Preparations are already underway to learn new songs and choreography for this exciting, popular event. Make a date in your diary now and check back here from time to time to see our progress.


.What Else?

Preparations are also underway for our entry in the Sweet Adelines International Competition and Convention in New Orleans 17th - 21st September 2019 and 95 chorus members are travelling to New Orleans to take part. At the previous  competition we achieved 11th place in the competition and our sights are firmly on a TOP TEN place this year! This takes a lot of rehearsal and preparation and we are kicking this off with a coaching weekend with a Top Ten coach and chorus director from Canada in March. We are excited and determined to do ourselves, our Region 31 and Scotland proud! Check back for more updates later in the year.


Previously

On the 11 May Forth Valley headed to Gateshead for the Sweet Adelines Region 31 annual convention. We were delighted to achieve the Gold Medal position. It was a great weekend. We had a fabulous time performing and also had the opportunity of cheering on our 2 quartets Word of Mouth and Elements. Elements brought home a magnificent 4th place medal.

Just in cased you missed 2017 was a tremendous year when we competed in the Sweet Adelines International Competition and Convention in Las Vegas representing Region 31. Click to see our best ever Semi-Finals Package, which gained us 11th place. The highest placed chorus from Region 31, so far.


This also means 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
