About PSC - Harmonizing
Pacific Sound, a championship chorus comprised of women singers from the
Puget Sound area, continually strives towards musical excellence. We invite
you to share the love of singing a cappella harmony with us.
Sound is directed by Susan Kegley. Susan is a founding member of
Pacific Sound, has been a member of
Sweet Adelines International for
more than 25 years, and has a huge array of accomplishments to her name.
North Pacific Region 13 holds its
annual Convention and Competition, which are important events in the life of a
Sweet Adelines chorus. Pacific Sound is no exception: we love to compete! In
fact, at the 2009 regional contest, Pacific Sound brought home their ninth First Place medals, qualifying
to compete at the International Convention held in Seattle in October, 2010.
We won our region again in 2013 and in 2015 and will compete in
Harmony Classic on the International
Stage in 2016.
quest for musical excellence has led us to great successes at
competitions...our very first in 1990 was grand indeed! We boasted 26 members
(including the director!), placed second over-all and won the First Place
Small Chorus Award.
Since that first
regional competition, Pacific Sound has gone on to win the regional contest and
compete at international competition seven times!
We are continually looking for talented, diverse women to be part
of our chorus and we'd love to have you
come and see what we're all
about. All we require is that you have a love of singing, an ear for
harmony, and a commitment to excellence. Vocal
training is provided at each rehearsal, and members receive an excellent vocal
education while participating in their shared joy of singing! We
welcome new members. Please join us at a rehearsal Tuesdays from 7- 9:30 pm in Bellevue at the
First United Methodist
Church. . Youth Members: We encourage young women ages 25 or younger to apply as Youth Members of our chorus.
Highnotes of Barbershop
Barbershop harmony is produced by four vocal parts sung a
cappella, (i.e. without the use of instrumental
accompaniment). Rooted in American history, barbershop is
nostalgic, sweet, colorful and dramatic. It can be sung by
either informally "tagging" with quartets or by staging
formal, full chorus performances, complete with choreography
Pacific Sound Chorus is a part of
Sweet Adelines International, an educational, non-profit organization
promoting four-part, barbershop singing for women. More than
30,000 women -- business professionals, homemakers, students
and educators, ages 18 to 80 -- are members of the world's
largest singing organization for women.
