Singers Wanted – Singers Came
By Janet Mason
Grand Rapids, MI – February 6, 2023. Our last Guest Night was more than three years ago. The Grand Rapids Chorus of Sweet Adelines didn’t feel comfortable opening up its rehearsals, while Covid-19 was circulating through our community. We decided early 2023 would be the right time for a Singers Wanted Guest Night. We promoted the event on Facebook, with some beautiful messages, and our members reached out to their family and friends. As February 6th approached we wondered – would anyone show up?
We were delighted when 19 women and girls joined us on the risers. It was a multi-generational turnout, according to Membership Co-chair Sue Kuzee. “It was nice to see two high school girls come with their grandmother, the college age babysitter for one of our members, and the middle schooler who came to support her Mom,” said Kuzee.
We look forward to them joining us on the risers as they move through our audition process.
