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.

May 2016 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Pat Clow
"Miss Pat" is a true gem in the jewels of Capitland. Upon presenting this honor, Diane thanked Pat for immediately reaching out to her upon becoming CCL, a role that Pat had been in for many years, to offer both knowledge and assistance. Diane also told of an experience between them at competition, again, helpful to Diane. Pat works behind the scenes, organizing various things related to coaches, shows, and fundraising. These stories of Pat, a long-time member, exemplify the support and friendship of a woman always ready to give of herself - to others, and for the well-being of the chorus. We appreciate all you do, Miss Pat. Thank you and congratulations!
April 2016 Sweet Adeline of the Month: Diane Ostrander
Rose, lead choreographer for the front row, had high praise for Diane's diligence and determination to quickly learn and perform the routine with "all-in" energy and characterization. Diane also took on the role of CCL this year, expertly guiding our members in preparation for the annual Region 15 competition. Diane, thank you for all your hard work - and always with a smile! Congratulations, you are so deserving of this honor!
Capitaland Chorus 2015 Woman of Note:
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!
