Fox Valley Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have around 40 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and from all parts of the Fox Valley area and beyond.
The main purpose of Fox Valley Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We also perform Singing Christmas cards. 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.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella 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.
CompetitionIn the spring of every year, Fox Valley Chorus participates in the Northern Lights Region 6 chorus competition. We won the overall chorus competition in Rochester, Minnesota in May, 2018, which made us eligible for the international competition in New Orleans, LA in September, 2019. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. Next spring our Regional Competition will be in Rochester, MN where we will compete once again for a chance to walk the international stage this time in Louisville, KY in October, 2023!
Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Fox Valley Chorus currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
Fox Valley Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a non-profit organization of approximately 30,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
