On October 16, 2014, as the ribbon was cut to open the tri-annual GSUSA convention in Salt Lake City, Sweet Adelines were there. Their booth in the exhibit hall showcased the Sweet Adelines programs for both girls and adults, and informed volunteers and parents about the opportunities available.
Girls will learn about barbershop harmony and find out about taking musical pitches. Ensembles from Mountain Jubilee Chorus sang, and provided goodies for the girls.
Keep tuning in for developments and pictures of the first patches to be awarded.

Are you a female who likes to sing ... wishing you had an outlet for your love of singing .... something wholesome and fun to do ... and perhaps something that would get you out of the house every now and again .... and would help you be around other people .... in an environment that is supportive and loving? Well, our Sweet Adelines chorus is all that and more!
Our Monroe, Louisiana chorus has a dozen or so ladies who LOVE to sing and blend their voices with other voices. However, we NEED to have at least sixteen (16) ladies. So, if YOU want to feel needed, we can fulfil that desire, too! We TRULY NEED more ladies to sing with us.
Each small chorus should have 16 singers to meet the minimum criteria set by International organization. During these holidays, we are finishing up our Holiday music, and about to begin learning new songs for a new year. Why don't you consider driving to Monroe and visiting us next Monday.
