Jet Cities Chorus is a women’s chorus from the South Puget Sound area that sings 4-part a cappella harmony. We’re committed to having a diverse group of singers and supporting community activities, and we are passionate about singing and empowering women... even during a pandemic! If you want to be part of a sisterhood filled with music, laughter, support, and camaraderie, visit our Contact page and send us a message about attending one of our in-person or virtual rehearsals.
We're back singing in person!
How sweet it was to finally sing together in person! In June, Jet Cities held their first in-person rehearsal and it was amazing! The photos below show us meeting new members "mask-to-mask" instead of virtually, singing songs we'd only ever done via Zoom, and saying "Hello" to our newest "youth member" of the chorus. A simultaneous virtual rehearsal was broadcast, too, for members not quite ready to come back. The whole evening was magical and emotional...and we can't wait to do it again next week!
If you are interested in attending one of Jet Cities' rehearsals--either in person or virtually--visit our Contactpage and drop us a line. We'd love to see you one Monday night!
Note: Jet Cities follows the King County and Washington State COVID guidelines, which means rehearsals may find us outside without masks, inside with masks, or a combination of both. Social distancing is maintained and masking is encouraged in any situation if it makes you feel more comfortable or if you are unvaccinated.
Our 17th Annual Sweetie Pie Social
In a normal February, Jet Cities would have held our Annual Sweetie Pie Social fundraiser at a local Federal Way high school. We would have shared an afternoon of pie and singing with our friends and community. COVID-19 had other ideas, however, so instead we held the show virtually via YouTube on February 13, 2021!
During the quarantine brought on by COVID-19, Jet Cities has been having virtual rehearsals on Zoom. We've taken things a step further by making some virtual choir recordings of our own! To see the fun, final results, please visit our Media page.
Sharing the joy of singing
A Jet Cities VLQ (very large quartet!) spread some harmony one Saturday morning at Auburn Meadows Senior Living Community's Memory Unit. So much fun! The seven singers shared songs with the residents in attendance, plus got many of them involved in a sing-a-long!
If you think participating in activities like this would be fun, you're right! We invite you to visit a rehearsal and see what Jet Cities is all about. And then maybe one day YOU can do this, too.
55 years...and counting!
Jet Cities member Sue McBride was recognized at our annual convention for her 55 years of membership in Sweet Adelines International, all of them with Jet Cities!
Sue, who began singing with Jet Cities when she was...much younger...continues to be a very active member of our chorus. She frequently leads our physical warm-ups, has held offices and headed committees, and is a valued member of our chorus.
We're so proud of Sue for her many years of contributions to our chorus. Here's to many more!
