Most Winter Texans are familiar with Men of A-Chord and Sweet Adeline’s. They were groups that performed in the Winter Texan parks from January through March. In recent years, the groups have changed, numbers have gone up and down as well, and so has the makeup of the groups.
Recently, the Sweet Adeline’s disbanded. So, this last fall, those from Sweet Adeline’s that still wanted to perform joined with Men of A-Chord and are now the Men and Women of A-Chord.
The group still performs Barbershop Harmony, but now you have a wider range of voices to listen to. The group is still performing at Winter Texan parks throughout the Valley.
Something else you might not know about the group, with funds collected from their shows, anything over their expenses, goes to music scholarships to high school seniors in the Valley.
They still have at least six shows this season.
