    A Fabulous Celebration!
    A great big THANK YOU to all our friends and family who came out to celebrate our 40th anniversary!  Our Forty & Fabulous show was such an amazing event and a great way to honor our many years of harmony in the Richmond area.  Our special guests, Throwback, wowed the crowd with their amazing harmonies and helped bring us back in time with some amazing songs.  Our newest quartet, 3 Nice Girls, made their debut performance and knocked it out of the park!  Crowd favorites Vocal Odyssey showed the audience how amazing it is to sing with your friends each and every week, while REV'L, second place medalists in Region 14, jazzed it up with a few great numbers.  And, of course, the full chorus sang their hearts out with tons of new songs.  It was a celebration that was not to be missed and we're so glad that we could share it with so many people!

    Even though the show is over, there's no rest for us!  Next, we'll transition to Christmas/Holiday songs and then continue our contest preparation, which will include our chorus retreat in January, a number of coaching sessions this winter, and our contest weekend in the Spring.

    Interested in bringing some of this fun to YOUR next event?  The chorus, a small ensemble, or one of our quartets are available for private engagements including parties, ceremonies, receptions, and events.   We can customize the show for your event, space, and budget!  Go to Contact > Book Us  to learn more about bringing the Greater Richmond Chorus to you!

    If you're interested in learning more about singing with the Greater Richmond Chorus, be sure to come to one of our Monday night rehearsals or guest nights!  We'll post those dates in the Events section on our website.  You can also email membership@grcsings.com for more details.

    Until We Meet Again...

    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."

    Vera Wins on the International Stage!
    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!
