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 singing together in person very soon. 

Date announced for our Usher Hall show! 

On Saturday  24th September 2022 Forth Valley Chorus will again take to the stage in the magnificent Usher Hall. 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.


Due to the current disruption for Covid19 our Regional Competition has been cancelled. But we are not letting that stop us! We have moved our rehearsal on line and are continuing to learn new songs. 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 has given us plenty of homework on our competition pieces and we are reviewing each and every gem weekly.


Previously .... 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. Now the festve season is over we are concentrating our efforts into polishing our 2 contest songs for the Sweet Adeline Regional Competition which is being held in Cardiff this year 15-17th May. Working along side that we are learning new songs to dazzle our audience with in our concert in the Usher Hall on 10th October. It's all go!


Top Ten Success in New Orleans!

On Saturday 21st September 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.

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.

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

 Forth Valley-372 up

In a first for Edinburgh Trams, members of Forth Valley Chorus surprised and delighted passengers on a tram with a flas mob sing. The Scotsman newspaper picked up on this unique event - check out their article here. 


On a more modest note we can also be heard throughout the year singing for charity events, private groups, churches, community events, and fundraisers. See our Performance page page for details!
