If you love to sing in the shower or croon in the car, you need to explore the wonderful singing opportunities with the Hilton Head Shore Notes, a women’s four-part a cappella chorus that has been entertaining local audiences throughout the Lowcountry since 1997. Their 32 members are busy rehearsing for their next show, “The Magic of Broadway,” on March 5 at the Seahawk Cultural Center, where they play to standing room only every year. They are very excited to have Speed of Sound, the 2016 Queens of Harmony, who finished first in the world at International Competition in Las Vegas in October, as their special guest quartet.
Barbershop singing has been around since the 1920s, but as Sweet Adelines like to clarify, “Men invented it, but women perfected it!” Women not only sing great songs, but they get to dress to the nines. The icing on the cake is that the Shore Notes have won medals at their last five Regional Competitions in Daytona, Florida, no small feat. They will be competing again this April.
The Shore Notes also have two quartets that enjoy singing at all types of functions in Hilton Head and Bluffton. Just One Night and Sea Sharp would love to entertain you at any event throughout the year, including singing valentines.
One of the greatest joys of being a Shore Note is the opportunity to give back to the community. Christmas season is a wonderful time of year for the chorus since they sing Christmas cheer to all the local retirement communities in Hilton Head and Bluffton. Naturally, the Shore Notes are available for hire any time during the year since they have a diverse repertoire and are regularly called upon to perform at community functions.
The Shore Notes rehearse every Monday evening at the Island Lutheran Church, 4400 Main Street, Hilton Head, from 6:45 to 9:45. Guests and prospective members are always welcomed.
