Up All Night 2017

  Regional competitions are a major and fun part of the barbershop world that help keep us focused on raising the bar of performing excellence. We come together in a spirit of lighthearted contest, to see who's really got top form. We put our best musical talents on display, cheer each other on, and once the medals have been handed out, we sing and party into the night! Many hours of preparation lead up to this event that rewards everyone--whether they have won a medal or not.

International

SAI Logo BWIn the fall,  the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wild cards" -- gather together at International Competition. In 2016 International competition was held in Las Vegas, NV  October 16-22. You can view parts of that contest in an archived webcast on the Sweet Adelines International website. This is the ultimate female barbershop competition -- not to be missed!

Here is a link to the 2016 International Competition Chorus Finals. Watching these choruses perform, will give you greater insight about the many skills that must combine simultaneously to produce a winning performance. 


                                                    2016 Chorus Finals


It is obvious from the  selections in each chorus' 4 song "package," that Sweet Adelines International has come a long way since its 1945 beginning. Although the traditional barbershop classics and arrangements still dominate, contemporary themes--making connections, celebrating diversity, empowering women, promoting independence--are now part of the SAI repertoire. Although the harmony is still "in the barbershop style," it has an edgier quality that is challenging for the singer and for the listener. But versatility and challenge are what Sweet Adelines is about, and this trend is exciting.
