Alamo Metro Chorus - Award Winning Barbershop At Its Best!

The Alamo Metro Chorus takes great pride in belonging to Sweet Adelines International, the largest nonprofit women's musical organization in the world! The chorus is comprised of women of all ages throughout central Texas who are drawn together by the love of barbershop-style harmony, which is evident in the vibrancy and quality of their performances. High energy choreography and beautiful costuming complete their entertainment package. They are joined in this passion of close harmonies and ringing chords by 23,000 members from across the globe including Australia, Canada, England, Finland, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Scotland, Sweden and Wales!

The chorus celebrated its 28th anniversary this month and has earned nine Regional Championships and twelve appearances on the International Competition stage placing in the top ten on two occasions. They are extremely proud of their International 4th place medals awarded for their Entertainment Package performed in the Harmony Classic Contest in Baltimore, MD. They tied for 1st Place in this year's Regional Competition and earned 1st place in the AA Mid-size Chorus division.

 
Alamo Metro Chorus Sweet Adelines In Concert March 18, 2012

AMC maintains a full performance schedule singing for many private, cultural and community events including Memorial Day ceremonies at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery, The Spurs, Stars and Rampage games, The Blazing Gavels KLRN Auction and the United Communities of SA Awards Banquet. The Fredericksburg Music Club Series is celebrating their 80th year of presenting quality entertainment to Texas residents and the chorus is honored to be singing again for this distinguished arts organization on February 19, 2017 at the First United Methodist Church at 3 pm. The public is invited for a donation at the door.

Not content to just dazzle their audiences, AMC also adopts a charity each year. Our choice for the past several years has been The Ronald McDonald House that provides housing and comfort to many families whose children are receiving medical treatment in S.A. A portion of the proceeds of this show will go towards this worthwhile endeavor.

Members are an eclectic mix of teachers, students, homemakers, executives, retirees and more who love performing and competing, honing their leadership skills and experiencing the fellowship and sheer joy this organization provides on a weekly basis. We are blessed to have Mary Ann Wydra, Master Director, gifted arranger and certified Music Judge as our musical leader.

For additional info, talk to an AMC member, pick up some literature in the lobby or visit our website at alamometroehorus.org.
