The Sweet Adelines International 2020 Queens of Harmony have been crowned! VIVA! Congratulations to Patty Cobb-Baker, Gina Baker, Chris DeRosa, and our very own Peggy Jones. CHC is sooo proud and happy for you and we love you very much!

Congratulations also to Trisha Coley and her quartet The Vibe for their wonderful performance on the International Stage.

Our friend and fellow chorus member, Elaine Hunt, passed away on June 12, 2019.

Elaine discovered barbershop in the late 1980's when she joined Carolina Harmony Chorus and, with her excellent work ethic and enthusiastic approach, rapidly became a dedicated chorus member. She was an asset as a singer and as a member of the Chorus Music Staff (Lead Section Leader). She also served several terms on the Chorus Board of Directors (Six times as President!!)

As Roxanne Davenport, who sang with Elaine in their quartet "What Next?!", says, Elaine "loved the whole Sweet Adeline experience - the contests, the shows, the organization, the Queens of Harmony, the whole shabang!"

After many happy years of singing in the Masonic temple in Raleigh, it is time to say goodbye - and hello to our new rehearsal location! Starting July 23, 2019 our rehearsals will take place in the fellowship hall of St. Giles Presbyterian Church, 5101 Oak Park Rd., Raleigh. But wait, there is more! Stay tuned for more news coming soon.

Amy joined Carolina Harmony Chorus soon after moving to Cary, NC, in the early 1980's and shared her positive outlook, excellent work ethic, and enthusiasm for barbershop harmony as an active member for a number of years.  She was an asset to the chorus both as a singer (excellent baritone) and as a member of the chapter Board of Directors, where she served several terms as Treasurer.   Most of all, she was a good friend and a pleasure to be around. 

We are lucky to have known her!!
