Chapter Chat for February 2024
February began with some initial choreo coaching with Region 12's very own Julie Baxter, who is always such a pleasure to learn from and work with. Next we had a weekend retreat with international faculty's visual performance coach Judy Pozsgay. She fine-tuned our moves and helped guide the chorus toward a more unified presentation of sound and movement. We also got some unexpected practice in focus since the group on the other side of our ballroom wall had a live band playing for part of the afternoon. It was a "frenzy of sound"! 😊 Afterwards we had a tasty dinner, a bunch of wonderful member performances, and then some entertaining games, including a photo booth.

Sweet Adeline members are so fortunate to be part of a community that values continuous learning and growth, as well as camaraderie, and SVC looks forward to the many musical adventures that lie ahead. Here's to a harmonious journey together!

SVC was happy to get back to rehearsals in January after the holiday break. The highlight of the month was a two-day coaching session with Caitlin Castelino, whose contagious enthusiasm and impressive knowledge of vocal technique was truly inspiring! Caitlin did some voice-placing the first night, and she then taught us how to find a better start to singing each phrase by doing a 3-dimensional breath, which makes use of all the space available for sound. She and Kristi tweaked the song arrangements a bit as they determined how best to strengthen singer unity and forward motion. And we had fun doing it!

The other news from us is that we're restarting our daytime chorus, "The Extension Chords". We're excited to have 17 members signed up so far who will meet twice per month for learning, singing, and socializing.

Sacramento Valley had fun singing on the Voices of California's show at the beginning of December, and then later we sang at the Capitol Rotunda to a crowd of folks who came out on a rainy Monday to get into the holiday spirit with us.

Happy 2024 to our sister choruses, may this year bring lots of new members to each of our choruses!

Chapter Chat for October/November 2023
In October, Sacramento Valley Chorus had several visitors join us as we continue to work on our new uptune and also our holiday music. The highlight in October for SVC was welcoming two new members, Elizabeth Dyer, baritone, who recently interim-directed men’s chorus Voices of California, and also Eris Schneider, baritone, who is joining us as a young woman who loves harmony. They both bring fresh voices and energy to our chorus which we are so very happy to have. 


We want to send our warmest congratulations to both Gusto! quartet and Diablo Vista Chorus for so well-representing Region12 at this year's international contest! 7 of our members dueled with DVC and we are so proud of them!

SVC had a wonderful first month with our new director, Kristi Bispo. We've already started work on a fun new contest song, plus we're singing holiday music in preparation for an upcoming appearance on a holiday show put on by our local men's barbershop chorus, Voices of California.

A bunch of us attended the recent AIM classes and Pep Rally, and even though many of us have seen Kim Vaughn before, she always has something to teach that reinvigorates the enthusiasm we share for barbershop chord ringing. Thank you Kim and the R12 Education Team!

Chapter Chat for March
This month SVC has been working to refine our performance skills, with wonderful guidance from North Metro's Erin Howden. This means getting into a mindset of the emotion of a song, which in turn can help automatically refine our body movements and facial expressions to most authentically convey the message of the music to our audience members, and all the while still blending with the voices around us!

We took a quick time-out from rehearsing to make a video for the 'celebration of life' event for one of our former members, Betty Hamzy, who recently passed away. Since we were unable to attend the event due to a scheduling conflict, we sent the video to her family with a couple of songs and memories of Betty which will be shown at her celebration of life event.

Also, many of you know long-time Sweet Adeline member Nancy Thompson from R12's MVC, POP, and SVC choruses, or from her part-time radio hosting of the Human Voice Show. She recently had hip surgery and is recovering at her home in the University Retirement Community of Davis, CA. SVC sends our love to you, Nancy!

We ended the month of March with a celebration of love and appreciation for our director, Dede Nibler, by making signs to hold up and surprise her! She has been, and still is, an inspiring mentor and teacher to us all. Thank you, Dede! 💕

February was another busy month for SVC. In addition to getting ready for our performance in May, we had several pick-up quartets get together, rehearse for a few weeks, and then deliver Singing Valentines to members of the Sacramento community. It was so heart-warming to see how happy folks were to get a singing gift.

Recently we began looking for a new rehearsal facility within Sacramento County so that we meet the grant requirements of the city. We currently rehearse at a church in nearby Yolo County, but we hope to find our new home soon. The city of Sacramento has been, and still is, very supportive of us and the local Arts community, and we are extra thankful for their sponsorship after these past few years of the pandemic.

We ended the month with some fabulous coaching from the wonderful Erin Howden of North Metro Chorus. She’s always thinking ahead and trying new things, which makes it extra fun to have her with us.

After our Christmas Show in December, we continued the fun by singing carols at the Capitol Rotunda, where we dressed up in our glittery finest and joyfully sang for the many passers-by. The following two weeks we delivered Christmas grams to folks from New York to Washington! We were able to advertise for this by having a quartet featured on our local channel 31 on Good Day Sacramento. It was a music-filled holiday season, and we were so thankful to be able to sing together as much as we did this past year. And best of all, we have 4 new members starting 2023 with us!

The month of July is behind us. What a fun and exciting month it was. 

We started the month with a party to celebrate our fabulous Jannie, who married her sweetheart Ken on a family cruise in June. We honored our in-resident Charter Founding member Dar Haag, who celebrated her 91st birthday this year. We celebrated Dede's birthday with cards and hugs, and we acknowledge our active members who have been Sweet Adelines for over 50 years.

April was a busy month for Sacramento Valley Chorus as we prepared for Video Contest on May 14th. We are happy to be back on the risers again. We feel so fortunate to be able to rehearse at our Center of Spiritual Awareness rehearsal site on Wednesday nights. The positive words hanging from the rafters inspire us and make it impossible for us not to smile. We worked on the contest set and our first Friends and Family show in 2 years. May 1st.
(We wish all the best to our competing quartet Whatever4)

We welcomed a new member Tamra Perez - baritone, who was a past member of Sacramento Valley Chorus and is a delight to have back in the fold. 

And we had a special guest this month during Spring Break, Melody, Dede's lovely granddaughter. She directed the chorus for one song, a budding director for sure. 

We wish everyone a wonderful May.

We are so happy to be back together. The rehearsal hall is filled with an excited hum as we greet each other every week. With each step up onto the risers, we get stronger not only physically but also emotionally. There is no better place to be but back surrounded by our riser sisters and feeling the hug of four-part harmony while ringing chords.  
This past month, the highlight at SVC was a 3-day coaching session with Ryan Heller: learning, singing, and laughing – what could be more fun than that? We so enjoyed the opportunity to experience Ryan doing what he does best!
The ‘lowlight’ this month was that our new riser trailer was broken into, and our new sound system, keyboard & stand were stolen, so we are once again looking for a new rehearsal hall since it appears we really do need a place where we can store everything inside a building. We choose to be resilient in the face of setbacks and are moving forward optimistically!

Upcoming events in April include:
  •  April 2 - Bingo Fundraiser
  •  April 4 - Social Event of Quilting & Crafts
  •  April 13 - Book Club Meeting
  •  May 1 - Friends & Family Show
All events are open to the Region.  See our calendar here:

Lastly, we welcomed new members: Cindy Taurone (lead). We are thrilled to be moving forward and adding a wonderful new singer to our chorus!

February ended on a high note as we met (on the risers!) for a full Saturday of singing and choreography. North Metro’s Erin Howden had previously met over zoom with our dedicated choreo team and given them some creative ideas for our uptune.

Our Costume Chair, Valerie Richie, organized a plan for our upcoming rehearsals that involves having us wear a specific costume piece each week so that we can be sure everyone has the appropriate pieces on hand, and that the size & fit are still consistent with an attractive, unified chorus appearance.
And to add to all the usual fun, our beloved and incredibly high-energy director offers regular small-group voice lessons to all interested members. And that’s many of us! We love having the opportunity to build our skill level and confidence, thank-you Dede Nibler!

The highlight for us this month was a trip that many of us took to Honolulu to sing as part of Hawaii’s annual Pearl Harbor Parade. The friendly people, the outdoor rehearsals in the park, the always-changing weather, the trolley ride down the main boulevard – all combined into a memorable and very enjoyable trip! Plus our earlier dress rehearsal in Sacramento made the local CBS news - check it out:

Sacramento Valley Chorus gave ourselves a much-needed Christmas present this year – a new ‘gently used’ trailer to store our risers! Many thanks to member Joanna Davis for finding a trailer that will give us a little extra storage room since our current rehearsal venue did not have any extra space available. Also, kudos to member Cindy Henry and her husband Phil for their help and many suggestions about how the trailer can be modified (by Phil) in order to make loading and unloading the risers a bit easier.

Though regular chorus rehearsals were on hold in December for the holiday break, some of us still got together for our monthly book club meeting (most recent read was Summer Island), our social “Crafty Women” (for quilters, sewers, etc), and a new fundraiser this year: a Tamale Making class held by the Cooking Chicas (Dede Nibler, Angie Yokay, Margaret Leggett, Kirby Cass). See our Facebook page for all of the fun photos!
Finally, congratulations to members Stefanie Carson for achieving her 50-year membership with Sweet Adelines, and also to Shirley Kout for achieving her 60-year membership. You are both amazing and wonderful women!

KCRA 3 - Sacramento Valley Chorus in Hawaii for 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor attack

KCRA 3 - Sacramento Valley Chorus in Hawaii for 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor attack

Sacramento Valley Chorus in Hawaii for 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor attack


The Sacramento Valley Chorus is in Hawaii to mark the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. All 30 ladies are singing to preserve history.

They want to raise awareness to help young people learn more about that fateful day when the Japanese Navy Air Service attacked the United States naval base in Hawaii, killing more than 2,400 Americans.

Many of the singers have loved ones who were in World War Two.

Chorus director Dede Nibler says she is proud to represent the West Coast in Hawaii.

They've been busy rehearsing to take part in several performances this week.

They plan to sing their hearts out on the streets of Honolulu to honor veterans and remember those who have passed.
On Wednesday, the chorus from Sacramento will perform on the U.S.S. Missouri.

The group received an invitation to go to the Pearl Harbor anniversary three years ago, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, they had to postpone the trip until now.

"Everyone that is singing has someone in their life that has served, either a father, a grandfather, a brother an uncle," said Dede Nibler, Sacramento Valley Chorus director. "So it's not about us so much as it is about the history... It's very emotional for me. My father was in the Second World War and I think this happens to many. They don't really talk about it. I think it's that whole idea that they come home, and they want to forget about it, and yet we can't forget about it. We have to continue to keep it alive. I want to keep my father's memory alive."

Oahu has experienced flooding from heavy rain, but organizers have told them the parade is happening, rain or shine.

Sweet Adelines International Board of Directors Statement

 Date Posted: Sat, Jun 20 2020
Sweet Adelines International Board of Directors Statement
Dear Sweet Adelines International Members,
The Sweet Adelines International Board of Directors met June 10-13 and with unanimous decisions, took action on several important issues that affect our members and how we all can better live out our organization's guiding principles. Here is a statement from the board regarding those decisions:
In accordance with our guiding principles on the Culture of Belonging and Diversity & Inclusion (D & I), Sweet Adelines International rejects any song with racist lyrics, messages or history, and we consider them unacceptable for performance in any setting.

Therefore, we commit to actions including but not limited to:
  • Changing our contest rules so that these songs will be unacceptable for performance in any contest setting. Performance of these songs in the 2021 Regional competition will result in a score penalty. Beginning with the 2021 International competition, it will result in disqualification. The phased implementation is to ensure that all members fully understand how to evaluate the lyrics, message, and history of a song before the disqualification penalty takes effect.
  • Establishing education and resources to teach our members how to determine if a song has a racist lyric, message or history. To support this, the development and release of the Song Evaluation Tool component of the D & I Chorus Toolkit is being accelerated. A more detailed schedule for its release will be shared the week of July 6, 2020.
  • Creating an ongoing, living database to which members can continually refer and share information regarding songs that have racist lyrics, messages or history.

In addition to the decisions related to music with racist lyrics, the Board unanimously voted to establish the email as a way for members to confidentially contact us to share their concerns within the Culture of Belonging and D & I guiding principles.

To ensure that the work of the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force continues, the Board also took action to create a body to serve as the permanent stewards of this important work. This body will be known as the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council and will be created with wide representation of our membership.

As these initiatives are developed, additional details will be provided. We know that you have many questions about this, and we welcome your thoughts and ideas. Please contact us at

In Harmony,
International Board of Directors

Thérèse Antonini, President-Elect

Sacramento Valley Chorus - Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Sacramento Valley Chorus - Celebrates 40th Anniversary

On October 30, 1979, a few women met and chartered with Sweet Adelines International to form the Sacramento Valley Chorus.  One of the original founding members, Dar Haag, is still an active member of SVC.  They competed in the next regional competition in 1980, and proudly came in 15th place out of 31 choruses. They were jazzed! 

The rest is history.  SVC has competed on the International stage four times: once in 1990, and three times in a row 2015, 2017 and 2019.  In addition to competing, the chorus sang at Carnegie Hall in 2012, and performs annually at shows, local events, Singing Valentines, etc. 

One thing hasn’t changed in 40 years, SVC loves to sing and welcomes women of all ages to join us in singing this wonderful art form of four-part a cappella harmony.  Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings, 6:30 - 9:30 pm, Arena Christian Church, 4027 No. Freeway Blvd., Sacramento, CA

Sacramento Valley Chorus - Sweet Adelines

Fall Festival Friends and Family Show - September 7, 2019

by Dick Frantzreb

The Sacramento Valley Chorus is celebrating its 40th year as a chartered member of Sweet Adelines International, the women’s barbershop organization. And a great way for them to celebrate this anniversary year is by having the opportunity to compete in Sweet Adelines’ 73rd Annual International Convention and Competition coming up September 16-21 (2019) in New Orleans. It was their success in competitions last year that earned the Sacramento Valley Chorus (SVC), under the leadership of Master Director Dede Nibler, the invitation to compete at International this year ? an honor they had in 2015 and 2017, as well.

As you become familiar with barbershop organizations, you quickly learn that barbershop choruses (and quartets, for that matter) are all about competition. Of course, there’s also the joy of singing, the camaraderie, and the thrill of performing. But barbershoppers ? at least at the highest levels where the Sacramento Valley Chorus currently resides ? embrace competition as a way to refine their art and pursue new paths of creativity.

A week or two before major competitions, SVC has put on a “Friends and Family Show.” It’s an opportunity to show off for their biggest fans, most of whom won’t be able to follow them to a distant city for the actual competition. More importantly, though, this special show gives the chorus an opportunity to test themselves against a live audience, and discover last-minute ways to refine their performance.

This time, the “Fall Festival Friends and Family Show” took place on a Saturday afternoon at Sacramento’s Arena Christian Center. Chorus member, Becky Garcia, served as emcee and welcomed the several hundred audience members.  She went on to explain a bit about SVC’s history and and let us know that in the presentation of their “package,” we would be getting a “taste of what it would be like to be at International.” As Garcia was speaking, the 84 members of the chorus entered in a single line from stage right in their attractive new costumes (below). Those at the front of the line stopped after filling the stage, facing stage left, and they presented cover for the rest of the chorus as they took to the risers behind them. As I watched these 15 or so ladies, with stage make up, carefully coiffed and with a pose that reflected discipline and confidence, their smiles reminded me of the way synchronized swimmers present themselves before entering the water.  To read the full article........

Sacramento Valley Chorus

'Tis the Season To Be Jolly - December 9, 2017

by Diane Boul
What do you think of when you think of a choir or a chorus? Church choirs? Amateur community choirs? Maybe children’s choirs or one of the large professional choirs? These are all groups of people that come together to sing and, often, to entertain. They come in all types: all men, all women, mixed groups, professional-level, purely amateur, some better than others.

Then there’s the Sacramento Valley Chorus, directed by Dede Nibler. They are pure theater! They sing, dance, and act, all with professionalism, sophistication, and with so much enthusiasm and fun. Sacramento Valley Chorus (SVC) is an award-winning, high-energy chorus of women dedicated to musical excellence in the performance of four-part a cappella harmony in the barbershop style. In 2017 they represented Region 12 at the Sweet Adelines International competition in Las Vegas, placing 14th.  That’s 14th in the world of Sweet Adeline choruses!

One of the four categories on which SAI competitors are judged is expression: this includes matched open vowels, diction, and execution of interpretive plan, use of barbershop style and vocal drama, and emotional communication. If more choruses would adhere to these qualities in their singing, there’d be much larger audiences listening to much better choruses.

Most choruses don’t have a distinctive sound that identifies them, but SVC does. It’s the barbershop sound that is revered by many and appreciated by so many more. Some folks just like that distinctive sound, while others delight in the tight harmonies that make this music difficult to sing. All barbershop groups (men and women) sing in four parts: tenor, lead, baritone, and bass, from highest voice to lowest, but these do not correspond well to classical voice parts. Each of the four parts has its own role: generally, the lead sings the melody, the tenor harmonizes above the melody, the bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes, and the baritone completes the chord, usually below the lead.

According to the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS), "Barbershop music features songs with understandable lyrics and easily singable melodies.” May sound simple, but if you have time, read what else the BHS and others say about the complexities of the barbershop tone and chords. The history of how barbershop evolved is really interesting and sounds very scientific and complicated. What you hear is no accident!

The elements of the barbershop style and the names of the voice parts are the same for both men and women, but the ranges in each part are different, of course. The ideal balance in a chorus is about 40% bass, 30% lead, 20% baritone and 10% tenor singers. Fortunately, there are many arrangers with the skills to include the barbershop chord structure in their arrangements.  Today's barbershop quartets and choruses sing a variety of music from all eras — show tunes, pop, and even rock music have been arranged for choruses and quartets, making them more attractive to younger singers. I was disappointed that no mention was made in the program of these talented arrangers.

The defining characteristic of the barbershop style is the ringing chord, one in which certain overtones of the four voices reinforce each other, sometimes so strongly that the overtone is perceived by the listener as a distinct tone, even though none of the voices are perceived as singing that tone. Wrap your head around that idea!! Barbershop music is always a cappella, because listening to anything but the other three voices interferes with a performer's ability to tune with the precision required.

“Tis the Season to Be Jolly,” Sacramento Valley Chorus’s concert at the Oak Hill Church in Folsom on this day, mixed the finals package from their competition in Las Vegas with an impressive array of Christmas songs, plus three costume changes along the way. Oak Hill Church was perfect for this group, because they have a huge following.  This spacious hall accommodated all of them, and it was almost full. There wasn’t a problem acoustically, because the singers were heavily miked with professional equipment, so the sound was full and even. I noticed how dressed up members of the audience were. This was a nice change from the casual attire I see at most concerts  definitely not a jeans affair.

(Click here to open the program in a new window.)

Emcee Gwen Marks asked the audience to imagine the Road to OzVegas, another tale of Oz, which was a parody on the Oz plays, including The Wizard of Oz,The Wiz, and Wicked.  The Oz characters were well-represented, including Dorothy (director Dede Nibler); the Tin Man; the Lion; the Munchkins; the Wicked Witch of the West; Glinda, the Good Witch of the South (or the North if you go back to the original movie), etc.

This was a really creative skit about auditioning a new baritone for the competitive quartet of witches. Beginning with “Pure Imagination,” the skit progressed to “Move on Down the Road” as the auditions went on. This actually made sense if you were there, and it was hilarious how they continued to weave the Oz songs into their parody, including the revivalist, “Don’t Nobody Bring Me No Bad News”; “Popular,” Glinda’s teaching moment for the quartet; and the finale, “Brand New Day.”  Then the frenetic characters, along with the crazy, costumed, backup chorus, left the stage. This could have been the end of the show, and we would all have gone home happy; but no, SVC was just getting started!

The next introduction was to guest artists, Artistic Licensea quartet from the barbershop chorus, Voices of California (another Sacramento group worth hearing). Their “Silver Bells” rang out in this hall:  just beautiful. “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” brought us beautiful harmonies with broad vocal ranges. This piece was arranged by Deke Sharon, heralded as "The Father of Contemporary A Cappella."

“I’ll Be Home for Christmas” was arranged by bass, Jason Dyer, and featured him. In this number, I was particularly impressed by the way they all seemed to breathe together. It was obvious that they were listening to each other and adjusting as necessary to keep the voices in balance. “We Three Kings of Orient Are,” written in a jazzy, rock rhythm with beatboxing accompaniment was one of my favorites. I never realized barbershop singing could be so versatile.

Jason then talked about Joseph being somewhat forgotten in the Christmas story.  So, from Joseph’s point of view, they sang “Joseph’s Lullaby,” written by Christian rock band, MercyMe, and featuring baritone, Gabe Caretto. This was a touching lullaby, so smooth and lilting and impeccably sung. This ought to be in the repertoire of more choruses. Completing their set, Artistic License sang a medley of Santa Clause-themed songs. I really didn’t care for the barbershop arrangement of this piece.

Emcee Gwen then told us that SVC had a quartet qualified to represent Region 12 (Northern California) in the International Competition for quartets. Called Fresco, Sandy, Megan, Margaret and Marriann entertained us with the upbeat, “Come On, Get Happy,” a very expressive “Chances Are,” and a scatty number, “Nobody But Me.”

Then the two quartets, Artistic License and Fresco, sang as a double quartet. Their vocal blend was smooth, the harmonies very tight. This was interesting and perhaps a little unconventional, since barbershop choruses/quartets are not usually mixed, but it worked for me. 

The entire chorus returned to show us why they were 14th in the world at the 2017 Sweet Adelines International Competition, singing “Over the Rainbow” and “My Honey’s Lovin’ Arms,” both with choreography. (See YouTube, Contestant #14 Sacramento Valley Chorus for the live performance, complete with cartwheels.)

Intermission was an event with lots of items for sale, including gifts and snack food and drinks.

The chorus returned with “Angels We Have Heard on High,” and then the audience got a chance to sing a Christmas round with the chorus, along with a few other well-known carols. It was a rousing affair, because there were hundreds of people in the audience. I think they must all have been singing.

I regret to say that I had to miss the rest of the concert, but at 5:00 p.m., this concert (which started at 3:00 pm) was only a little more than half over. I had another engagement, so I had to leave. I missed the light and funny Christmas songs I’ve heard before, but I feel confident that they were done to the standards demanded by this group of women. I did want to hear the Whatever 4 quartet, another Region 12 quartet (you can hear them at and the SVC small ensemble, Extension Chords. I also missed one of my favorite Christmas songs, “Mary Did You Know?” Maybe it’ll turn up on YouTube, sung in the inimitable style of the Sacramento Valley Chorus!
