Grand Mesa Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have 30 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of the Grand Junction area.
Performance The main purpose of Grand Mesa Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at an annual competitions. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you’re looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.
Education In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.
Competition In the spring of every year, Grand Mesa Chorus participates in the Region 8 chorus competition . Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year.
Quartets Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus.
Affiliation Grand Mesa Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines, International, a non-profit organization of approximately 30,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Women who like to sing and perform are invited to come to any Grand Mesa Chorus rehearsal any Tuesday. We begin rehearsal at 6:30 PM at the Redlands United Methodist Church.
