Inspiring and empowering voices to joyfully harmonise the world


The QUARTET OF NATIONS is a dynamic community of singers and music-makers representing Sweet Adelines International in England, Scotland, Wales and the Netherlands. We come together regularly to celebrate singing a cappella four-part harmony in barbershop style.
