History

Harmonizing in the Triad area since 1969!

The Golden Triad Chorus (GTC) chartered with Sweet Adelines International in 1969 and has been an active performing group throughout the Triad area of Winston-Salem, High Point, and Greensboro, North Carolina, for 40+ years.  The chorus sings four-part harmony, in barbershop style.  Our repertoire includes a variety of music from old standards to contemporary, show tunes and patriotic to spiritual.

GTC has won first place in regional competition three times and has competed four times in International contests, placing second in the small chorus division in San Antonio, Texas, in 2000.  Our third place medal in small chorus division in regional competition in May 2005 resulted in an invitation to compete in the small chorus division at the Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio in August 2005, where we placed third in the small chorus division.
