We are an active women's a cappella chorus from the greater Seattle area. Our members range in age from 18 to 70-something and come from all walks of life. We share the same love of music and dedication to excellence that have come to define Ajoy. We are always looking for new members, and welcome any woman, regardless of age, race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender expression or vocal range. So if you love to sing, and are eager to work hard, check us out some Monday night.
AJoy belongs to Sweet Adelines International (SAI), an organization of 30,000+ women barbershop singers world-wide. The chorus is based in Kirkland, Washington and is a Chapter of the North by Northwest SAI Region #13 which includes Washington, Alaska, Oregon, western Idaho, and Montana. Originally founded as the Lakeside Chorus in 1958, we have a proud tradition of musical excellence, education, and fun!
We'd love to share our music with you. Check out the Hire Us page for more details. We perform at different venues throughout the year from the Kirkland Summerfest and Seattle Storm games to retirement homes and the regional competition stage in Spokane. Last year we are even making our first trip to the Northwest Folklife Festival. This year we are performing in concert at the Kirkland Performance Center and on the Sweet Adelines International competition in Las Vegas.
