Competition is a major and fun part of the barbershop world that helps keep us focused on raising the bar of performing excellence. We come together in a spirit of lighthearted contest, to see who's really got top form. We root for each other, cheer each other on, and once the medals have been handed out, we sing and party into the night!


Every year in April or May, Minnesota Valley Valley Chorus makes the trip to a city in our region to compete in our regional contest. Recent competitions have been held in Winnipeg, Manitoba:;Mineapolis,  Fargo, ND; and Rochester, MN.  Dozens of choruses and quartets come together to sing and compete. There are a number of judging categories, and the groups bring complete and entertaining packages. The public is welcome to view the competition and be a part of the fun!


Sometime in the fall the winners of all regional contests -- and a few "wildcards" -- gather together at International competition. The 2015 International competition will be held in Las Vegas You can view the complete contest on a live webcast on the Sweet Adelines International website. This is the ultimate female barbershop competition -- not to be missed!



MAY 2013 

We had the most amazing Region 6 Competition weekend! Minnesota Valley  Chorus is on cloud 9, and we're not coming down for awhile!! 'Most Improved Chorus' 2nd year in a row (52 points this year, 46 last year) was so exciting, but that was just the start! We are the 'Division AA Champions' (mid-size choruses) AND '2nd place' OVERALL! What a thrill!  A heartfelt nod of recognition to our two competing quartets, Sunday Punch and Fourtuosity who lit up the stage on Friday night.  Thanks to our family, friends, coaches, and Region 6 sisters who were so kind with their support and congratulations. We love you!
