Acapella Express is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a worldwide organization of female singers. We meet most Thursday nights to practice the art of barbershop harmony and have fun. Our members are women singers of all ages and all walks of life who come from an area surrounding 100 miles around Fargo-Moorhead.
The main purpose of Acapella Express Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at a regional competition. 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, HIRE US!
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella 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.
In the spring, Acapella Express Chorus participates in the Northern Lights Region 6 chorus convention and 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.
Most choruses have a number of members who form their own quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Acapella Express currently is home to some wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them!
Acapella Express Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a non-profit organization of over 30,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
