Let the Good Times Roll…With Sweet Adelines Education!
You’ll want to be in that number…
“The original purpose for which Sweet Adelines was organized in 1945 was educational, to teach and train its members in musical harmony and appreciation.”
— Edna Mae Anderson, founder of Sweet Adelines
Our founder wrote those words in the September 1954 issue of The Pitch Pipe. She would be proud to see that Sweet Adelines have lived up to and grown that original purpose in so many ways—including keeping education an engaging and important part of our International Convention!
Along with competition, food and fun, this year’s Convention begins with an exciting lineup of barbershop education classes taught by world class instructors! Make time to arrive in New Orleans early in the week for classes on topics including showmanship myths, “Part Smart” instruction and a New Orleans-themed Harmony Parade event. (Harmony Parade requires pre-event registration, so be sure to visit the Sweet Adelines website for information!)
Learn from rock stars of women’s barbershop later in the week with the ever-popular Quartet Education Class with 2018 Queens of Harmony Lustre and Chorus Education Class with 2019 International Champions Scottsdale Chorus.
This year’s classes will include lots of singing, so bring your water bottle, your voice and your enthusiasm! Raise the rafters with old friends and new while you grow your knowledge of our wonderful “hobby.” See you in class!
Watch for class specifics coming soon!
