The Ladies are a dynamic group of women committed to making music with sincerity and joy. They began their career together preparing for the 2016 Rising Star Competition and won first place in New Zealand. Since becoming the 2016 International Rising Star Champions, The Ladies have taught all around the country at a cappella and barbershop camps, and entertained audiences around the globe. In March 2018, The Ladies became the Great Gulf Coast Region 10 Quartet Champions, setting a record score of 646 for their home region. They went on to compete at the 2018 International Quartet Competition in Saint Louis, Missouri, becoming the 9th place quartet in the world of Sweet Adelines, also winning the Novice Award for their high score as a new competitor. As music educators and long time barbershoppers with 30 years of combined barbershop singing experience, they have enjoyed spreading the love of harmony with musicians of all ages, and look forward to continuing to do so in the years to come!
