Border Lakes Region 2 of Sweet Adelines International is a group of American and Canadian singers dedicated to the advancement of musical excellence in the barbershop style. We come from Michigan and Ontario to learn and grow together at various educational events and competitions throughout the year. This map pinpoints each of our choruses' locations.
Border Lakes Region 2 offers workshops and training in musical education, performance skills, directing, arranging, quarteting, administration and personal development. We utilize talented faculty from within and outside the barbershop community, both internationally and locally. Workshops are varied and provide a broad base of information appealing to singers of all skill levels and interests. Check out a list of upcoming educational opportunities here.
Regional competition is one of the highlights of our Sweet Adeline year. Each spring, choruses and quartets from Region 2 gather to demonstrate the results of their hard work over the year. An esteemed panel of judges evaluates each group and provides constructive comments for continued improvement. Performers are able to track their progress from year to year by the growth in their scores. The first place chorus and quartet have the honor of representing Region 2 at a future International competition. See more information about upcoming and past competitions here.
Border Lakes Region 2 is a chapter of Sweet Adelines, International, a non-profit organization of approximately 22,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The headquarters is located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
