Cedar Harmony Chorus is more than just an acapella ensemble, it is a family. As a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, we love getting together each week and sharing four-part harmony!
You don't need to be an amazing soloist! Each member brings their voice to the ensemble and together we create a musical expression that is vital and alive!
If you are female and like to sing, we invite you to visit us by coming to a rehearsal. It's the perfect way to find out more about us. You'll hear us perform barbershop music and be on the risers with us singing along.
We rehearse on Monday nights, starting at 7:00pm, at Music Hill Studios, 1509 Rainbow Drive, Waterloo, IA 50701.
We can't wait to meet you!
