LADIES: Do you like to sing? YOU are invited to visit rehearsal! If you are within driving distance of Monroe, and like to sing, then this a cappella group invites you to come try your voice with ours! We are poised to GROW.
All YOU need to do is SHOW UP at a rehearsal, and if you like it, let the director know you'd like to audition. The audition process is simple, and since this is an EDUCATION organization, you don't even have to know how to read music--training is provided as a benefit of membership!
Mondays, from 6:00 pm to about 8:15 at 1001 Forsythe Avenue, Monroe, LA. There's no better time than next Monday!
This is a photo of Mayor Mayo proclaiming it "Sweet Adelines Day" recently. We love our town, we love our state, and we LOVE singing barbershop harmony! We'd love to share this art form with you, too.
We are excited to be partnering with FUN PASTA FUNDRAISING!

Thanks for your help! SASC singers will use the funds raised to cover costs of attending INTERNATIONAL conference in September 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana, which will bring back so much GOOD to our northeast Louisiana and Monroe community! You blessing us helps us bless others!
SASC gathers each Monday at 6:30 at 1001 Forsythe Avenue, Monroe LA to learn songs, rehearsal, and quality vocal education. If you like to sing (or know a lady who does!), consider stopping by one Monday evening -- you'll have fun, and make some new friends, too!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you for ordering pasta!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to You! 2019 is YOUR year to SING!
In the month of December, SASC will *NOT* be rehearsing on Dec. 24th (Christmas Eve!) or on Dec. 31 (New Year's Eve!). We will return to our regularly scheduled Mondays at 6PM rehearsals on January 7, 2019.
We hope each and every one of you have all the joy, love, and peace that you ever hoped for, and that every word you say will reach loving, kind ears. Remember to HEAR with those same loving, kind ears, and remember that all humans face daily challenges. Be kind. Because you can.
Happy Holidays from your Barbershop Lady friends at Southern Acappella Sound Chorus! We LOVE you!
The ladies who sing with SASC are so thankful for the high expectations of Sweet Adelines International. We are thankful for each other -- even when, sometimes, we act and feel like siblings! We are thankful for that interaction.
In this November of thankfulness, from the beginning of our nation to the world around, we hope that each person can find something to be thankful for. Remember that as you count those blessings, you begin to see all things that are possible.
Thank YOU for the opportunity to sing. Singing brings joy. Joy begets joy. Seeds are planted, memories rekindled, and peace grows as notes are harmonized. We are thankful. So thankful.
As any nonprofit knows, fundraising is always a task to be done. SASC was excited to learn about Painting With a Twist's WAAAY COOL way to do fundraising, with the "Painting With a Purpose" - where part of the proceeds from a night of painting is donated back to the nonprofit group.
THANK YOU Painting with a Purpose! We had fun, and earned some sorely needed funds for our organization.
Guess who came to visit?! On October 8th, SASC was privileged to have Kaye Pledge, Region 10 Team Coordinator, and Jeannine Thibodaux, Regional Education Faculty, come to Monroe to share their enthusiasm, expertise, and help in any way possible.
From our Sunday afternoon reception for Kaye on the beautiful Ouachita River, we laughed and enjoyed the time, and learned a LOT from Kaye. When Jeannine and Sheryl York arrived just prior to rehearsal on Monday evening, the chorus was engaged every moment of rehearsal as the singers learned so very many ways to "get more" from their voices. Our gratitude and appreciation goes to the amazing regional leaders who volunteer their time and talents, and give so much back to the art form. THANK YOU Region 10, and THANK YOU Sweet Adelines!
Love singing? We do, too! We love it SOOOO Much!!! But ... if we don't have 15 singers by next May, we won't be able to sing as a registered SWEET ADELINES CHORUS any more!!!
We *NEED* more singers! If you are female, and you like to sing, we are asking YOU to come visit a rehearsal any Monday beginning at 6 (6:30 is okay for visitors!).... we need more voices. There are LOTS of opportunities to grow, develop, and learn with this organization.
If you are a musical professional - GREAT! If not, that's fine, too! This is an educational organization, so that's what happens each week at rehearsals--we LEARN. We learn how our body functions as a musical instrument, how to get lovely sound from our instrument, and how to blend our voices as one.
Won't you consider sharing your talent with us? If you love singing, we hope you'll love singing with us.
Just show up. We'll do the rest. :-)
