Competitiongroup shot_w_medals

Competition is a major and fun part of the barbershop world that helps 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 root for each other, cheer each other on and, once the medals have been handed out, we sing and party into the night!



Regionalreceiving award_on_stage

Starting in 2014, our regional competition will be held in Houston, Texas. Prior to that it was in Dallas for several years - and was also held in Oklahoma and Arkansas.  Dozens of choruses and quartets come together to sing and compete. There are a number of judging categories, and the groups bring complete and entertaining packages. If you're anywhere near Houston in the spring, please come be a part of the fun!  In 2012, we won the coveted Most Improved Chorus award, up 74 points from the previous year.  And in 2014, in our first competition in Houston, we placed 2nd in Division A (small chorus). And most recently - in 2018 - we earned medals for 3rd-place small chorus and 5th place overall.  Yea!!!!




In the fall, the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wildcards" -- gather together at International competition. In 2013, the International Competition was held in  in Honolulu, Hawaii;  in 2014 it was in Baltimore, Md; and from 2015-2017 it returns to Las Vegas. You can view the complete contest on a live webcast on the Sweet Adelines International website. This is the ultimate female barbershop competition -- not to be missed!


Barbies KenSeveral of our members have competed internationallly with Top of the Rock Chorus from Little Rock, Ark., as dual members during the past few years - and in 2009, they brought home 2nd-place silver medals! Some of the members who competed at that time in Nashville are (front, L-R) Carol Ogle, former member Ginger Hicks and Donna FIke. Member Mary Jo Brister is on the back row - with "Ken"! Top of the Rock's package celebrated Barbie's 50th birthday. It was quite the party! Carol, Donna and other members also competed internationally with Top of the Rock in '07 in Calgary, Canada.
