2019 has started and what a start we’ve had! At our first rehearsal we were welcomed to the sport hall by a red carpet leading up to our own back-drop and roll-up banner where we had our pictures taken, as if we were stars on our way to a gala receiving an award. Later on our eminent directors danced their way in, singing Proud Mary with the new lyrics “Hat-trick! Hat-trick! Want to do a hat-trick!” If that start didn’t lift the roof we also got special member cups from our marketing and social committee; black cups with our new logo printed with gold letters. Perfect for tea or coffee. A number of other items will soon be available in our web shop – stay tuned!
We’re happy to announce that Vironova is first to join as a sponsor during our 35th anniversary. Vironova is a Swedish, innovative company in the biotech industry that develops advanced technology for a faster and simpler development and production of new pharmaceuticals.
There are several important values we share, although the contexts in which we are active are very different. For example, we both strive for innovation and international success in our respective fields. We also share the passion for great and diverse leadership.
Sometimes life doesn’t turn out the way we hoped it would. Most of us know someone who has had to face major challenges and who could really use some extra love and support. In tonight’s episode of the Swedish tv show ”Sofias änglar” (Sofia’s Angels), we sing for Tina, our dear friend and former member who is struggling with multiple sclerosis.
Our journey began in 1983, with only 54 members. Today, we've grown by more than 100 women of all ages. Barbershop truly is a hobby (read: lifestyle) that goes beyond age . These facts and figures below can tell. [To be continued.... #ronningeshow35yrs]
Say hello to our new logotype! We’re literally stepping right into the spotlights with our new look. Since there are many show choruses out there, we wanted to feature the most unique part of our name, Rönninge. The symbol above our name can be read as either the flooding light from four spotlights on the stage or, if you like, a royal Swedish crown or a barbershop crown as a strong symbol of what we have achieved and what we are still dreaming of.
The logotype and typeface has been designed by graphic designer and our own member Kicki Braun.
Today is International Women's Day: a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. So on this day we want to celebrate all of the female barbershop community, with Sweet Adelines International being a very important part of that community.
It’s important to dare to try new things. It might not always turn out great, but if you never push any boundaries, your true potential may remain hidden. Sometimes, daring experiments even turn out to be awesome. Or, at least, entertaining.
The world of barbershop is filled with classic songs that people have enjoyed to for the longest time. Although the shape and style may have varied, we’ve had a crush on “New York, New York” for many years.
Interview with Britt-Heléne Bonnedahl, founder and director of Rönninge Show Chorus:
“In 1983 we were a group of women from Rönninge who sang in the first female barbershop chorus here in Sweden, Telge Harmony from Södertälje. After some time we began thinking about starting something of our own here in Rönninge. It took some convincing to make me believe it was a good idea.
