By popular demand Friends of Music is happy to welcome back the City of the Hills Chorus for the final concert of our 26th season at 3:00 PM on Sunday, December 2, 2012. As in the 2011 Holiday Concert the program will include traditional carols and some contemporary songs interspersed with audience sing-a-longs to get us in the mood for the Holidays we will be celebrating soon afterwards.

The City of the Hills Chorus is a group of area women of all ages and all walks of life who meet once a week because they love to sing four-part harmony in the barbershop style. The chorus and quartets from within the larger group have performed for business and social organizations, nursing homes, Oneonta’s First Night and other community events and offer entertainment in the Oneonta/ Cooperstown area singing modern show tunes, ragtime toe-tappers, pop tunes, and old favorites.

The Chorus chartered with Sweet Adelines International in 1985. Sweet Adelines is an international organization of women whose purpose is to teach the American folk art of singing four-part harmony in barbershop style, and through performances, to encourage appreciation of the tradition of that music. For more information about the Chorus please visit their Web site.
