Prairie Rose Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We have an extraordinary group of women from ages 17-90 from all walks of life, and all parts of Dickinson and Western North Dakota, joined together through our mutual love of music!
The main purpose of Prairie Rose Chorus is to sing for our community. We can be heard throughout the year, singing for civic and charitable organizations, business, private groups, churches, community events and fundraisers. We usually have an annual show in October and perform a free Christmas show for the community in early December. We also do singing Valentines on February 14th as well as birthdays and anniversaries. 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,
In addition to sharing our music with others, we are interested in 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. A couple of times a year, we will have the opportunity for coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.
Prairie Rose Chorus participates in Northern Lights Region 6 competition every three years or more often if possible. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other and receive constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year.
Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Prairie Rose Chorus currently is home to several wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Visit the "About" page and select "Quartets" to learn more about them.
Prairie Rose Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a non-profit organization of approximately 30,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
