VoCal Mates


 Sue Harmeyer at G4G

Welcome to VoCal-Mates, the auxiliary (support) group for Voices of California.  We consider it a privilege to encourage a continually improving, wonderful bunch of singers as they hone their craft and entertain grateful audiences!  


The purpose of this loosely-structured group of guys and gals (spouses and significant others) is to provide support for our chorus of a cappella singers primarily through fundraising, managing the lobby at VoCal performances, and assisting with other VoCal events as needed throughout the year.    


Although it is not mandatory, you are welcome to attend Thursday rehearsals, occasional VoCal-Mates meetings, and of course, the VoCal performances.  

If you are interested in receiving VoCal Mates newsletters, please send your e-mail address to

VoCal Mates Info along with any other contact information you wish to share so that you can receive updates.  


We understand that jobs, distance from the West Sacramento rehearsal area, and “life”, can affect/limit the amount of participation by our VoCal-Mates. However, we do encourage all Mates to give the personal, daily support/understanding at home that only a Mate can provide his/her singer.  


Whether we’re talking about the audiences, upcoming generations of singers, or our chorus, Voices of California and their Mates are grateful for and focused upon the enrichment of lives through singing.
