About Festival Sounds Chorus

Festival Sounds Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have 30 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of Perth, Oxford, Middlesex, Elgin and Huron Counties.

 

Performance3 person

The main purpose of Festival Sounds Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.


Education

In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.


CompetitionIn the spring of every year, Festival Sounds Chorus participates in the Region 2 chorus competition. It will be held in Dearborn, Michigan in 2017. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. In 2017, International Competition will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Quartets

Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Festival Sounds Chorus currently has 2 quartets affiliated with the chorus.  Visit our Quartet section to check them out!

 

Affiliation

Festival Sounds Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a non-profit organization of approximately 30,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
