2015 Regional Competition with David Wallace, director

We won AA First Place and will compete in 2016 Harmony Classic!

Sounds of Pittsburgh scored 618 points at our regional competition this May. That gave us a 2nd place overall and first place in our midsize (AA) chorus division. Our score was high enough to place us at the International Harmony Classic competition in 2016. We will be competing in Las Vegas on October 18, 2016 at the MGM Grand.

Sounds of Pittsburgh Participates in Day of Giving May 6, 2014

Pittsburgh Day of Giving 2014The Sounds of Pittsburgh chorus is an award-winning women’s a cappella chorus from the Greater Pittsburgh area. We are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a worldwide organization of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop four-part harmony.

While our chorus offers educational opportunities to its members, we also serve the community through shows and other events throughout the 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. In 2009 we competed on the International stage in Nashville.

Its easy – Donate this Day of Giving!

A Few things to remember:

  • This is an 18-hour event and it will replace the Day of Giving traditionally held in October.
  • Organizations will receive a pro-rated portion of the match pool. The match will be capped at $1,000 per donor transaction per organization. For example, if you make a gift of $5,000 to one organization, only $1,000 of that gift will count toward the match calculation.
