Applicants can put their names forward by email, phone or by calling in any time this month at R.M. Binney Architects at 50 Boston Street in Malden with a print company quality résumé.

The vivacious award-winning a cappella singers include women of all ages and backgrounds who love to sing and have fun doing it. This is not to say that they do not take their music seriously, as they are dedicated to their voices, rehearsals, and competitions.

There are 22 members of the Sweet Adelines chorus, and rehearsals are held every Wednesday evening at the Cliftondale Congregational Church, 50 Essex St. in Saugus, MA. In addition to their focal point, which is making beautiful music, the choral group provides its members with opportunities for to make new friends and learn about costuming, make-up, and choreography.
