About the Bay Area Showcase Chorus:
Bay Area Showcase Chorus is a vibrant, award-winning ensemble of women singers committed to creating musical magic in every performance. We embrace healthy competition and enjoy finding creative ways to share our passion for 4-part harmony in the barbershop style. We are dedicated to continuous improvement in a joyful environment of mutual respect, friendship, and fun.
Bay Area Showcase Chorus has been entertaining the Bay Area with a cappella music, barbershop harmony style , since 1956. The chorus, which is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International , has a reputation for musical excellence. In April 2008, the chorus won its tenth first place medal in regional competition.
The 135 women who are members of the chorus commute from 17 counties and more than 50 communities - from San Francisco to Monterey, east to Sacramento, one even coming from as far as New Zealand! - to sing with our high-caliber performing chorus. Members include business and professional women, homemakers, retirees, and students. Ages have ranged from 14 to beyond telling. Anyone who visits the chorus, or attends one of our shows, soon discovers that we provide an outlet for a diverse array of women who like to sing and dance.
