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!
Every spring, dozens of choruses and quartets from Spirit of the Midwest Region 5 make the trip to compete in our regional contest to sing and compete. There are a number of judging categories, and the groups bring complete and entertaining packages. Scroll down for specifics regarding our latest regional competition. (Region 5 memberes may login to the Members Only Section for even more information.) Email questions about competition to our Competition Coordinator by clicking here.

In the fall of each year, the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wildcards" -- gather together at International competition. In 2014, International competition will be held in Baltimore, MD, on November 3-8. 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! For more information or to register, click here.
