Welcome to Sweet Adelines Australia

Sweet Adelines Australia is a region of Sweet Adelines International, a national organisation of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of Barbershop Harmony through education, competition and performance.

Our vision is to be the leading musical organisation for Australian women.

Almost 1400 women singers across the country meet regularly in Sweet Adelines Choruses to learn, practice and enjoy being part of a thriving music community. They perform in large and small choral groups - Choruses and Quartets, regularly performing in public and competing at local, regional and international level. If you've ever considered joining a choir, then we invite you to join the fun, friendship and harmony of an a cappella chorus!

We have groups in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra, Perth, Gold Coast and many regional centres in between!

Visit the About Us and Find Us tabs to discover how you can join or book a performance near you.

Regional Management Team contacts can be found here.


Meet our International Contest representatives for Las Vegas

At the Sweet Adelines International Convention held in the MGM Grand Garden Arena Las Vegas during October 2016, our region will be represented by our 2015 Regional Champions A Cappella West, of Perth and our 2016 Quartet Champions Hi-Jinx Quartet, also from Perth.

Choruses compete at International the year following their regional win to offer time to raise funds and prepare for international travel, Quartets compete at International in the same year as their regional win.

The Melbourne Chorus will also compete as the region's first-ever Wild Card entrant in the Chorus contest in the 2016 competition in Las Vegas.
