globe are joining together to teach the world to sing. Women

Sweet Adelines International members share a love for music
and singing four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop style.
Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal
training, will find a part that fits her voice range.
"We learn about singing, we learn about dancing, we learn
about performance, we learn about friendships, we learn
about working together. It's the most wonderful place to
be," expressed Virginia Humphrey-Taylor from Christchurch
City Chorus in New Zealand.
Henna Kemppainen belongs to one of Sweet Adelines' most
remote choruses in Porvoo, Denmark and treasures her
worldwide family. "It's a sisterhood and it's the joy of
life. I could not possibly think of my life without the joy
of music and all of my friends in barbershop," said
For many long-standing members the passion seems to grow
stronger. "We've moved many times and in every place there's
been a Sweet Adelines world to go to. It's not a hobby, it
is a way of life," explained Scottsdale chorus member Janice
Blake from Arizona.
Ellie Mills from Lace City Chorus in the United Kingdom
stated, "Being a Sweet Adeline has given me the most amazing
opportunities to grow as an individual. I've made fantastic
friendships that will hopefully be in my life forever."
