Aberdeen Chorus of Sweet Adelines

A Cappella Singing in Aberdeen, Scotland

Aberdeen Chorus of Sweet Adelines

The Aberdeen Chorus of Sweet Adelines International is a choir of around 75 singers from Aberdeen, Scotland who sing in four part harmony a cappella style.

The chorus is one of the top women’s barbershop choruses in the UK having won the UK Championships no fewer than six times.

A cappella singing is always unaccompanied and although the 4-part style sung by the chorus is often called “Barbershop Style”, the chorus sings many different styles of songs. The choir performs in and around the Aberdeen area but also performs around the country including a regular slot at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.


The chorus is continuing to rehearse each Monday from 7.30pm – 10.00pm  at Curl Aberdeen, Eday Walk, Aberdeen, AB15 6LN.

We are also continuing to stream our rehearsals via Zoom.

Top news: our Edinburgh Fringe Show, Thistle Be A Reigny Day, is coming to Aberdeen!

Aberdeen Chorus Back at Contest in 2022!

In May 2022 the chorus competed in the annual Sweet Adelines Regional Contest for the UK and Netherlands Region, held at the University of Warwick, Coventry where they competed in the “Open Division”. This means they performed an entertainment package for evaluation and are not included in the final contest placings.

You can watch their performance below.

Contest Success for Aberdeen Chorus!

In May 2019 the chorus competed in the annual Sweet Adelines Regional Contest for the UK and Netherlands Region, held in St David’s Hall, Cardiff,  where they placed second with their highest ever score of 638.

This score qualified the chorus to compete in the Sweet Adelines International Contest in Louisville, Kentucky in October 2020. Unfortunately this contest has been cancelled because of COVID-19 so the chorus will not be travelling to USA this year.

You can watch the silver medal winning performance below.
