Our January "Be Our Guest" Program was a GREAT Success!
In January, we held our annual Guest Program, in conjunction with the Sweet Adelines International Global Open House event. Guests took part in a 4 week program with the option to join us on our Hearts & Harmony Show on February 9th. Our guest program helpers were hopping for the full 4 weeks! We had 41 women come thru our doors. Wow! About 20-25 of those women were able to attend most of the weekly sessions and some of those were available to join us on our show. We were thrilled with the response. And we call that a great
Most of our guests have already become members and several are in the process of becoming members.
If you missed out on this fun program, don't despair! You can join us at any rehearsal, just to watch and enjoy or to get up on the risers and sing right along with us. We are always looking for women who love to sing. And if you've been told your voice is too low, don't worry, we have a spot for you! We have places for all vocal ranges.
Hearts & Harmony Show
On February 9th, we held our Hearts & Harmony show at the IFES hall in Mountain View, CA.
We had delicious sweet and savory treats for our audience, as well
as a no-host bar. A new item for us was selling our own wine glasses with a complimentary pour.
The chorus performed some new material, as well as audience favorites. Also appearing were our Daytimers
chorus, quartets 2 Mile Radius
, as well as
Special Guest quartet, The Crush
. These entertaining men were great sports and had fun with the chorus during our Beach Boys' Medley and then went on to wow the audience in their own fabulous set. Before the show, and during intermission, roaming quartets entertained smaller groups with Valentines songs.
We are planning to make this show a yearly event, so look for an announcement next year and don't miss it!
On February 14th, members of the chorus made the day extra
special for several unsuspecting people, via phone calls and in-person Singing Valentines. This is a program that we do every year, so be sure to check the website again in January, if you'd like to surprise someone you love! We also send Singing Holiday Cards in December, so watch for that program.
We're Headed to HAWAII!!!
