About Greater Cleveland Chorus

Greater Cleveland Chorus

Greater Cleveland Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 70 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of the greater Cleveland area.

Performance

The main purpose of Greater Cleveland Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at our annual competitions. We also perform Singing Telegrams around Valentines Day and Mother's Day. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.

 

Education

In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.

History of Greater Cleveland Chorus

In 1986, the Greater Cleveland Chorus (GCC) was formed as a result of the merger of three local choruses-Cleveland East Suburban, Cuyahoga Valley and West Towns. The combined chorus numbered over 100 and rehearsed in a number of venues in the Cleveland area, currently at the United Methodist Church in Independence.

Sweet Adelines Region 17

The Greater Cleveland Chorus, whose 70 current members range in age from 30-85, is a member of Sweet Adelines International and is part of Region 17 which represents choruses from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania.

Regional Competition

Each spring, the choruses within a region gather to compete for the first place chorus in the region, which then allows that chorus to compete at the International Convention the following year. The choruses are judged on 4 categories-sound, music, expression and showmanship. Points are awarded in each of those categories and the winning chorus scores the highest number of points.
