Why I joined SVC? I was a member with another chorus at the time and Judi Naill invited me to come to their show in Orangevale. I was so impressed by the beautiful sound of this much larger chorus as well as the kind of music they featured. The songs were not stereotypical barbershop music but a nice blend of pop, jazz and traditional. The joy in the music was evident in all the shiny faces as well. The following week I visited the chorus's rehearsal and three weeks later I passed my audition song. I haven't regretted the commitment of time and money since.
