Young Women in Harmony

Sweet Adelines International is committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education and performance. As part of that commitment, the organization has created the Young Women in Harmony Program to assist music educators in including this style of music in their choral repertoire. Barbershop style, four voice parts performed a cappella, creates exciting chords and helps to develop strong, independent singers.
