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! On June 7, Jet Cities held their first in-person rehearsal and it was amazing! We finally met new members face-to-face instead of virtually, sang songs we'd only ever done via Zoom, and met 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 Contact page and drop us a line. We'd love to see you one Monday night!
Our 17th Annual Sweetie Pie Social
In a normal February, Jet Cities would hold our Annual Sweetie Pie Social fundraiser at a local Federal Way high school where we would share an afternoon of pie and singing with our friends and community. COVID-19 had other ideas, however, so we held the show virtually via YouTube on February 13, 2021!
There is no charge to watch the show, but we will gratefully accept donations, which help us continue to educate our members through ongoing (virtual) rehearsals and musical instruction. Other operating expenses include the director's salary, the purchase of music, copyright fees, and, regional and international dues.
Jet Cities is a registered 501(c)(3), non-profit organization (#23-7009215). We do appreciate your help; we do appreciate YOU!
We did a thing!
During the quarantine brought on by COVID-19 in our county, 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 2019 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 tenor section.
We're so proud of Sue for her many years of contributions to our chorus. Here's to many more!
