Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility

CAC and Sweet Adelines International acknowledge a history of exclusionary practices that limited membership, including around race, ethnicity, and gender. Learn how Sweet Adelines International is addressing racism and supporting chapters in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work.


Capital Accord is committed to improving our musical skills and believes that providing a welcoming and inclusive singing space will further enrich our sound, performance, and appeal. We put that commitment into practice, including  through song choices, member education, pro bono performances, and a Culture of Belonging project that is building our capacity to better reflect and serve our community through barbershop music.

Sharing Voices: Race and #Real Talk 2024
Dialogues & Concert

Are you a member of a music community or organization in Montgomery County or the broader DC - Maryland-Virginia area? 


Interested in bridging the divide between music communities and organizations linked to racism, segregation, gender, or other social constructs?


The Capital Accord Chorus and Harmony’s African American Legacy Organization (HALO) invite you to join a Sharing Voices program, to begin to tear down barriers to sharing our joy for music and better serving our communities.


Participants will meet from March through June 2024 in a series of dialogue sessions (most via Zoom) and join in a culminating  June 15, 2024 community benefit concert.  There is no cost for participation, other than your commitment of time and goodwill.
