From the first membership party I went to I knew I had to be a part of this fabulous chorus! I signed up that night and am now in my 9th year. I sing bass, am a member of Diversion quartet and sing and dance on the front row. I don't have a musical background, I didn't sing in high school, college or church. I just sang for me - in the car, in the shower and everywhere in between! I highly encourage any lady out there who likes to sing to come and visit us. You owe it to yourself to find out more about Emerald City Chorus! I guarantee it will change your life, as it has mine!

You, too, can join this amazing group of women. Don't let your lack of musical knowledge hold you back! If you have the desire to sing and perform - Emerald City Chorus will help you attain that goal. I came into the group with a limited musical background. I just sang in the car with the radio! Now I'm on the front row - singing and dancing with the best women around! In joining Emerald City Chorus - I have found life-long friendships and grown as a singer/performer. Come join us!!! You know you want to!

At first when a co-worker asked me to come to a rehearsal of Sweet Adelines, I literary thought it was a bunch of old ladies. When I came, I fell in love with the style of singing that I ended up staying and that has been almost 16 yrs. I even got my sister involved and our Mother got to hear us sing before she passed away 15 yrs ago. I have been in several quarters and I am now singing baritone with Perfect Storm! I am a charter member of the chorus and have served on several position in the chorus and currently Events Manager, If I had known about Sweet Adelines out of high school I would have joined a lot sooner. If you enjoy singing as much as I do, it's for every age group 13-99 years old.

2018 Testimonial from Jan Hopkins
Do you feel that your singing voice is an extension of yourself, that music is a whole other dimension of your personality? I have felt like that since childhood and have always sought ways to be musical, from exchanging songs with my best friend on her swing-set as a child, to singing in college groups, church groups, community theatre, and Sweet Adelines. Emerald City Chorus of Sweet Adelines International satisfies that musical muse I carry around inside me.

Dear Ms. Alterman: I wish to extend my thanks for the lovely time I had at the Bingo on Saturday. I was surprised and delighted when I won the Kitchen Basket. You have a great team and the evening went off flawlessly. Thanks again for my lovely gift!

Emerald City Chorus is my lifeline! As a charter member of this chorus I've enjoyed helping it grow and become an exciting and vibrant source of the all American art form of Barbershop music here in Wichita. I have made lifetime friends and learned so much. I can also say that I have achieved much more confidence as a singer and as a leader in the chorus administration over the years. It keeps me young and I recommend it to any singer seeking an outlet for their talent. Rachel Klein, bass
