STIRLING, NJ - Women singers can take advantage of free singing lessons set to be offered by The Hickory Tree Chorus chapter of Sweet Adelines International on August 1 and 8, beginning at 7:15 p.m. each evening, at the The Shrine of St. Joseph.

The 'Sing A Capella' workshops will feature instruction in chord-ringing, fun-filled, four-part a cappella music, Each week guests will participate in vocal and physical warm-ups and work on a new song with the chorus.

“If you enjoy singing and the idea of creating music with a group, try Hickory Tree Chorus," said Pam Hegarty, whose first introduction to the chorus was through the 'Sing A Cappella Series'. "I was greeted with such friendly support and encouragement that I knew I’d made the right choice. I learned a lot about music during the series and continue to learn more now that I’m an official member. As much as music, this chorus is about camaraderie and joy.”
