Venetian Harmony is a non-profit chorus of women singers who sing a cappella music in the Barbershop style. We are an affiliate of Sweet Adelines International. We love to sing for our community, and are available for performances at your next function.
Betty Meinholz joined Venetian Harmony as our permanent director in May 2023. She has been a Sweet Adeline for 65 years and is an SAI Certified Director. In the past, she directed the Harmony Hills Chorus (Birmingham, Alabama), winning 5 regional championships. From 2019 to 2023, she directed the Goldcoast Chorus (Hialeah, Florida). Betty also served on the SAI International Faculty for 20 years and on the Region 9 Faculty until her retirement in 2022.
Betty is a Queen of Harmony, having won the 1971 International Quartet Competition with her quartet, "Brons Tones." She has also sung with two Region 9 champion quartets, "In the Mix" (2007 & 2008) and "Sassy " (2012).
We perform a Christmas show and a Spring show for our friends and the local public. We also sing at a variety of functions, such as our recent performance with the Venice Gondoliers Barbershop Chorus.
Whether it's singing the National Anthem at a ballgame, having an after-rehearsal snack at a local restaurant, or getting together for an informal rehearsal and sing-along, friendship and camaraderie are an important part of the Venetian Harmony experience.
Turn up the volume and enjoy!
We love to sing in our community. We've performed for luncheons, club events, patriotic ceremonies, and holiday/birthday celebrations. We're available to sing at your next function if you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event. Please call (941) 525-2376 for more information.
The Venetian Harmony Chorus is more than just a singing ensemble; we are a family. We love getting together each week, having fun and sharing our love for a cappella music. If you like to sing, please come and visit. Sitting in on one of our rehearsals is the perfect way to find out more about us and what we can do for you. You'll have the opportunity to hear us perform and to experience our music, fun, and friendship.
