There is no time like the present – come sing with us!

Sweet Adelines International is a worldwide organization of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education, performance and competition.

We sing a cappella music in four-part barbershop style. When four voice parts simultaneously execute on time and on pitch, the chord will produce an overtone. Hearing the sound of the fifth note “ring,” – it’s magic!   

Our members are beautifully unique – with celebrated and diverse backgrounds, of all different ages and occupations – all universally connected through song. Whether you sang years ago and long to perform again, or are still the first to sign up for karaoke, there is a place for you in our chorus!
