The following choruses have also been part of our story...
 
These choruses merged in 1964 to become Ramapo Valley Chorus:
  • Ramapo Chorus
  • Valley Chorus
 
Under the direction of Renee Craig, Ramapo Valley became a three-time International Champion chorus. The chapter re-chartered with Sweet Adelines in 2007 to become Harmony Celebration. The name Ramapo Valley was retired with Renee Craig, in honor of her legacy and accomplishments.
  • Ramapo Valley Chorus
 
In 2014, Region 15 welcomed eight chapters from Region 16 during a re-drawing of the SAI regional boundaries. Capitaland, City of the Hills, Saratoga Soundtrack, Seneca Soundwaves, and Spirit of Syracuse are active chapters – but these three chapters have since disbanded:
  • Carousel Harmony Chorus
  • River Valley Chorus
  • Seven Valley Chorus
