From the Heartland:
We are the Ohio Heartland Chapter of Sweet Adelines International, located in Delaware, Ohio. Our membership are from all walks of life and represent women who love to sing from many cities surrounding Delaware. In additional to being part of the International Organization we are also a part of Sweet Adelines Region #4 which compromise choruses from Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
We recently celebrated our 40th Birthday as a Chapter of Sweet Adelines!
Our chorus has a history of being involved with our local communities. We recently gave the reins to our local YMCA for taking charge of the Summer Harmony In The Park Series. Check the summer schedule under the Harmony in the Park page!
In addition we have produced annual shows and entertain at special events, holidays, birthdays or special family occasions.
Our new director, Cindy Carter, comes to us with 35 yrs Barbershop experience, in both Sweet Adelines and Harmony Inc. She has been a Certified SAI Director since 2007 and has directed choruses in Sweet Adelines and Harmony, Inc. She found Barbershop while in College at Bowling Green State Univ. as a Composition and Theory Major. She has competed in quartets in both organizations in Bari, Lead, and Bass. She currently sings Lead in her Harmony, Inc. quartet, Sound Investment, which competed at International Competition in Louisville, KY in 2015. Cindy loves teaching vocal production in rehearsals and through Personal Vocal Instruction (PVI's). We are excited for the future and look forward to improving and growing in 2018!
