Hickory Tree Chorus

(973) 980-8466

Hickory Tree is an award-winning women's chorus dedicated to the all-American art form of singing four-part a cappella harmony in barbershop style. We hope you will join us for our Upcoming Performances.

Chartered in 1968, Hickory Tree — a 501(c)(3) organization — is an award-winning women's chorus singing four-part a cappella harmony in barbershop style. We're a chapter of Sweet Adelines International. Our 70+ members hail from over 40 communities, Wantage to Toms River and Hackettstown to Staten Island. We make the trip each week for the chance to sing popular music, tender ballads, and novelty tunes in those close harmonies we love. At the same time, we improve our musical skills, socialize with a friendly group of women, and perform throughout northern New Jersey.

Throughout the year, we are booked to perform for various organizations, business groups, senior living facilities, schools, and community events. Each fall we present a full-length original musical show. At MySpace, you can hear Hickory Tree perform two of our most popular numbers, "Believe It Or Not" and "Friend Like Me." Here is a list of awards we've won.

Our director, Carolyn Schmidt, is a 30-plus year veteran of barbershopping, and both a Master Director and Certified Arranger in Sweet Adelines.
