The Extension Chords is a group of 24 women who are active members of the Sacramento Valley Chorus, a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a barbershop singing organization. These women are available to perform in smaller venues that would not accommodate the larger 100+ member Sacramento Valley Chorus. We sing for a wide variety of groups, such as schools, retirement groups, and convalescent homes. Our purpose is to demonstrate our joy of singing and spread information about our uniquely American craft, four-part a cappella harmony in the barbershop tradition. We know we have succeeded when we notice the audience tapping their toes or singing along with us.

This musical group is directed by Dede NiblerShe has been a part of the Int'l organization for many years, has directed other choruses and sung in several quartets. She enjoys sharing her wealth of knowledge with The Extension Chords. She is also the director of the large chorus.


This group is available for performances. 

More information will be added as it becomes available. 

To contact the Extension Chords phone: Judi Naill, 916-761-2998
