Sweet Adelines – Women’s Barbershop Singing Performance

FVCOn Tuesday, October 22, the Farmington Libraries will host the Farmington Valley Chorus for a performance of a cappella style songs sang in the barbershop tradition. This event will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the main library at 6 Monteith Drive.

The Farmington Valley Chorus (FVC) is a membership organization of female singers who sing a cappella four-part harmony in the barbershop style.  After World War II, barbershop singing was growing increasingly popular for men. In 1945, a small group of women wanted to participate in the chord-ringing, fun-filled harmony that the men were singing, so these women organized “Sweet Adelines in America.” From its humble beginnings in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Sweet Adelines International, as it is now called, has grown to a membership of almost 30,000 women in countries all across the globe, of which the FVC is a part.
