals
  • Our members pay a monthly dues/fees to assist in paying for our facilities, coaches, our director and lots of educational opportunities. Additionally, these cover their annual membership fees for Sweet Adelines International and Region 26 (our region of SAI)
  • We are expected to learn our music quickly and thoroughly – we do not hold music on the risers so we must know our notes and words
  • There is a visual component to our performance and sometimes choreography
  • We have a fun annual retreat to work on our music and enjoy each other
  • There are many local workshops covering topics ranging from breath control to choreography to showmanship to arranging and directing available to our members. Each year we enjoy a weekend of coaching with an outside director/coach - an entire weekend full of learning & fun!
