Educational Symposium Benefiting...
Coaches, Directors, Arrangers, Section Leaders, Quartets and all who love barbershop harmony are invited to sing and celebrate at Sweet Adelines 2019 International Education Symposium!
Travel to Manchester, UK and immerse yourself in the wonderful world of barbershop with some of the best Sweet Adelines instructors, such as Sandy Marron, Judy Pozsgay, Paula Davis, Lynda Keever, Lori Lyford, 2019 Quartet Champion, ClassRing and more. There will be something for everyone - quartets, coaches, directors, arrangers and anyone who just wants to learn more about our art form. Plus the dynamic Deke Sharon will be on hand teaching classes too!
IES 2019 attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful harmonies from some of the best up-and-coming youth quartets during the 2019 Rising Star Quartet Contest. Past winners of the Rising Star Quartet Contest include ClassRing, our 2019 Queens of Harmony.
All this barbershop learning, socializing and singing will be taking place in Manchester, UK - a city rich in history and vitality. You will want to plan a few extra days to explore this city, dubbed the "UK's Music Capital."
