Competition is a major and fun part of the barbershop world that helps keep us focused on raising the bar of performing excellence. We come together in a spirit of lighthearted contest, to see who's really got top form. We root for each other, cheer each other on, and once the medals have been handed out, we sing and party into the night!
Every year, in late spring, Capitaland
Sometime in the fall the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wildcards" -- gather together at International competition. In 2013, the International competition will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii!
Click here for details about the convention, found on the Sweet Adeline's International website.
You can view the complete contest on a live webcast on the Sweet Adelines International website. This is the ultimate female barbershop competition -- not to be missed!
Watch the webcast of the contest and root for your favorites from your home! Be sure to keep an eye out for our own members who make the trip to see the contest in person.

April Sweet Adeline of the Month: Linda Hayes
Linda wasted no time getting back into the swing of chorus life and took on several responsibilities with jewelry and costuming that really put us "in the pink" at regional contest this year! Searching online for just the right chorus shirts and earrings, as well as organizing and coordinating the sizing, ordering, and distribution of these items, Linda was a major factor in getting it all done in time for contest. Here's to a job well done Linda!
March Sweet Adeline of the Month: Michaela Phillips
Besides being a great tenor, Michaela has been serving as a liaison between Marianne our Director, and the rest of the chorus, taking care of details that can easily fall through the cracks. She sends reminders, keeps track of coaching notes as well as musical changes; she is our collective memory! Thanks for your good work Michaela!
Capitaland Chorus 2013 Sweet Adeline of the Year: Dodie Gearing
In addition to being bass section leader and music library coordinator, Dodie devotes much of her time to making Capitaland Chorus the best it can be! She is there to open and set up the rehearsal hall when needed, participates in sing outs as a solid bass singer, and in general is there to help wherever it is needed. Dodie is a most worthy recipient of this honor for this year, and the chorus extends its gratitude to her for all she does!
