Competition is the focal point of our annual regional convention. It provides an opportunity for members to learn and grow their performance through friendly contests. Members can participate to compete as part of a quartet and/or chorus. The qualifying winners may then proceed to represent the Quartet of Nations Region 31 in the International Competition & Convention that occurs toward the end of every calendar year.

Each registered quartet and/or chorus may choose to compete in one of the following contest divisions:

International Division

  • Competitors perform two contestable songs
  • Judges give a numerical score to each competitor as well as feedback
  • Winners become elibible to represent the region in the Sweet Adelines International Competition & Convention

Open Division
