The Bella Voce Chorus members of Sweet Adelines International are searching for women singers in the Craig, Meeker, Steamboat and Baggs, Wyo., areas. The group wants to grow its chorus. Celebrating its 30th year, the Bella Voce Chorus was founded in Craig in 1983. Now led by the group’s new director, Jeana Womble, the women range from 11-year-olds to grandmothers and all are from diverse backgrounds. Women of all ages who enjoy singing are invited to attend the chorus’ weekly rehearsal at 7 p.m. Thursdays at the Craig Middle School auditorium.
Musical knowledge is not necessary to join — every rehearsal is like a voice lesson. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range. For more information, contact Jeana Womble at 970-824-6472 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
