The Big Picture

As a competitive and performing chorus, we are always looking for ways to improve our vocal and performance skills. We rehearse every week because we're always getting ready for the next event, whether it is a local performance in the Fairfax, VA area, our fall show every other year, or an upcoming competition. Sweet Adelines members participate in competitions at regional and international levels. Judges give detailed feedback on our performances, which can be used as a learning tool to improve performance of the individual as well as the group. Competitions represent exciting opportunities to travel, perform and learn, and meet other Sweet Adelines from all around the world. Read more about Sweet Adelines International here.

There are more than 500 chorus chapters of Sweet Adelines across the globe, subdivided into regions; Vienna-Falls is part of Region 14. Our region is known as the "Heart of the Blue Ridge" and we cover a wide expanse of the country from northern Virginia to Tennessee, Georgia and the Carolinas. We believe wholeheartedly in music education and when you join us, you will find a wonderful array of classes available to you. Our master director, Claire, has taught workshops on music theory. All members of our music performance team also teach classes and coach other choruses as well as quartets. Some of the upcoming events available to members include leadership workshops and the Fall Music School.
