Welcome!

Forth Valley Chorus is an extraordinary group of women who love to sing barbershop music. We are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International.

 

Forth Valley Chorus are still getting together weekly to rehease over Zoom and are looking forward to the whole chorus singing together in person very soon. In the meantime, we have started outside rehearsals for limited numbers and it is great to be singing together.

 

We have begun our preparations  for the Region 31 competition due to be held in May at Warwick. It will be great to be back competing again. 

 

There was no 2020 Regional Competition but we kept our focus working on new songs and even learning choreography online. We were lucky to squeeze in a final coaching session with the wonderful Lori Lyford  (Master Director 700 of four times International Gold medal winning chorus Scottsdale). Her fresh insight gave us plenty of homework on our competition pieces and we are reviewing each and every gem weekly.


 ....just before Covid! 

We had a busy few days in December singing for the Lord Provost and guests at the City Council Chambers, at Brewhemia and in St Giles Cathedral as part of the annual Bloodwise Concert. We also busked in Waverley Market for Maggie's Cancer Centre our chosen charity this year. 

 

Top Ten Success in New Orleans!

On Saturday 21st September 2019 we broke the UK record and stormed into the TOP 10 in our competition in New Orleans. 

Along with scores of other Barbershop choruses and quartets we filled the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans with harmony for a full week. We represented Sweet Adeline’s International Region 31 Quartet of Nations – which includes all of Great Britain and the Netherlands – and put both Scotland and the UK on the Barbershop map .This is the first time a region 31 chorus has EVER featured in the TOP 10.


Our finals package evoked both emotion and exuberance and landed us a 10th place spot
with the best of barbershop across the globe. The chorus are still reeling in delight and are wearing their medals with pride.

Previously

On Saturday 29th June held a Summer Show in the Central Hall Tollcross. The profit from the show was added to funds raised throughout the year and helped us reach our target to provide some financial assitance to our chorus members travelling to New Orleans.

Going Back to Las Vegas....

2017 was another tremendous year when we competed in the Sweet Adelines International Competition and Convention in Las Vegas representing Region 31. We gained an amazing 11th place. At that point it was the highest placed chorus from Region 31. This also meant we had the honour of being the first chorus from Region 31 to sing on finals day, when we had the privilege of acting as mic warmers for the finals competition. We brought a little piece of Scotland to the stage at the MGM Grand in Vegas. Click here to see our Mic Warmers Set
