Prospective Members


So you're interested in joining ~

Step 1: Come to one of our Rehearsals!

Guests are always welcome!

When -  We rehearse every Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 9:30 pm

Where - Pine Grove United Methodist Church

               1580 Central Avenue, Albany NY

Step 2: Becoming a Member of Capitaland Chorus 

             & Sweet Adelines International!

A prospective member is “voice-placed” either at or after their first visit to determine which part she is most suited to sing. Barbershop harmony consists of four voice parts: Lead, Baritone, Tenor and Bass. Once "voice-placed" after the first visit, you will then be given an electronic audio file and sheet music with a current song from our repertoire to learn. In Sweet Adelines, we don’t hold our music when we perform. 


Step 3: The Audition!

A prospective member must memorize all the notes and words of one song for their audition. If you can't read music, don't worry, that's where the audio files will help you learn your notes! During the next few weeks at rehearsal, you are given practice time with our musical leaders.  When you are ready to sing the audition piece with complete note and word accuracy and have visited the chorus at least 3 times, you will audition by singing your part in a quartet. After passing the audition, you are eligible to be voted into membership in the chorus.


The process of auditioning is challenging and very rewarding!  If you’ve never auditioned before, there is no reason to be concerned.  All members of the chorus warmly encourage prospective members, as we've all had to go through the same process.


If you have questions along the way, our Membership Team is there to offer answers and advice. Of course, any of our members will be more than happy to help you out, too.
