Sacramento Valley Chorus has a history and reputation for continuous improvement that produces a quality arts program for members and the community year after year. In order to stay committed to singing and performing at the highest level possible, we compete each year in a regional contest. SVC has medaled (top three) twenty-four times in the past thirty-eight years. The chorus has qualified for Sweet Adelines International (SAI) Competition in 1989, 2015, 2017, and 2019.

Mission

To INSPIRE women of all ages to experience the joy of singing four part A cappella harmony

To EXCITE audiences with high energy, entertaining performances

To EDUCATE the membership and the community about barbershop singing as an art form

Needs

Good musical arrangements are an important part of the barbershop art form. Costs have tripled in this area due to changes in copyright requirements. The average cost for one song is $300.

In order to compete at the International level, SVC needs to hire international level coaches, meet travel-related expenses, and costuming needs. Coaching fees run at an estimated $7,500 per year. The Chorus traveled to Honolulu to participate in the 75th anniversary Pearl Harbor Memorial Day parade and ceremony in December 2021. Members payed their own travel expenses, but funds were needed to pay for travel and expenses of our director.

Young Women in Harmony is a philanthropic youth outreach program we support in the Sacramento Area. Donations and sponsorships help defray costs for providing services to young singers in our region. This includes providing scholarships for young women to attend Mountain Harmony Camp.

Angel Fund: This fund is available to help chorus members whose financial situation affects their ability to pay for travel and costumes.

Expanded Donor Base: We need help finding and keeping donors willing to support the arts by donating to Sacramento Valley Chorus. Increased donations will aid us in keeping membership dues affordable and will support the entertainment and educational programs offered to members and the community.
