Rising Star Quartet Contest
Save The Date!
Sweet Adelines International's 2021 Rising Star Quartet Contest for singers age 26 and younger takes place on July 16, 2021 in conjunction with The Coronet Club’s Queens’ College. Join us at the Eisemann Center in Richardson, Texas (USA)! This contest is open to the first 15 quartets who enter. Look for more information, including Rules and Regulations, in December 2020.
Contest Entry will open March 8, 2021.
For 2021 only, the age limit has been raised to 26 to accommodate singers who could not compete because of the cancellation of the 2020 contest.
In accordance with our guiding principles on the Culture of Belonging and Diversity & Inclusion (D&I), Sweet Adelines International rejects any song with racist lyrics, messages or history, and we consider them unacceptable for performance in any setting. Please note that all contest songs must be assessed and cleared prior to performance.
