About Our Region


North Atlantic Region 1 is part of Sweet Adelines International, a worldwide organization of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education and performance. Learn more at the Sweet Adelines official website.


Our region covers New England and Northern New York, USA as well as Quebec, Canada. We have 22 chartered choruses and more than 40 quartets. Click here to see a regional map and find a chorus near you.


In the spring of every year, our region holds a competition in Springfield, MA. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to perform and get constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a selected city each year.  In 2009, the International Competition was held in Nashville. The 2010 competition will be held in Seattle.



Most choruses have a number of members who form their own quartets. Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.

Sweet Adelines International is one of the largest singing organizations for women in the world and we'd love for you to be a part of this international musical sisterhood.  Please contact us and we'll be glad to help you find a chorus near you!!
