Competition

Competition is a major and fun part of the barbershop world that helps keep us focused on raising the bar of performing excellence. We come together in a spirit of lighthearted contest, to see who's really got top form. We root for each other, cheer each other on, and once the medals have been handed out, we sing and party into the night!

 

Regional

This year we had a great weekend in Syracuse New York at our Annual Regional Competition. As many as 1000 women attend and sing on stage.  We also join all these fantastic women at the steps of the Town Hall to participate in a “Mass Sing”.  The Mayor introduces us and we sing several songs that we all know, in perfect 4-part harmony.  During Competition and on stage, each chorus is required to sing a ballad and an uptune. 
We are judged in 4 categories: Sound, Music, Expression & Showmanship.

 

This year's contest was held from May 4 - 7, 2017 in Syracuse New York. Our chorus stayed at the Sheraton University Hotel. 

 

Choruses compete in 3 categories:
Small Chorus - up to 30 members, Medium Chorus - 31 to 60 members, Large Chorus - over 61 members
We practice all year for this competition and for the chance to sing in the final International Competition which is held once a year in different cities & countries.

 

In this year's 2017 competition, we were very pleased to have achieved our goal - to become the Most Improved Chorus! We worked hard all year on our vocal skills and our two songs - On The Sunnyside of the Street and A Bundle of Old Love Letters. We increased our score by 80 points - no small feat! We each received a medal and the chorus received a plaque for our efforts. Many thanks to our director, Catherine Robertson, for leading us to our goals.  

 

International

Sometime in the fall the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wildcards" -- gather together at International competition. This is the ultimate female barbershop competition -- not to be missed!

 The 2017 International Convention will be held in Las Vegas. Go to the International web site for more details - www.sweetadelinesinternational.com
