The Rich-Tones want to do what we can to help keep our members, families, and communities safe and healthy. With that in mind, we are suspending in-person rehearsals and look forward to resuming our schedule soon and welcoming guests when we return. Please contact us if you would like an invitation to our online zoom rehearsals.
We join Sweet Adelines around the world in remembering the inspiring life of Darlene Rogers, recipient of Sweet Adeline International’s 2020 President’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Darlene Rogers was one of the most influential women in our organization, and we all miss her greatly. Plans are underway for a Celebration of Life this spring, including a slideshow featuring photos of Darlene with her Sweet Adelines friends and family.
Do you have a photo or memory you'd like to share? Please send images and/or memories to [email protected], and include your name, chapter and region. Depending on response, we'll incorporate as many as we can. We look forward to sharing your happy memories and celebrating with you in the spring!

I originally joined Rich-Tones in 1988 and will always treasure the memory of our first gold medal in Baltimore in 1992. I was expecting my daughter, Erin, so she was on stage with me, even before the nausea set in! Ironically, 16 years later, we decided to join/rejoin the Rich-Tones together. Now we enjoy making more beautiful music and memories together, along with our sisters in harmony … there's nothing like it! -Mary-Jo, Rich-Tone Baritone
I joined RT in 1980. I had just graduated from college and I was starting my banking career but had very little to enrich and fill my free time. In college I gained four years’ experience in marching and concert band, and I really missed the musical outlet and camaraderie. I met someone who sang in the Vocal Majority (men’s barbershop harmony chorus) and he introduced me to the Rich-Tone Chorus.
Forty years and numerous performances and projects have rolled by, and I am still very excited to be an active member of this award-winning group!!
One of my favorite Rich-Tone performances occurred when we traveled to Plymouth, England in 2005 to perform for the Quartet of Nations’ regional contest. What a treat to provide a top-notch barbershop concert experience for the members of several countries who were eager to be entertained by international barbershop champions. It’s always fun to perform with the talented members of the Rich-Tone Chorus, but this event stands out due to that super-appreciative audience. -Sharon, Rich-Tone Bass
