American barbershop quartet singing is a musical art form enjoyed by many. Sweet Adelines International helps to preserve this music by promoting and hosting competitions for barbershop singers, and these singers are all women. The quartets and chorus groups that sing the four part harmony a cappella music recognizable as American barbershop music will be coming to Chattanooga March 18th through the 20th for the Regional Competitions.
The Scenic City Chorus is the Chattanooga chapter of Sweet Adelines International. In addition to singing as a chorus in competitions and as entertainment, Scenic City Chorus members also make up four quartets. The spring competition will include divisions for chorus, quartet, and rising stars showcasing younger singers ranging in age from 11 to 25 years old.
A complete schedule of the competition can be found on the Region 23 website. Tickets to the Show of Champions on Saturday night can be purchased at the door or in advance from Sweet Adelines members.
