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 Aberdeen Chorus celebrated its 40th Birthday in November 2020. Original plans for a big party were put on hold and various Zoom events were held instead including a big Zoom party with special friends and guests from around the world. Thank you to all who attended and for all your good wishes

The new year continues with our online rehearsals for the foreseeable future.

As the easing of the lockdown continues it is hoped that we may soon be able to start to hold some small-scale rehearsals outdoors as a first step back to the risers.

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.
