AJoy was so happy and honored to have won the Sweet Adelines International (SAI) Region 13 contest in May 2023.
We won both highest scoring chorus overall and highest scoring midsize/AA chorus, which is for choruses with 31-60 singers on stage. We were also thrilled to score over 25 points higher than any score AJoy had earned in any previous competition. We invite you to watch our performance on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPL6AUeEY60.
Our regional win earned us a berth at the SAI International competition to be held starting in late October 2024. We have decided to enter the Harmony Classic AA competition, which is specifically for the five highest scoring midsize choruses in the world in 2023 regional competitions (pending acceptance of invitations and other factors). The 2024 competition will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, famed for its jazz music, kind people, and delicious barbecue! More information about the competition can be found here.
The structure of the Harmony Classic competitions, one for both small and midsize choruses, is the performance of a "package" that includes thematic acting and spoken communication along with barbershop singing. We are so excited to get an opportunity to produce a creative performance in this format.
Stay tuned for more information on how to see AJoy perform between now and the competition! And for many of you, we hope you'll be in the in-person or virtual audience at the show! We'll be on stage in Kansas City on Tuesday, October 29th, 2024.
