MOUNT VERNON — All over the globe, Sweet Adelines International choruses are joining together to teach the world to sing.
Locally, Dogwood Blossoms is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, an organization of nearly 25,000 women worldwide who sing four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop style. Women of all ages who enjoy singing are invited to attend their open rehearsals and receive free vocal lessons on Jan. 10, 17, 24 and 31, at First Baptist Church, in the lower level. The church is at 303 S. Edgewood Drive in Mount Vernon.
Rehearsals begin at 7:30 pm.
The Dogwood Blossoms members share a love for music and singing barbershop harmony. Members can experience the exhilaration of performing and singing with the Dogwood Blossoms. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range with the help of the chorus’ musical leaders and director.
The Dogwood Blossoms perform regularly throughout the community, offering their talent for entertainment at civic events and charitable functions. Besides presenting an annual show, the chorus performs each year at Ye Olde Mill and The Dan Emmett Music & Arts Festival.
