Sweet Adelines Events

Our education events cover all aspects of a cappella and barbershop craft, vocal production, directing, visual leadership, arranging, competitions, performance skills, quartetting, administration and more! They’re also fun and social, as Sweet Adelines love being together.

The program combines classwork, workshopping and online learning. We try to bring opportunities as close as possible to where our members can take advantage of them.

Keep an eye on this page for activities, dates and how to book. We’ll also post news of opportunities happening internationally too.
