The Quartet of Nations Region 31 regional convention brings together members and other barbershop harmony lovers from the UK and Netherlands every year to celebrate all things about singing a cappella in four-part harmony in barbershop style. It provides an opportunity to see and listen to all-women choruses and quartets compete for several recognition including the honour of representing the region at the Sweet Adelines International Convention.

Education workshops on barbershop singing techniques are also available during convention weekend. These workshops are facilitated by renowned faculty from abroad as well as our own region.

The QUARTET OF NATIONS REGION 31 is a vibrant community of women singers in England, Scotland, Wales and the Netherlands. We are part of Sweet Adelines International, a worldwide organisation of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education, competition and performance. This independent, not-for-profit association is one of the world’s largest singing organisations for women.
