A little bit about us:
Voices Northwest Chorus is the only chartered Sweet Adelines International Chorus in Snohomish County. VNW is comprised of 40+ women who range in age from 20 to 75 and perform the female version of the a cappella barbershop art form of singing. “It’s not your grandfathers’ barbershop these days” says Director Sue Beck. “The art form has changed, the education has changed and the contests have changed. “We expect a lot more from our hobby these days.”
Director Sue Beck started the Snohomish County chapter of Voices Northwest about four years ago. Every spring the chorus performs at their regional competition and every year they have placed in the top five. We also book fun performances, most recently at the Taste of Music Festival in Snohomish and at the Evergreen State Fair. During the holidays, we can be found caroling at the Outlet Mall in Marysville and on Argosy ships on Lake Washington.
Sandy Neal calls Voices Northwest not just a singing group, but a sisterhood. She joined three years ago but wishes it had been 20. Neal has sung in Anchorage & Spokane in competition as well as with the chorus in their two shows in Everett last year.
Voices Northwest is always seeking new members and our rehearsals are always open to the public. Join us on Mondays at Trinity Episcopal Church, 23rd & Hoyt, Everett at 7pm. Any woman who joins can expect to learn a lot about posture, resonance of the soft pallet, and the artistry and style of barbershop, an original American art form. Beyond that, there’s so much potential for developing your singing voice and singing competitively that “the sky’s the limit”.
