Coastline Show Chorus (CSC) is an award winning a cappella, barbershop harmony women’s chorus. As members of Sweet Adelines International, Coastline has gained an international reputation for exciting, high-energy performances. Since 2002, CSC has received eight first place regional medals. First place medals awarded in May 2017 qualified the chorus to represent the North East Atlantic Region at the October 2018 Sweet Adelines International Competition in St Louis- Coastline’s eighth appearance on the International stage.
The Coastline Show Chorus, formerly the Mount Hope Bay Chorus, was formed in 1995 by three friends who shared a passion for barbershop singing. What began as a small group of 11 women in Warwick, RI, has blossomed into a chorus of 65+ members. While most of Coastline’s singers hail from Rhode Island, or Central/Southeast Massachusetts, members come from all over the Northeast, from Maine to Connecticut and even Upstate New York!
In 2003, at their first international contest in Phoenix AZ, the chorus received 9th place medals and was the first chorus from Rhode Island to compete at the Sweet Adelines International Competition. After this first appearance, Coastline has reached the final rounds at the International Competition three more times at their next appearances. Coastline represented the North Atlantic Region 1 at the Sweet Adelines International Competition in Las Vegas, NV in October 2016.
Coastline Show Chorus is a dynamic and fun-loving women's chorus that blends a cappella harmony with energetic choreography! Coastline performs a wide variety of songs – Top 40’s hits, Broadway melodies, rousing patriotic anthems, holiday & gospel hymns as well as barbershop favorites. Coastline frequently partners with the Narragansett Bay Chorus of the men’s Barbershop Harmony Society for memorable Christmas Holiday Shows.
Coastline is passionately committed to musical excellence and advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony. Coastline supports the area’s musical heritage performing at a variety of venues in Southeast Massachusetts and Rhode Island. They are frequent performers at the City of Attleboro’s Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day celebrations. They are proud supporters of the Barbershop Harmony Society’s annual Harmony Explosion Camps for the area’s young singers.
Although the chorus is headquartered in Providence, RI, Coastline rehearses over the border in Attleboro, MA on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm at the La Salette Shrine (947 Park Street). New members are welcomed throughout the year and every rehearsal is open to guests. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range with the help of the chorus’ musical leaders. No prior choral experience is necessary – only a love of singing.
Director – Gail Jencik
A native New Yorker, Gail has spent the last 25 years traveling the world as a professional choreographer, visual and musical coach. Her expertise has taken her to nearly all 50 states and more than six countries across the globe. A member of the faculty of Sweet Adelines International, her coaching credits include more than a dozen gold medalist chorus and quartet competitors in Sweet Adelines International, The Barbershop Harmony Society, and Harmony, Inc.
In 1997, when the newly formed Coastline Show Chorus needed a director, Gail stepped off the risers to fill the position. In her first six years as director, the chorus grew while she led the chorus to multiple 1st place medals with the highest scores ever received in the North Atlantic Region 1 contests. Having earned her credentials as a Master Director, she has gone on to direct Coastline at Sweet Adelines International contests to 9th, 4th and 7th place medals.
