Capitaland-4-14-15

Capitaland Chorus of Albany, New York is an award-winning chapter in Region 15 of Sweet Adelines International. We are an all women's barbershop chorus with over 45 members of all ages, with varying interests, backgrounds and occupations, and who live and work in six counties in and around the Capital District, all of whom are dedicated to the art of four-part a cappella singing. Throughout the year, the entire chorus or smaller ensembles and quartets continue to promote our craft

 

, performing for various community events, assisting charitable groups with fundraising, performing in our chorus show, and spreading cheer through Singing Valentines and Harmony Grams for all occasions.


Our year in review: 

 

 

In December we were part of the festivities at the Victorian Street Walk in Saratoga.

February 2016 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Carol Stearns


In passing along the CC pendant that identifies Capitaland's Member of the Month, Sue thanked Carol for taking on the role of Acting Membership Chair while Marilyn Semerad 'snowbirds' in Florida.  Carol posesses both the organizational skills and a knack that ensures visitors to Capitaland receive both a warm welcome and all things necessary to guide their way through the membership process. Carol's positive and encouraging attitude along with her warm, welcoming smile is the perfect blend for the role! Thanks for all you do Carol!

 

December 2015 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Sue Koppenhaver


Aptly named "Queen of Dipthongs," we all appreciate the hard work and guidance that Sue demonstrates as both the lead section leader and in conducting our vocal warmups. She helps us all to be better singers by making sure we match those vowels and lift our phrases and endings. Her sense of humor and fun make the exercises interesting and fun for us as well, so thanks Sue, for your leadership role in the chorus and for encouraging us to do our best and not settle for anything less!

 

Capitaland Chorus 2015 Woman of Note:

NANCY COLTON

What a year of changes it has been for Capitaland Chorus, and as chorus President, Nancy led us through it all with patience, good humor, and love for chorus members and the chorus in general. There was the search for a new Director, a search for a new rehearsal space, and then a switch to team management! Any one of these would be more than enough to handle, but Nancy's leadership in all those areas helped to produce some great results for the chorus, and we are most grateful for all she has done. We can always trust Nancy to do what's best for the chorus, as evidenced by her recent election to the role of Team Coordinator, and we sincerely thank you for all you do for us!
