Competition and Convention:
Regional competition is the highlight of our Sweet Adelines year. Each spring, Choruses and Quartets share with each other the results of their hard work the previous year and are evaluated by a panel of judges. Competition is an educational experience. Scores chart progress in the performance of barbershop harmony. The first place chorus and quartet represent Region 2 at International competition.
The fiscal year is May 1st through April 30th. Choruses are assessed an established amount per member per year to support the programs and expenses of the region. Dues vary by chorus.
"Border Lights" newsletter is published in the summer, fall and winter. This focuses on happenings in our choruses and helps personalize Region 2 with news about its members.
Programs are available for music teachers and their students. Visit our web site for more information.
