Queen Charlotte Chorus is a membership organization of women singers, who meet regularly to rehearse, perform, socialize and have fun. We currently have more than 40 singers of all ages, experiences and life stages. We received our charter on July 1, 1965 and have been singing barbershop harmony throughout the Charlotte area ever since!
Queen Charlotte Chorus members are passionate about singing and part of that passion is a commitment to education in the art of barbershop music. Vocal instruction is an integral part of each rehearsal and critical to the chorus experience. We are continually learning from our director, each other and visiting coaches who are masters in the art of barbershop.
Each spring, Queen Charlotte Chorus participates in our region's annual competition. Contest weekend is a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other and a panel of judges who provide constructive feedback on every part of our performance. The chorus and quartet who receive the highest score at the regional competition travel to the Sweet Adelines International Competition, held annually in the fall.
Queen Charlotte Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a worldwide women's nonprofit singing organization committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through opportunities in education, performance and competition.
