MILLSTONE, NJ - There’s a melody resonating from western Monmouth County. The Heart of New Jersey Chorus has something to sing about! A chapter of Sweet Adelines International, this amazing group of women is growing and winning awards. As with all Sweet Adelines, the chorus sings a cappella four-part harmony in the barbershop style. Heart of New Jersey Chorus sings a variety of music from show tunes to swing, ballads to boogie, and so much more.
Heart of New Jersey chorus has been revitalized in the past year with a new logo and new Director, Jeanne Elmuccio. Jeanne has been involved in Sweet Adelines for many years, is a Certified SAI Director, a member of the SAI Region 15 Faculty and an arranger. Outside of Sweet Adelines, Jeanne is the Director of Music at Calvary Lutheran Church in Cranford, New Jersey, and directs a seasonal choir at her workplace.
The positive energy is almost palpable. In April 2016, Heart of New Jersey Chorus brought home third place in the Small Chorus Division of the Sweet Adelines International Greater NY/NJ Region #15 Convention. This was a huge accomplishment for a chorus who had only months to prepare after bringing in a new Director. And they’re certainly not stopping there. Heart of New Jersey Chorus has been adding new members to enhance their beautiful harmony and performing shows for various audiences throughout New Jersey.
There’s no stopping this group from achieving greatness in song and they’re looking for more talented women to join in the fun and excitement. Do you have an ear for music and love to sing? Heart of New Jersey Chorus is on the lookout for voices of all ranges. Upcoming Open House Rehearsals are scheduled at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28 and Wednesday, October 5 at the Millstone Primary School, 18 Schoolhouse Road, Millstone, New Jersey. Women of all ages are invited to check us out and see what being a member is all about.
