About Heart of the Pines Chorus

Heart of the Pines Chorus is a membership organization of female singers who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 20 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and from all parts of Nacogdoches and the surrounding areas.



The main purpose of Heart of the Pines Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at an annual competition. We also perform Singing Telegrams around Valentines Day. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, 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. A couple of times a year we are coached by a visiting master in the art of barbershop where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.


In the spring of each year, Heart of the Pines Chorus participates in our Region's chorus competition in Houston, Texas. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other and receive constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. In 2016, International Competition will be held in Las Vegas, NV. Click here to learn more.


Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Heart of the Pines Chorus currently one quartet, Texas Accent, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.



Heart of the Pines Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a non-profit organization of approximately 30,000 members in choruses and quartets worldwide. The Iternational headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
