We are professional women, stay at home moms,
teachers, nurses, retirees,... What unites us is the love of 4 part harmony.
We work for continuous improvement. Barbershop is a challenging style to perfect
but there is nothing like the experience of standing in the midst of a chorus with
chords ringing all around you. Come visit us to see for yourself.
Music became an official part of my life beginning with
classical piano instruction at the age of eight. A few years later I started playing the
accordion. I performed with Mr. Bert's accordion band and competed locally with both instruments.
I also sang alto with and accompanied choruses through high school. I was a gleek before it was cool!
In 1998, I was introduced to the local New Mexico Sweet Adeline's International chapter
(via an acquaintance from a ballroom dance club) and became a member in time to participate
in the Region 21 chorus competition that year. These women were crazy talented and fun.
I didn't miss a Regional or International competition for the following ten years.
I held positions on the music and administrative teams, performed and competed with
quartets and accompanied the chorus at Christmas performances. Currently, I direct
and sing tenor in the Route 66 Sound Chapter. I also sing tenor in Southwest Edition Quartet.
Singing and traveling with these wonderful women has been a blessing in my life and I treasure
the friendships that have been extended to me. Come harmonize with us and make your own musical
memories and friendships.
Route 66 Sound is a small chorus in Region 21 of Sweet Adelines International.
We have placed 2nd in the Division A chorus competition in our first 2 competitions and in 2013 we
were honored to receive the Most Improved Chorus award!
We are an acapella chorus whose goal is to create exciting and smile-inducing performances that push the envelope of the barbershop art form. Our members are committed to independent/self-motivated study of our barbershop music and principles in order to achieve this goal.
This chorus was founded on some basic principles:
