Skyline Harmony Chorus welcomes women of any age, race, nationality, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender expression to drop by for a visit! We enjoy meeting singers looking for a place to be part of a wonderful sisterhood filled with music, laughter, and camaraderie. We are central Virginia's chorus of choice for female vocalists who seek the challenge and joy of 4-part a cappella singing. We celebrate our membership's ethnic and cultural diversity, and passionately develop each member's vocal prowess through education, friendship, and humor. We are a chorus in sync, widely known for our breakthrough performances highlighted by creativity in music, script, and costumes.
If you’ve ever belted out a song in the shower, or you’ve been caught at a red light rocking out to your car radio, we have an opportunity for YOU!! We are Skyline Harmony Chorus, a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, the world’s largest a cappella women’s barbershop organization.
Our voice parts: We have a voice part suited to every woman, whether you sing low, high or in between. We will help you determine which of the following parts is best for your voice.
- Lead: This voice part carries the melody. The lead singer must be accurate, independent and able to sing her melody line so the other voices can tune and blend with her. The lead's range is from A below middle C to an octave above middle C.
- Tenor: The tenor provides the highest harmony part, singing above the leads and often tuning to the basses. The tenor's range is from the E above middle C to a high F.
- Baritone: This harmony part, which mainly sings below the lead, is characterized by unusual intervals and the internal notes that complete each chord. The baritone sings within the same range as the lead.
- Bass: This is the lowest harmony part, providing the foundation of the chords for the other three voice parts. A bass's range is from D below middle C to an E above middle C.
So come join in the fun!! Rehearsals are on Thursday nights from 6:45 to 9:30 at Aldersgate United Methodist Church!
