WELCOME!

On February 24th, we had a great coaching by the dynamic duo of

Donny Rose and his wife, Amy.  They are both full of Barbershop knowledge! 

We learned a lot about the new catagory, Visual Communication, along with working on getting our two contest songs ready for competition in May.

Donny and Amy both also have great senses of humor,

so the day was also filled with laughter and fun.

When the coaching was finished, we all went over to the Swinging Doors for an

"Afterglow" which included dinner, lots of conversation and more laughter,

and a chance to unwind together.

     2023 is a red letter year for Sweet Adelines!  For the first time in 4 years, all the regions were allowed to gather in person for their annual competition.  Our region (13) gathered in Spokane, WA in mid May and held our competition in the First Interstate Center for the Arts (formerly known as the Opera House).  It was wonderful to be able to see all our sister Sweet Adelines again and share our convention with each other.  RiversEdge competed with 9 new members and we had a great time.  We also raised our scores, so it was a fabulous weekend.  If you like to sing and build lasting friendships, we invite you to visit us, and you just might find that RiversEdge is the place to be for good music and life-long friendships.

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!


June, 2023 - I still don't want to take this cute post down,

so it will be here for a while longer.

It says a lot about how our chorus enjoys our

rehearsals and each other!

 

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!!
