By: MyBayCity Staff
The Tri-City Chorus, Sweet Adelines International is a dedicated group of talented women who absolutely love to sing, unaccompanied, choral music, "barbershop style"! Barbershop music is one of the three "American music styles", along with gospel and jazz.
Tri-City Chorus belongs to Region 2 of the worldwide Sweet Adelines International. This region includes many parts of Michigan and Ontario, Canada. The women of the Tri-City Chorus come from communities in Bay, Midland, Saginaw, Tuscola and Huron counties! They have been in existence since the 1960's and have earned several 1st place medal awards in their division.
