Spirit of the Gulf
Spirit of the Gulf is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 120 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of Florida as well as many snowbirds from "up North".
We are proud to have been voted Most Entertaining Chorus at three International competitions in Las Vegas, Hawaii, and Denver. In November, 2014 we competed in Baltimore and placed among the top ten choruses in the world. Between competitions we still love to perform in our local area. Please check out our Hire Us section.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. Several times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.
Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Spirit of the Gulf currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
Spirit of the Gulf 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.
