The Greater Richmond Chorus is sad to share the news that we recently lost a beloved member of our singing family. Doris Gable was a long-time member of the chorus and always had a smile on her face! Here's a tribute to Doris from Donna, one of the many women who were lucky enough to get to know her!
"What a joy and privilege it was to sing baritone next to Doris. She knew the part and she knew it well, so passing songs while standing next to her was never a problem.
Doris was born in South Dakota, one of 6 children. She was valedictorian of her high school class, earning a bachelors and masters degree in music education. Her quiet and humble manner left us all surprised of her many accomplishments. She used her talents teaching school and in her church, directing the church choir, and teaching Sunday school
She enjoyed gardening, was an avid reader, working crossword puzzles and making her favorite pickles. Her advice to me was "don't get old, its no fun"
Doris, I'm glad we laughed, I am glad we loved, I'm glad we sang, oh how we sang."

|We’re so proud of our director, Vera Crouse, and her quartet Rendezvous for earning a second place medal during the 2017 Rising Star Quartet Contest! Held as a part of the weekend-long Sweet Adelines International Education Symposium in Baltimore, Rendezvous competed against 12 other quartets from all over the country. To be eligible to compete in this special contest, all members of the quartet must be under the age of 25 and perform a contest set consisting of two songs, one ballad and one uptune. Scoring followed the same guidelines as regional and international competitions. There were many GRC members and sisters from all over Region 14- Heart of the Blue Ridge in attendance to cheer them on in person, as well as many others rooting for them while watching the webcast. They even got to meet Deke Sharon! Congratulations to Vera and Rendezvous for an outstanding performance!|
