A Cappella Joy, called AJoy (ay-joy) for short, belongs to Sweet Adelines International (SAI), an organization of 30,000+ women barbershop singers worldwide. The chorus is based in Kirkland, Washington, and is a chapter in Sweet Adelines 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 various private and public venues throughout the year and offer singing Valentines and holiday greetings. In 2018, we won first place in the Sweet Adelines Region 13 chorus competition, qualifying to participate in the international competition in New Orleans in September 2019.
