About Spirit of the Gulf
Spirit of the Gulf is a loving sisterhood with utmost respect and acceptance for all. We are a diverse group. Whether it be differences in age, race, religion, economic background, educational background, or anything else – we come together to make music and joyfully practice inclusion and tolerance. Our corporate experience is to celebrate and love all of our sisters. Spirit is a place where racism and hate, judgment and prejudice will not be tolerated. It’s called harmony – and it’s what we should be doing best, showing the rest of the world what loving one another looks like and feels like.
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 100 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of Florida.
We are proud to have been voted Most Entertaining Chorus at three International competitions in Las Vegas, Hawaii, and Denver. Most recently, we competed in Daytona Beach, Florida, in the Spring of 2019 where we won the blue ribbon. Our win in Daytona qualifies us to return to the International competition in St. Louis the in Fall of 2021. Between competitions we love to perform in our local area. Please see information below or 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 a cappella 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.
We love performing for any occasion!
The full chorus is available for your concert series or event.
