Sweet Adelines Convention Warm Up to Harmonize at Seattle Sights

In this day and age of Glee-mania and flash mobs, an Everett Sweet Adelines chorus and a Seattle tour company are hitting the streets of Seattle on Sunday, October 3rd as a warm-up to the Sweet Adelines International Convention from October 19th-23rd.

This musical-tour mashup will tour the City for three hours and simply break out in song when the mood strikes.

During the convention in October, every tour offered by Tours Northwest will be discounted if anyone, or hopefully everyone, on the bus sings a song at a public place selected by the tour guide. Pioneer Square, the Fremont Troll, Kerry Park and the Ballard Locks are likely venues. Keep your ears alert!

Tours Northwest is calling the convention week “Sweet Week”. Every city tour will stop at Theo’s Chocolate; every City tour is subject to the Discount for a Song theme. All tours are open to the public, but you may simply serendipitously bump into the melodious visitors throughout Seattle.

Voices Northwest is an Everett-based Sweet Adelines chorus and will not be competing during convention week because they are part of the Convention Center/Key Arena volunteer organization. They will, however, have an opportunity this Sunday that the later tour groups won’t: they can sing at every stop on the city tour.

During Sweet Week, Tours Northwest will be offering their popular Seattle City tour, Boeing Assembly Plant tour, and Mt. Rainier tour. The international singers will also have the benefit of several custom tours to see more of the Northwest.

The Sea to Sky tour will go north and visit La Conner, the bakeries of Edison, Taylor Oyster Farms, Mt Erie and Deception Pass.

The Tacoma tour will visit the City of Destiny and go not only to the Glass Museum, but will sightsee further: Old Town, Stadium High School, the gorgeous homes of the north-end, Point Defiance and the double suspension bridge (with video of Galloping Gertie).

One Winery tour will head east to Woodinville and the Eastside; another will visit Seattle wine tasting rooms and a few of the burgeoning number of breweries in the area.

Watch for this glee-filled collaboration this Sunday. In October, join in the fun, nail the scenic high notes and extend your Northwest range.
