The OK City Chorus of Sweet Adelines has a 40+ year history of providing outstanding, show-stopping entertainment from Philadelphia to Las Vegas, as far abroad as Royal Albert Hall in London to the Great Wall of China. Made up of women from all parts of the metro area and beyond, their goal is to preserve the American art form of barbershop music by “Harmonizing the World.” Their repertoire will take you on a musical adventure embracing America’s most memorable songs from jazz to the blues, country to pop, and everything in between. The OK City Chorus routines, complete with choreographed moves and dance steps, add visual excitement and color to delight audiences young and old.
