Piney Hills Harmony schedules Open House as part of global initiative

Piney Hills Harmony Chorus of Sweet Adelines is inviting area women to its rehearsal Thursday, Jan. 26, as part of a Global Open House.

Designed to better acquaint people with what Sweet Adelines has to offer in regard to membership, the Open House is scheduled during the chorus' regular rehearsal at 6 p.m. in the fellowship hall of the Presbyterian Church of Ruston.

All over the globe this month, Sweet Adelines International choruses are joining together in this "Teach the World to Sing" event. Sweet Adelines boasts approximately 25,000 members in more than 500 choruses in 12 countries.

Women of all ages who enjoy singing are invited to experience the exhilaration of performing and creating four-part harmony. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, can find a part that fits her voice range with the help of the chorus’ musical leaders. The music includes special arrangements of today’s ballads and upbeat songs, popular show tunes and even jazz. Members say that singing the satisfying sounds of barbershop harmony provides a rich, rewarding experience. Members of Sweet Adelines International share fun social activities, an enlarged circle of friends and exciting performance opportunities.
