For over 50 years, Scenic City Chorus has entertained audiences in the surrounding Chattanooga area with dynamic, a cappella, four-part harmony! Our style of entertainment is family-friendly and refreshingly different. Audiences enjoy our contemporary spin on songs that include an array of modern pop, old standards, inspirational and patriotic favorites. Whether a heartfelt ballad or toe-tapping up tune, there is something for everyone.
Scenic City Chorus is a chartered member of Sweet Adeline International since 1962. Sweet Adelines International is a highly respected worldwide organization of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education, competition and performance. This independent, nonprofit music education association is one of the world’s largest singing organizations for women. Members say that singing the powerfully balanced sounds of barbershop harmony provides a rich, rewarding experience that changes their lives and helps women find their voices, both on the risers and in their everyday lives.
Scenic City Chorus has grown from a small chorus to a large chorus over the past 56 years. Director Jennifer Cooke hails from Nashville and is a member of the International Board of Sweet Adelines Inc. She was voted Coach of the Year for Region 4 in 2017 and received the title of Master Director at the 2017 Region4 competition in Lexington, Ky., where our chorus was honored with the title of Master Singers. Members work every week improving their skills in hopes of obtaining an even higher score at next year’s competition. The chorus meets every Monday at Spring Creek Baptist Gymnasium, 1312 Spring Creek Rd., from 6:30-9:30 p.m. New members of all ages are welcome to share the love of singing four-part harmony.
In addition to singing for a variety of community events, members produce an annual show. This year’s show is Saturday, November 3, at Notre Dame High School at 4 p.m. “The Singing Zone” is an opportunity for you to enjoy the chorus as it sings 10 new songs.
In addition to the performances of this award-winning chorus, the show will feature a very special guest quartet, The Buzz. This quartet was crowned the 2003 Sweet Adelines International Championship Quartet.
