Sierra Gold Chorus, the Auburn Chapter of Sweet Adelines International, is happy to announce its new director, Ron Black.

Black comes to Sierra Gold Chorus with an impressive and strong musical and barbershop background. The chorus is looking forward to growing in musical skill and size under his leadership.

Sierra Gold Chorus and Black invite women of all ages to attend rehearsals and join this fabulous art form of women’s barbershop, a cappella harmony. Monday rehearsals are at 7 p.m. at Burback Hall, DeWitt Center, 11577 E Ave., Auburn.

For more information check out the Website sierragoldchorus.org.

Black attended both Immaculate Heart and Occidental Colleges in Los Angeles, majoring in Renaissance vocal and instrumental performance. He has also conducted both vocal and instrumental performances of classical works and musical theater.

He has been active for 40 years in the Barbershop Harmony Society. He sang bass in the Great Western Timbre Company, 1986 Far Western District quartet champion and 1988 15th-place international semifinalist, and currently fourth place senior quartet.

He also sang bass with Rhythm and Rhyme, which took 14th place in the 1997 BHS International Competition. He has directed the Fresno Gold Note Chorus, seventh-place BHS International Competitor in 1984 and 1985 and consistent top-five finisher in Far Western District competitions from 1979 through 1999.

He is associate director of the Sacramento based Voices of California. In 2011, Black was inducted into the Far Western District Hall Of Fame and holds the title of master director.

He coaches many quartets and choruses in the U.S. and abroad. In his infrequent spare time he eats, sleeps and writes computer accounting software.
