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!



Often in the spring, the Dogwood Blossoms Chorus makes the trip to Cleveland, Ohio to compete in our regional contest. Dozens of choruses and quartets come together to sing and compete. There are a number of judging categories, and the groups bring complete and entertaining packages. The competition is shared in a webcast; this is available to the public via a link on our regional page at Be a part of the fun - watch and root for Dogwood Blossoms Chorus



Sometime in the fall the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wildcards" -- gather together at International Competition. In 2024, International Competition will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, on October 28 - November 2. If you would like to plan ahead, the dates for 2025 are October 20- 25 in Columbus Ohio. 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!
