Women who like to sing have everything they need to join the fun with Red RockAppella. The popular chorus will host an open house Monday, Sept. 25, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at West Sedona School, Room 604, 570 Posse Ground Road.
Under the direction of Jeanie Carroll, music teacher and local performer, the chorus will perform several songs to demonstrate how four-part barbershop harmony works. Guests will learn a simple song and, by the end of the evening, will be singing along together in beautiful harmony. New friends, great music and a wonderful time are in store. Light refreshments will be available.
Red RockAppella is a chapter of Sweet Adelines, an international nonprofit music education organization for women. Any woman of average singing ability, even if she has had no vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range. Knowledge of musical theory isn’t necessary. The Sweet Adelines is a music education organization, so this, and voice development and coaching, are among the many valuable member benefits.
Although the organization is about singing, performing and education, these are just a few of its rewards. Members also find that the chorus is a source of genuine friendships, increased self-confidence and the invaluable motivation and inspiration of others.
In addition to promoting harmony and friendship among women, Red RockAppella performs regularly throughout the community, offering its talent for entertainment at civic events and charitable functions. An annual show, performances in all seasons, and a holiday “singing card” event are just some of the activities the chorus holds throughout the year.
Red RockAppella meets every Monday from 6:30 to 9 p.m., with rehearsals alternating between locations in West Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek, for music, fellowship and fun. Visitors are always welcome.
