About Our Chorus
Founded in September 1972, the Mid-Lakes Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have about 20 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of southwest Michigan.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a capella 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. We also have educational opportunities provided by our region, usually twice a year. These "Harmony Weekends" can be one day or all weekend long with various topics of learning, and are a great way to meet other singers in the region and learn from other choruses.
Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus.The Mid-Lakes chorus currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them!
Our chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines, International, a non-profit organization of approximately 25,000 members in choruses and 600 quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We are also a member of Great Lakes Harmony Region 17
