The Hickory Tree Chorus chapter of Sweet Adelines International invites women singers to register for its free “Sing A Cappella Series” of vocal workshops. Women will learn to sing chord-ringing, fun-filled, four-part a cappella music, Wednesdays, January 10, 17, and 24 at 7:15 pm at The Shrine of St Joseph, 1050 Long Hill Road, Stirling, NJ.  The series kicks off with a ‘Happy Half Hour Mixer’ on January 10 at 7:15 pm.

Women singers, with or without prior vocal training, are invited to experience the joy of singing a cappella harmony. Each week guests will participate in vocal and physical warm-ups with the chorus and work on the Beatles’ renowned song ‘In My Life’, which the chorus is bringing back into its repertoire in honor of its 50th anniversary this year!   There will also be special vocal sessions guided by members of Hickory Tree Chorus’s trained music staff.  

Pam Hegarty, a current member of HTC whose first introduction to the chorus was through last year’s “Sing A Cappella Series” writes “If you enjoy singing and the idea of creating music with a group, try Hickory Tree Chorus.  I was greeted with such friendly support and encouragement that I knew I'd made the right choice. I learned a lot about music in those first weeks, and continue to learn more every week now that I'm an official member. Even more than music, this chorus is about camaraderie and joy. Come join us!”
