  • Summer Camp for singers!
  •  Date Posted: Mon, Jun 12 2023
    Summer Camp for singers!
    Are you a singer looking for a fun summer activity? If so, the Shore Notes women’s chorus is hosting a ‘summer camp’ on four Mondays: July 31, August 7, August 14 and August 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and you are invited to discover the joy of a cappella singing! We welcome 18 and older (mothers and daughters too!). 

    Sign Up Here:

    You need not read music to attend. If you’re unsure of your singing range, you will be voice tested to determine which of the four parts suits you best.   

    On Monday, August 28 at 7:30, the program finale will be a Friends & Family night, where you and the chorus will perform the two songs you learned at camp. Get ready for a standing ovation!

    And the icing? If you wish to join the Shore Notes Chorus, you will find a hobby and friendships to last a lifetime. 

    Rehearsals are at Okatee Baptist Church, 5467 N. Okatie Hwy (Route 170), Ridgeland (Hilton Head and Beaufort chorus members carpool to rehearsal.)

    To register for Summer Camp, please fill out this form.   

    For questions, please call Barbara at (843) 705-6852.

  • Shore Notes retreat weekend held in Beaufort
  •  Date Posted: Tue, Mar 28 2023
    Shore Notes retreat weekend held in Beaufort
    Members of the Hilton Head Shore Notes attended a weekend retreat in Beaufort, SC, on March 24 - 26, where they spent many hours on the risers rehearsing the two songs that they will perform at the Region 9 Competition in Daytona Beach, later in the Spring. They were coached by Kim Higdon, director of Bridges of Harmony Chorus in Jacksonville, FL, and lead by Iris Christ, director of the Shore Notes. In addition to honing their skills on the competition songs, they also enjoyed dinner together at one of Beaufort's many downtown restaurants, and on Saturday evening, divided up into "family teams" and competed with each other in a hilarious game of Family Feud, complete with family talent and lots of laughter! 

    If you would like more information about the Hilton Head Shore Notes, please call 843-705-6852 or email
