Small Ensembles

Sacramento Valley Chorus as a whole may be too large for your event. If so, try out one of our smaller groups of singers. We are proud of our quartets, our Extension Chords and the Encore Harmony Quartet. Be sure to contact the Performance Coordinators to find a group that will fit your needs. 



The Extension Chords is a group of 14 women who are active members of the Sacramento Valley Chorus, a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a barbershop singing organization. These women are available to perform in smaller venues that would not accommodate the larger 100+ member Sacramento Valley Chorus. We sing for a wide variety of groups, such as schools, retirement groups, and convalescent homes. Our purpose is to demonstrate our joy of singing and spread information about our uniquely American craft, four-part a cappella harmony in the barbershop tradition. We know we have succeeded when we notice the audience tapping their toes or singing along with us.

This musical group currently has no Director., but are doing an informal search.  The assistant director is Bonnie Flint.

This group is available for performances. Contact the Extension Chords Performance Manager.

General public contact: Bonnie Flint

Rehearsal day and time: Friday's @ 9:30 am
Rehearsal venue: Fair Oaks United Methodist Church

Encore Harmony is an a cappella double quartet. Members of Encore Harmony include a music teacher, a realty finance officer, and a retired sheriff’s deputy. Several of us are retired and semi-retired.  We’re busier than we were when we had full time jobs!

This experienced ensemble performs a variety of four-part harmony for special public and private events during the year including holiday entertaining. You may even see a musical instrument or two or three.

We perform at various venues during the year including State Fairs, Service Clubs, Military functions, convalescent and retirement homes, private parties, concerts and shopping malls . . . to name a few.

We invite you to enjoy the musical and comedic talents of the ladies of Encore Harmony.
