     Do You Love to Sing?


**Special note: we are currently seeking :

bass --sings the lowest pitch and provides the foundation for the harmonic structure of the chord.  Bass range is “C” below middle “C” to “G” above middle “C”.

If this is your "specialty" we need YOU!  


leads--sing melody . Range--“A” below middle “C” to a “C” about middle “C”.



            Other parts are always welcome, so please don't stay away!

If you are a woman who enjoys singing, you are welcome to visit our rehearsals at any time.  Sweet Adelines provides fun, fellowship, and loads of music education.


 Our chorus is committed to vocal and performance excellence.  You do not need to know how to read music to be a Sweet Adeline. Since we sing a cappella (without instrumental accompaniment), you simply need to be able to sing one of our four parts with other parts being sung around you.  We have many singers whose only experience has been church choir or high school chorus.  We all learn together, taught by our excellent directors, as well as regular coaches with extensive experience in vocal production and presentation.


One of our primary activities each year is regional competition.  It is here that we learn to perfect our art form by being judged by a panel of international-level musical and performance experts.  Our chorus is committed to excellence and continued improvement.  (Click here to see a video of Sweet Adelines at International Competition in October, 2010 in Seattle. Don't miss our own Audience Choice Award performance--SOS Safari-- at Regional Competition April 2014 (link on our HOME page/SIdebar).


Detailed information will be provided to you at each rehearsal that you attend as a guest.  After attending four consecutive rehearsals as a guest, you are eligible to audition for the chorus. 


We meet every Tuesday night at 6:45 p.m. in the Parish Hall at St. John's Episcopal Church 290 Old Haw Creek Rd, Asheville, NC 28805  We usually finish at 9:30 p.m.  If you are coming for your first visit, we encourage you to arrive a few minutes early so that you may be introduced to our director and receive some information about the chorus.  We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our favorite hobby.

Song O'Sky rehearsals and performances are fragrance free since many people have allergic reactions to scented products like hairspray, dryer sheets, etc.


Also, in order to build vocal and physical stamina, our singers are expected to stand on the risers during the 2-3 sessions (and 30-45 minute performances). There is some break time and certainly chairs are available for those needing a quick time out, but if you have mobility issues that are a concern, please speak with one of us to see how we may be able to work around them.

                       Check It Out!!

Go to our Events Calendar for information about our upcoming activities and performances.
