A Sweet Adeline for 50 Years!

Marg Toole from the London Chorus is celebrating 50 years of being a Sweet Adeline.

We honoured her at the Regional weekend in Sarnia in early September.

Sweet Adelines International presetned her with her 50 year pin at the International Convention in New Orleans in mid September.

Congratulations Marg!


Visit from our RMT

Leslie Lennon from the Border Lakes Region 2 Management Team came out for a visit to the Chorus in September.  It was great to have here there.

Did you notice Julia's pin for being our Director for over 20 years?  Pretty cool, huh.


London Chorus in the Medals

The London Chorus placed First in the Mid-Size Division and 2nd Overall in the SAI Region 2 Contest last weekend.

Here we are on stage to perform following the contest.

We are SO proud of our performance and would like to thank our Master Director Julia Beadle for her guidance and support.

Thanks to all of our friends and families who cheer us on regularly!


Bring a Friend Night

We enjoyed ourselves at our "Bring a Friend" night last week to celebrate Sweet Adelines Open House.

The Chorus and our Guests learned a new tag, enjoyed a demonstration of the "Cups" song rhythms and a karate demonstration from 2 of our talented members.

The Chorus and our 2 Quartets - Imagine That and Everyday People - entertained our guest with a mini show before viewing the video of our time on the International Stage this past October.

Thanks to the organizers - Anne Norman, Brianna Fenton and Julia Beadle - for a wonderful night.


A Sell-Out Christmas Tea!

We had a wonderful crowd at our annual Christmas Tea on Saturday December 1.

Our guests were entertained by the Chorus, Everyday People, Imagine That and the Christmas Belles.

We had a rousing sing-song led by our Master Director, Julia Beadle.

Everyone enjoyed Tea, home-made Christmas Cookies and some shopping following the show.

Thanks to all who came out!

Region 2 Education Day in London

Erin Howden held an education and coaching day for Region 2 in London on May 26.  Topics covered included freeing yourself in your performance, use of hands, bringing emotion into your musical performance.

 


Visit from a Founding Member!

Alberta (Allie) Kay is a Charter and Founding Member of the London Chorus.  The Chorus was founded in 1954 and Allie sang with the Chorus prior to it being chartered with Sweet Adelines.  We are so grateful that she and her singing sisters started this wonderful Chorus for us to sing in today.

Allie came out to visit us on Wednesday with her son and daughter-in-law.  The Chorus and quartets Imagine That and Everyday People provided entertainment.

Allie recently celebrated her 100th birthday!  Singing keeps you young!
