Dayton is full of amazing talent. Some get the limelight, some get grand billing, while others sing for the world to hear collecting awards and accolades quietly. The Gem City Chorus is doing just that.
Gem City Chorus is an international award winning women’s performance chorus that sings in the 4 part Acappella style know as barbershop. Although this is our primary harmony style, the Gem City Chorus sings a variety of music from pop to big band, from musicals to songs from the stage and screen.
Gem City is a member of Sweet Adelines International. This international body represents more than 70 years of singing competition and more than 23,000 members worldwide who sing in choruses like the Gem City Chorus. Dayton’s Chorus of ladies has 14 Medal Winning International performances. These ladies not only sing, but compete at the highest levels. Members can be found in all ages, one member has been performing with Gem City for 55 years!
This women-only group rehearses every week in their own studio space in Centerville. They gather every Tuesday evening for more than 3 hours to perfect the 4 part harmony they are famous for. Women of all ages are encouraged to stop in and learn more about singing a cappella music, barbershop style, and how to become a member of the chorus.
Gem City Chorus is more than a sorority and competition singing group. They also comprise 4 professional ensembles for hire. Visit GemCityChorus.org for more information about the full 50 member Chorus, the smaller Diamond Cut ensemble of 16 ladies or one of the two quartets for your next event.
