Shades of Harmony members ready to perform Shades of Harmony is a women’s a capella show chorus and a registered chapter of Sweet Adelines International.  Our members share a love of music, a commitment to our community, a passion for entertainment and a dedication to self-improvement through education.  

Sweet Adelines chapters are committed to musical education  so that each member can become the best possible musician.  Education is provided weekly at rehearsals by the director and her assistants, but also by professional coaches hired by the chorus, and by regional weekend events held during the year. For members who want to challenge themselves outside the chorus, there are opportunities to form quartets,  to enroll in the  Director Certification Program, to learn to arrange music in the barbershop style, or to assume administrative roles.  Not only does Shades of Harmony provide a way to showcase our musical abilities, it also offers opportunities to grow professionally. There are always openings on our leadership team.

Shades of Harmony win Most Improved at regional competitionWe welcome women of all ages who can sing (or can learn to sing) four-part a cappella music.  Holding your part against the other three voices and the ability to memorize your music (we do not hold sheet music during performances) are essential skills.

We give about 20 public performances throughout the year at nursing homes, street fairs, private parties, civic events, and other local affairs, as well as an annual show.

We rehearse weekly, year-round, every Tuesday evening from 7:00-9:30 PM, at the Whitehall School in Williamstown, NJ.  Come join us at a rehearsal to see what we're all about!  Visit a rehearsal.
