The main purpose of Image City Soundis to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at  annual competitions. We also perform Singing Telegrams, in person or by telephone, for birthdays and special events as well as around Valentines Day and Mother's Day. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.



In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. At least twice a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop harmony, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.

CompetitionIn the spring of every year, Image City Sound participates in the Region 16 Sweet Adeline chorus competition. Starting in 2020, our competition will be in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, at the First Ontario Performing Arts Center in the Partridge Theater. Competition is a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a different city each year.  In 2020, International Competition will be held in Louisville, KY.
