Are you a woman who loves to sing? In the shower, in your car, or on a stage? Harmony of the Gorge chorus is hosting a special guest night, Jan. 28, for women who love to sing.
Guests will get to experience what it’s like to be a Sweet Adeline from the “inside” as they join with the chorus in four-part a cappella harmonies for the evening.
“This is a perfect chance to learn about and experience the fun that we have singing together,” says Angie McKee, chorus team leader.
Singing is great for you, for your heart, and for your mental health. Did you know that singing will burn 400 calories an hour? What could be more fun than singing with a group of enthusiastic, fun, crazy, and motivated women?
The chorus has more than 20 singers from communities in the Gorge who get together every Tuesday evening (weather permitting) in the fellowship hall of the Hood River Valley Christian Church in Hood River.
This is a very special year for the chorus as they celebrate 30 years of singing and entertaining together throughout the mid-Columbia area. Chorus members are enthusiastically planning for some great performances in the coming months.
“Our Singing Valentines are very popular in our communities, as we deliver roses and songs to unsuspecting guys and gals,” said McKee. “We even have people follow us with cameras to capture the special moments.
“In March, we are getting very excited to debut our new competition show package for an audience in Goldendale at one of Dr. Odgen’s fundraisers, and then the chorus will perform a shorter version of the show package (complete with costuming) during the Sweet Adeline regional competition which is in Spokane this year, April 11-12.
