Sacramento Valley Chorus (SVC) is more than just an a cappella ensemble, it is a family! We love getting together each week, and sharing friendships as well as great music!
Put the JOY of singing back into your life! Do you sing along with the radio? Do you like to sing harmony? Has it been a while since you sang and you miss the joy it brought then SVC is for you! Come join this high energy, award-winning chorus for an evening of singing and fun.
Becoming a member....SVC loves to have guests visit our rehearsals. We always welcome women who enjoy singing and would like to participate in a show chorus like ours. In order to get a good understanding of Sweet Adelines and SVC, we encourage our guest singers to visit several times so they can have a chance to “try it out” before they make a commitment.
During the first few visits, guests are provided with information about the Sweet Adelines organization and SVC and the expectations of membership. The Membership Team is available to answer questions. Songbooks are provided for use during the rehearsal, and guests are welcome to sing on the risers with the members unless the chorus is preparing for a performance. During those times, our guests become our audience, which is much appreciated.
Once a guest has decided that she would like to join us, the Membership Team assists her with the steps for becoming a member. An audition will be scheduled, and the guest will receive a copy of the audition song and a CD to practice with. Practice auditions can also be scheduled. The audition consists of singing your part in a quartet. We're a very supportive group, and will do everything we can to help you be successful.
Members of our chorus support guests throughout this process. We want our guests to feel comfortable, and also get to know more members each time they come. Bring a friend and come sing with us. It’s GREAT fun!
Rehearsal....Please plan on arriving between 6:15 and 6:30 pm so our Membership Team will have time to greet you before rehearsal starts. With all the activity on the risers, we keep the temperature cool in our rehearsal hall. We suggest that guests bring a coat or a sweater as the seating area tends to be cool. Once you join us on the risers, you'll probably want to shed that wrap!
