Making history in Las Vegas!

Watch Endeavour Harmony Chorus - our 2014 Region 34 Champions achieved an International 10th place medal in 2015 in Las Vegas. Our region's first ever top 10 placing after qualifying with a regional record score.

What is barbershop harmony?


Barbershop Harmony is four part, unaccompanied, close harmony singing. In most cases, barbershop music is taken from 20th (and 21st!) century popular music.

It can be sung by a quartet, with each singer singing her own part, or by larger groups of anything up to 200 singers - still singing in four parts. Barbershoppers do more than just sing...we entertain!

With colourful costumes and expressive choreography, we like nothing more than strutting our stuff for a wide range of audiences.

Flash Mob at The Canberra Centre, May 2012

Being part of a Chorus offers more than just a weekly rehearsal. YouTube_flashmob.jpgAround 250 members, representing Choruses from all over the country came together on May 16 2012 to sing I Am Australian to promote the Sweet Adelines regional convention being held at the Australian National University's Llewellyn Hall.

 

A pretty mean feat with only one rehearsal! Those who participated have a lifetime memory of this one-time experience of singing together.

 

Want to see and hear other Choruses in action? Take a look at the clips available at the Sweet Adelines International website.

A range of eLearning resources is available to Members via the Sweet Adelines International Online Education Centre. Click here for a list of available resources (current as at January 2014).
