What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Mental Health is such an important part of our current society. Individuals find happiness and mental wellness in a variety of ways, including enjoying success in relationships, in business and in personal growth. Being part of an organization that educates, empowers and provides a community of support and friendship helps individuals to feel a sense of well being, success and productivity. Women of Note provides a place where women can sing, teach, share ideas, share personal successes as well as issues, and enjoy a true sisterhood. While the main goal of the chorus is to share the joy of harmony with its members and the community, being part of Women of Note also fills the members mental wellness cup. As a side effect of providing a safe and caring community, the chorus members are able to identify issues with our members before they become unmanageable and therefore contribute so much to the mental health of all of our members.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Women of Note is part of Sweet Adelines International, a global women's singing organization. Our goal is to be inclusive to all women everywhere, no matter race, religion, income level or skill level, among other factors. The mission Women of Note is to promote musical excellence in 4-part a cappella harmony by providing music education, encouraging personal and artistic growth and inspiring others with the joy of music through community outreach.

Women of Note strives to provide a safe and welcoming community for all women who want to make music, learn, lead and enjoy the benefits of music and sisterhood.

We achieve these goals by providing weekly educational meetings, offering leadership opportunities in administration and musical leadership, performing in the community and providing barbershop music education to students in our area.

Through these activities, we hope to educate and empower women through music, community and education.

Women of Note is more than able to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our members. We have a trained and talented directing staff, led by a paid Music Director. Our Associate Director and musical leaders are all volunteers that have received music education and have the ability to lead and teach other members.

We have programs in place for all skill levels and types of members. We have leadership opportunities for those who are interested, committee work for those who want to be involved and through our parent organization, Sweet Adelines International, many programs where members can learn new skills.

We have a marketing team that promotes the chorus to the community and to potential members so that our music can be enjoyed by the larger community.

We compete annually in regional competition with the opportunity to compete in the international competition, thus giving our members another platform for performance and personal musical growth.

We have been a successful singing organization since 1998. The chorus has competed regionally and internationally, has maintained a mid-level size membership, has performed throughout South Florida and continues to get new performances each year and share the joy of music with the community.

Women of Note will continue to provide a nurturing environment for its members, will continue to educate and grow and will continue to share the joy of music with the community and beyond. With the new technology available in the last 5 years, we will continue to share our sound via social media and online platforms so we can reach larger audiences. We will continue to hone our craft to be the very best at what we do while supporting our members to grow musically, mentally and meaningfully.
