You are hereAbout Us
Dynamic. Diverse. Passionate.
The Hickory Tree Chorus is a dynamic women's chorus, with members of diverse musical backgrounds and experiences, who share a passion for singing, performing, learning, friendship and fun.
Our repertoire covers a lively mix of popular music — Broadway, Beatles, Jazz, Swing, holiday favorites, ballads, uptunes, and modern classics from the American Songbook — arranged in chord-ringing, four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop style, often by our Master Music Arranger and Director, Carolyn Schmidt.
We love to perform!
Each year we produce an annual show and perform at community and private events throughout the New Jersey area. The chorus is committed to vocal excellence and puts those skills to the test in an annual regional competition where it has medaled for more than thirty years. We are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International — a worldwide organization of more than 23,000 women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education, competition, and performance. The opportunities for friendship and camaraderie, travel and personal growth are limitless. We welcome women of all ages to visit and audition.
