Friends & Family

April 29, 2018 - 11:10pm -- Amy Seid

How lucky are we to have such supportive friends and family who came out to be our test audience as we prepare for contest!  We hope they had as much fun as we did.  And what better way to end the afternoon than by having all our Sweet Adelines sisters join us on the risers to  sing 'How we Sang Today'.

Work and Play at Retreat!

February 7, 2018 - 6:26pm -- Amy Seid

Resonance, vowel tunnel, diphthong, breath control, phrasing, flamboyance, and consistency are but some of the keywords we took away from our retreat!  We were so excited and inspired by our time with Betty Clipman who led us to sing at another level.  Now to bring those skills and energy back to rehearsal each week and on to competition!  <!--break--> And in between our educational sessions, we had time for fun fotos, socializing and even to discover what color our brains were.

Hot Team - Installation Dinner Kicks Off New Season

June 4, 2017 - 4:39pm -- Amy Seid

Our installation dinner (where we honor the service of all from our prior year and 'install' the new leadership for next year) was more fun than ever!  Cass was a wonderful emcee keeping us guessing and laughing thru a game of 'Know your Management Team.'  We acknowledged the service of all the members who work so hard to keep us going and gave awards for special accomplishments last year:  Louisa  received the 'Golden Sneaker Award' for outstanding performance, Lucille  was awarded the 'Treble Clef' for her growth and teamwork within the tenors and leads, Tina received the 'Bass Clef' award for her dedication within the baris and basses and last, but definitely not least, Jeannie was sworn in to the HTC Hall of Fame!

2016 Woman of Note - Janene DePalo

October 27, 2016 - 7:59pm -- Amy Seid

Janene DePalo was having a lot of fun directing high school musicals, but she really wanted to have as much fun as the student stars she directed. So in 2007, she looked around the local musical landscape and found a place to grow with Hickory Tree Chorus. She’s been singing with HTC ever since – with the chorus, in VLQ’s, with Midnight Rhythm and Moonstruck quartets, for three years with the Women’s Harmony Brigade, and almost every gig, big or small, that comes our way!

“Janene has grown so much since she joined HTC, and she’s an incredible team player,” says Hickory Tree Chorus Master Director, Carolyn Schmidt.
