gearing up for the show

August 30, 2011

We are working hard on our music and choreography for our upcoming shows on October 14th and 15th.  It is amazing how a small amount of movement can really make a song come to life.  I tend to lack rhythm, so was a bit hesitant at first to embrace the idea of having to MOVE and SING at the same time.  I quickly overcame my anxiety once I could see how much more fun we were having singing and therefore how much more fun the audience would have listening.  Even a little choreography can make a huge difference and it is so exciting to start putting everything together.

Get excited for our show, it is going to be great!!!

Off to SET

August 5, 2011

The Walla Walla Valley Sweet Adelines are off to Pasco for the weekend to attend SET (Summer Enrichment Training).  We will post a recap next week!

October Performance!

August 3, 2011

It is a constant source of amazement to me that no matter how low my energy level on a Monday evening, I am always energized by a chorus rehearsal.  This last rehearsal was no exception.  We are currently working hard on learning the songs for our upcoming Show, so there’s a lot going on!

Our Show is called ‘They Write the Songs’ and will be held at the Walla Walla Community College Performing Arts Center at 7:30pm on Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15.  Please put those dates on your calendar!  We are happy to have local standout performers Richele Loney and Kevin Loomer on board with us this year, along with Cougar Henderson and Nathan Loomer.  There’s a LOT of work that goes on behind the scenes too, and longtime friends and supporters ‘Pete’ Holm and Bill Loney have agreed to help us again this year.  Thanks guys!  Shows are a lot of work, but there’s nothing better than performing in front of a home town crowd.

A little bit about barbershop..

July 4, 2011

If you are like me before I joined Sweet Adelines, you know what barbershop sounds like but you don’t really know much more about it. Well, thank goodness for Wikipedia. Who knows how we would figure out anything without it. Remember when you had to go to the library to research something? Ok, back on topic… Here is a quick definition brought to us by Wikipedia.

“Barbershop… is a style of a cappella… characterized by consonant four-part chords for every melody note… Each four parts has it’s own role: generally, the lead sings the melody, the tenor harmonizes above the melody, the bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes, and the baritone completes the chord.
Barbershop singing is performed both by men’s and women’s groups; the elements of the barbershop style and the names of the voice parts are the same for both.”

There is it, a quick definition of Barbershop.  I think it is important to note that it is also super fun to sing and totally different then classical musical theater or other typical choirs.
