About Gem City

The Gem City Chorus is Dayton's premier women's show chorus, dedicated to advancing the musical art of a cappella singing - especially that All-American tradition of barbershop harmony. Our chorus has a long and rich history of accomplishments in Sweet Adelines, an International organization for barbershop singers, as well as contributions to the Dayton community. Examples include singing the National Anthem at Dayton Dragon's games as well as other sporting events, annual shows, and Christmas caroling downtown. We even have a star on the Dayton "Walk of Fame"!
Our members are a group of fun-loving and dynamic women of all ages, occupations, and backgrounds. We've built a vocal harmony family in Gem City and are enthusiastic as we continue our musical journey of education, entertainment, and competition. Each year we compete at the Harmony Heartland Region 4 competition alongside many other Sweet Adeline choruses as well as attend regional education workshops throughout the year. Our musical journey never ends!

If you are a woman with a passion for singing and entertaining others, please contact us to learn more about our weekly rehearsals. We welcome the opportunity to show you what we are all about, and why we say, "Once a Gem, always a Gem!"
