Santa Monica Chorus

The Santa Monica Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International. We are currently the Mid-size Chorus Champions in our Region as well as the IES Division A 2nd Place finalists. Our chorus has the proud distinction of being the oldest Sweet Adelines chapter west of the Rocky Mountains. We received our charter on July 25, 1949, only four years after the founding of Sweet Adelines International.

Our director of the past 19 years is Laura Pallas. Laura has a Masters Degree in Fine Arts – Music, and is an accomplished musician, performer, and regional and international competitor who specializes in vocal production and technique. She is a member of the Sweet Adelines International Faculty. In addition to directing the Santa Monica, Laura coaches quartets and choruses around the country. Laura has also been on the international stage as the Lead of Naturally, Region 11 2005 Champions.

The Santa Monica Chorus loves to perform and entertain. That has been true through 57 years of singing and sharing our exciting barbershop sound. We can be heard throughout the year, singing for civic and charitable organizations, private groups, churches, community events, and fundraisers. We love to entertain by putting on our own musical events each year for the community, our friends, and families. We send “singing telegrams” on Mother’s Day. And being true to our commitment to sing and perform at the highest level possible, we compete each year in the Sweet Adelines International Regional Competition.
