Singing in the Park

12:30 – 1:30        Wichita Chorus Sweet Adelines


The Singing in the Park Show welcomes the voices of the Wichita Chorus Sweet Adelines to the Farm Bureau Stage for some great harmonies!

Wichita Chorus

The Wichita Chorus is part of Sweet Adelines International, an amazing group of women, singing real harmony, and having real fun today! Our Chorus invites women to enrich their lives by realizing their full singing potential. You’ll be amazed by the unlimited experiences and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities you’ll find as a member. The Wichita Chorus received its charter on April 23, 1951, with 26 members singing under the direction of Jack Midgley. The chorus placed 2nd in their first competition in 1951.

Through the years there have been many costumes, and many songs.  Best remembered and loved are probably the following: (1) the ‘Ponyboy’ package performed at the 1980 International contest that featured a rip-away costume for the front row to reveal them wearing jockey outfits. (The Wichita Chorus is proud to be among the first to do a costume change on stage.); and (2) the ‘Irish’ package–the chorus sang their hearts out as Irish lasses with Director, Melodee, dressed as a Leprechaun, with an actual shillelagh and bright orange hair!  Both of these packages achieved an International placement of 5th for the Wichita Chorus.
We are active competitors and performers and just returned from competing at the 2019 Harmony Classic Competition this September in New Orleans!  We placed third, small chorus, Division A! In 2017, we placed second at the Harmony Classic Competition in Las Vegas.
