A group of local women wants to teach the world to sing. They are beginning by inviting women and teen girls who enjoy singing to attend their Sierra Gold Chorus Open House at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 23, at Burbeck Hall, in Auburn. Sierra Gold Chorus is the local chapter of Sweet Adelines International, an organization of nearly 25,000 women worldwide who sing four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop style. All over the globe, Sweet Adelines International choruses are joining together to teach the world to sing. According to chorus member Judy Naill, of Loomis, the Sierra Gold Chorus includes women from Placer, Nevada and Sacramento Counties, who share a love for music and singing barbershop harmony. She said any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range with the help of the chorus’ musical leaders and director. The Sierra Gold Chorus performs regularly throughout the community, offering its talent for entertainment at civic events, county fairs and charitable functions. Sierra Gold Chorus recently entertained hundreds of people at the annual Christmas shows in Nevada City and Auburn, and will be preparing for the April Regional competition in Reno, NV. The open house will be held at Burback Hall, DeWitt Center, 11577 E Ave., in Auburn. For more information, go to or call Carolie at 530-478-0130; Barbara at 530-885-4202; or Bev at 663-2105.
