      Sweet Adelines to Perform and Compete in Chattanooga March 24-26
      Chattanooga, TN, March 1, 2011 – Hundreds of Sweet Adelines will visit Chattanooga this month for the annual Region 23 Convention and Competition. This exciting a cappella event begins with the Rising Star Contest held in the Marriott Convention Center, Plaza Ballroom. This contest features quartets of young women 25 years old and younger, and the winning quartet will compete in the International Rising Star contest held in Houston, TX in October. The Rising Star contest is a cornerstone of Sweet Adeline International’s Young Women in Harmony program, which enriches the lives of young people through musical education and performances.

      On Friday, March 25 at 4:00pm at Chattanooga Convention Center, Region 23 quartets will compete, and the winner of the regional contest also earns the right to compete with other top quartets from around the world in the International quartet contest in Houston. The choruses will hit the Auditorium stage with four-part a cappella harmonies on Saturday at 12:30. The winning chorus will compete in the 2011 Sweet Adelines International contest which will be held in Honolulu, HI. The evening of Saturday 3/26 there will be a Show of Champions – featuring the medalists from both the quartet and chorus contest.

      Members of Sweet Adelines Region 23 (www.region23.com) will be traveling to the convention from Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and the panhandle of Florida. A mass sing will be held in the Marriott lobby at 12:00pm on Friday, March 25th. “This is our second mass sing,” said Natalie Allen, Region 23 Events Coordinator, “Last year we had a great time sharing our sound. It’s a free event and we hope to have an even bigger crowd this year. Our members love coming to Chattanooga; it’s such a friendly city with great facilities.”

      Chattanooga residents are very welcome at the contest performances and the Show of Champions. “First time audience members are often amazed at the variety of songs that are performed in the barbershop style,” added Ms. Allen, “The women work all year for this opportunity, and, I have to say, we put on a great show.” Tickets are $20 for each contest and will be available at the Convention Center one hour before each performance. The Show of Champions is $15 and tickets will be available at the door.
