Scenic City Chorus Has Annual Show Sept. 30

Thursday, August 24, 2017

For over 50 years, Scenic City Chorus has entertained audiences in the surrounding Chattanooga area with a cappella, four-part harmony.  Its style of entertainment is family-friendly and refreshingly different. Audiences enjoy a contemporary spin on songs that include an array of modern pop, old standards, inspirational and patriotic favorites. Repertoire picks include songs like Irving Berlin's Blue Skies, Bobby Darin's, As Long As I'm Singing, The Supreme's Ain't No Mountain High Enough, Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and the well-known hymn It Is Well With My Soul. 

In addition to singing for a variety of community events and organizations, they put on an annual show. This year's show will be held on Saturday, Sept. 30, at Notre Dame High School at 4 p.m.

 "Radio Daze" is an opportunity for listeners to go behind the scenes for a day at radio station WSCC Talk Radio, 55 on the radio dial.

In addition to the performances of this award winning chorus, there will be a special guest quartet, "Martini". This quartet was crowned the 2012 Sweet Adelines International Championship Quartet.

Show tickets are adults $20, seniors (65+) and children (12 and under) $15. Call 284-7069 or go to www.sceniccitychorus.com to order tickets. The after show, Afterglow, will be held in NDHS cafeteria with a catered meal and even more entertainment. Tickets are $15 for adults and seniors and $10 for children. Afterglow tickets must be purchased before Sept. 28. Only 100 seats are available.  

Scenic City Chorus has been a chartered member of Sweet Adeline International since 1962. Sweet Adelines International is a respected worldwide organization of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education, competition and performance. This independent, nonprofit music education association is one of the world's largest singing organizations for women, boasting 23,000 members. 

Members extend over five continents and belong to more than 500 choruses and 1,200 quartets. Sweet Adeline choruses and quartets sing a cappella, four-part harmony music, barbershop style. The music includes special arrangements of today's ballads, classic songs, popular show tunes and mainstream music. Members say that singing the powerfully balanced sounds of barbershop harmony provides a rich, rewarding experience that changes their lives and helps women find their voices on the risers and in their everyday lives.  

Scenic City Chorus has grown from a small chorus to a large chorus over the past 55 years. Its current director, Jennifer Cooke, hails from Nashville and is a member of the International Board of Sweet Adelines, Inc. She was recently voted "Coach of the Year" for Region 4 in 2017.  She was also given the title of Master Director and the chorus was given the title Master Singers at last year's Region 4 competition in Lexington, Ky.

The Scenic City Chorus members work every week improving their skills to obtain an even higher score at next year's competition.  They meet every Monday evening at Spring Creek Baptist Gymnasium, 1312 Spring Creek Road, from 6:30-9:30 p.m.  They welcome new members of all ages to share the love of singing four-part harmony.  

Scenic City Chorus is a 501©(3) organization. They are partnered with WTCI and are members of the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA. For the past 80 years they’ve shown their stripes in this matter - 170,000 acres seized at LBL, countless acreage taken in the Tennessee River Valley. Land taken for coal and nuclear sites. All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)
