WELCOME!

 

RiversEdge Chorus is an extraordinary group of women who gather together in celebration of the art form known as barbershop music. We are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International.

 

We are available throughout the year for performances. 

Our popular performances include Patriotic, Slice of America and of course our popular Christmas performance package.  We can also tailor our performance to suit your needs.

GETTING BACK TO NORMAL


Nancy and Chorus resized


 On February 19th, 2022 we had our first coaching since COVID began.

It has been a tough couple of years, but the chorus remained

united and stayed together.  Now it's time to get back to the

joy of working together to improve again.

 

Nancy Kurth, a talented and knowledgeable coach, spent a wonderful

day working with the chorus to get back to the basics, and helping us to

move toward a good unit sound.  It was rewarding to work hard and

see lots of improvement through the day. We have several new members,

and they enjoyed learning more about how to sing Barbershop.

We had a lovely lunch catered by the Breezeway Cafe, and of course,

we went out to dinner after the coaching. All in all, it was a great day,

and we are all energized and excited to be back on track again.

We heard that the mask mandate will be lifted on March 12,

so it's even more reason to be excited!!  YAY!!!!!

A LITTLE INFO ABOUT OUR DIRECTOR

Since Bianca Dixon became our director in July of 2019, we have had a wonderful time.

Bianca is knowledgeable in both vocal production and the barbershop style of singing,

which she shares with us every week.  She is also full of fun and keeps our rehearsals

interesting and very enjoyable.  Most evenings, we are surprised that the rehearsal time

is almost over and it seems we just got started!  She is a real positive element for us!

We invite you to come see how much fun we have at our rehearsals!

 

As the administrator of our web site, I was going to take down the following picture from the website, since I put it up here quite a while ago.  However, since it illustrates the humor

in our chorus, and Bianca still uses this tool to remind us about placement,

I decided to leave it up for a while longer!


February, 2022 - I started to take it down, but it shows a lot of who we are,

so it's gonna stay up for a while longer!  Enjoy, and come visit - you won't be sorry!

 

There is a cute story behind the photo below:

When Bianca came to audition to become director of our chorus, she gave us a

little tip about how to focus our sound better.  She said "put your index fingers

under your nose, kind of like you had a mustache, and then try to sing a little

above your "mustache."  We tried it, and it worked well for us.

So, last night (6-17-19), when she arrived on her first night as our director,

we were all standing on the risers in our "mustaches" and shouted,

"WELCOME, BIANCA!"

Needless to say, she was surprised and almost fell down laughing -

just the reaction we wanted! 

It was a great way to welcome her and let her know we are behind her 100%!!

WHAT A HOOT!!

 

WE LOVE YOU, BIANCA!!
