You can most certainly find your inner voice and become a STAR with Greater Harmony Chorus. Our symbol is the Shooting Star, and you know how everyone loves to see the energy of a shooting star flying through the night sky. Don't be shy....just come any Tuesday night and spend a "Girls Night Out" with 50 others women who will become your friends in minutes. Our director is young and enthusiastic, and we are now preparing for our fall show (October 26) and learning fun, new tunes like "Dancing Queen", "Ode to Joy", and "Ease on Down the Road", to name a few. In addition we have wonderful vocal and presentation coaches who come and work with us throughout the year.
We are very proud of our Young Women in Harmony quartet, Here Comes Treble. These four teens from Knoch, Mars, and the City of Pittsburgh Public Schools WON the Young Women in Harmony contest held in Sandusky in February, and they qualify to compete in the International Young Women's contest in 2014. Some of our own members served as their mentors and coaches!! We are very excited that our newest member is just 13 years old!! Opportunities abound for women of all ages in Sweet Adelines.
We are also pleased to announce that we are partnering with the North Hills Men's Chorus to sponsor a Youth Harmony Festival on Saturday, October 5, 2013. This will be a FREE all-day event for junior and senior high boys and girls. It will be a fun, educational day. Watch our website for more details. You won't want to miss this!
We will be moving to our summer rehearsal location at Glade Run Church on Route 8 at the end of May. Ease on up or down Route 8 and sing and dance with us this summer. We promise you a "Sweet" experience.
