Melbourne Chorus


There are now 32 chartered choruses in the Southern Cross Region, with another 2 prospective choruses working towards their charter.  A chartered chorus has more than 15 members, performs above a standard musical level and is administratively sound.

Chorus life is a combination of a friendly community, teamwork, personal growth and a range of social activities. That's why Sweet Adelines International has adopted the phrase Real Women, Real Harmony and Real Fun!

Most choruses are delighted to have visitors at their rehearsals - we all work better with an audience! So if you are interested in hearing what barbershop is all about (and hopefully once you've heard, you'll be hooked), why not visit a chorus near you?

Book a performance!

Booking a Sweet Adelines International Chorus for a performance is easy and Choruses have a range of performance packages by large and small ensembles as well as quartets. They are popular at Civic ceremonies, corporate events, Christmas and all kinds of other celebrations and events. Locate a Chorus near you on our Chorus List by State and ask about performance packages to suit your occasion.

Start a Chorus!

If you are interested in knowing how to start a Sweet Adelines chorus, a comprehensive overview to the step is available on our website. The Southern Cross Regional Management Team provides resources and support to get you started. For more information on starting a chorus or your group becoming affiliated, contact us.
