Each member of the Sounds of Pittsburgh Chorus takes pride in our commitment to excellence in the field of a cappella four part harmony.
A cappella music is seeing a resurgence and is getting people of all ages excited by its close harmonies. The Sounds of Pittsburgh Chorus has been recognized for our reputation of excellence in sound and performance for over 40 years throughout the tri-state area. Along with nearly 30,000 women in 600 chapters of Sweet Adelines world-wide, a love of singing keeps us entertaining audiences year-round. Sounds of Pittsburgh Chorus sings a wide variety of music arranged in the barbershop style, from Broadway show tunes and big band sounds to patriotic crowd pleasers and old time ballads. Stereotypes are broken by Sounds including surprising elements like swing, pop, disco, and even a little classical music!
Our objective is to educate chorus members in the original American art form of a cappella harmony in the barbershop style, entertain in the community, and support efforts to promote and retain this art form for future generations. We pursue these objectives through education, performance and community service throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area.
Sounds of Pittsburgh is a past championship chorus, having represented our four-state region six times on the thrilling international contest stage from Philadelphia to Los Angeles.
The women who are currently members of the chorus come from more than forty communities in the tri-state area to sing with this high-caliber performing chorus. Some members live as close as the City of Pittsburgh or Moon Township. Some hail from Tarentum and Export in the east, Morgantown, WV to the south, Hubbard, OH and Beaver, PA to the west and Butler in the north. Our membership includes teachers, secretaries, students, homemakers, business owners, retirees and more… the only thing missing is YOU!
