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

Because of Covid, our last competition was in 2019. It was held in Syracuse, New York, and we walked away with the most improved chorus award, with an increase of 110 points, and also won the 3rd place small chorus award. Needless to say, we were thrilled!  During Competition and on stage, each chorus is required to sing a ballad and an uptune. We sang On the Sunnyside of the Street, and A Bundle of Old Love Letters. 

In 2017, we also received the most improved chorus award, with an increase of 80 points over the score from 2016. 
We are judged in 4 categories: Sound, Music, Expression & Showmanship.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

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 2022 International Competition was held in September in Phoenix, Arizona. Go to www.sweetadelinesinternational.com for more info.
