Love singing holiday music? Great! Let us teach you how to sing it in 4-part harmony!
The Spirit of Syracuse welcomes all women ages 14 and up to join us for our holiday music season.
Rehearsal starts with warmups. Good vocal production is taught and practiced.
Music reading is not necessary. Most of our learning is now done by listening to learning CDs. Learning CDs provide more than just notes - words, dynamic levels (louds and softs), phrasing, correct vowel pronunciation are all there for the singer.
Bring your enthusiasm -- we’ll provide the music and the fun!

In an unexpected, yet thrilling, chain of events, the Spirit of Syracuse Chorus has officially accepted an invitation to compete in the 2019 Sweet Adelines International Competition in New Orleans! SOS will once again join their friends from Greater Nassau on the 'Big Stage' during SAI's penultimate showcase of harmonic talents.
"When I first got the email with the wildcard invite, I had to read it multiple times. I could not believe it," says SOS Team Leader, Amy Manley. "We are so incredibly honored and humbled to be able to have this wonderful opportunity again."
Registration for Lakeside A Cappella, the Northeast's premeire youth harmony camp is now open!!!
We are super excited to finally announce that SIGNATURE, BHS 2017 International 2nd Place Quartet Medalist, and LOVENOTES, 2014 Sweet Adelines International Queens of Harmony, will be our clinicians this Jully at Cazenovia College.
Stepping into the bright lights of the Sweet Adelines International Competition, the Spirit of Syracuse proudly represented the Greater NY/NJ region 15 in the world-wide event.
Eighteen months after their highest scoring regional contest in chorus history, 65 members of SOS savored their moment at the international showcase. Although this was the 5th time in its 60-year history that chorus has received a bid to SAI’s penultimate dance, this was a first-time experience for more than half of our membership.
Flying home as one of the top 30 choruses in the world was a humbling experience, and we are super excited to take the journey again.
Congrats to all this year’s competitors!
