Our region is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have 19 choruses made up of women of all ages, all walks of life, and from all parts of the area.
The main purpose of our region is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We also perform Singing Telegrams around Valentines Day. Our choruses are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out each chorus's website.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will receive coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.

In the spring of every year, our choruses participate in the Region 6 chorus competition. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories advance to compete at the International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. In 2020, International Competition will be held in Louisville, KY.
Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Our region currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
Our region is a chapter of Sweet Adelines, International, a non-profit organization of approximately 30,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
