Sweet Adelines International
Over 70 Years of Sisterhood
After World War II, barbershop singing was growing increasingly popular for men. In 1945, a small group of women wanted to participate in the chord-ringing, fun-filled harmony that the men were singing. So these women organized "Sweet Adelines in America". From its humble beginnings in Tulsa, Oklahoma, it has evolved into an organization of nearly 21,000 singers, connecting women around the world in one sisterhood. They are dedicated to preserving the unique sound of a cappella barbershop harmony, sharing their passion for music and empowering women in every area of their lives.
