Competition is a major and fun part of the barbershop world that helps keep us focused on raising the bar of performance excellence. There are four judging categories: Sound, Music, Expression and Showmanship.  We come together in a spirit of lighthearted competition, 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 year in late April or Early May Harmony on the Sound Chorus makes the trip to Springfield, MA to participate in our regional contest. We are part of North Atlantic Region 1, which covers all of New England, the northeastern tip of New York State and the Canadian Maritimes.  Hundreds of members from the region's choruses and quartets make the trip to Springfield's Symphony Hall to compete.  If you're someone who's up for this kind of challenge, come join us!  If you think you'd rather be a fan, take the drive to Springfield in the spring to be a part of the fun, and root for Harmony on the Sound Chorus!

Sometime in the fall the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wildcards" -- gather together at the International Convention. The chorus competition is part of this week of barbershop immersion.  Each year it is held in a different city.  HOTS has competed in many places, including Hawaii, Denver and Las Vegas.  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!  Click here for more info on this year's International.
