Region 9 Quartets Competing at International

Prior to "Qualifying" or Winning at the Regional Level
Prior to having "Wild Card" quartets and rules for competing at International, many Regional Quartets competed at the International level without winning at the regional level. This page is dedicated to the Region 9 Quartets that competed at International without having won at the regional level. Years are un-clear. If anyone has more information, please contact Sue Giesler at with details so this page can be updated. Thank you!

Names in Bold Royal Purple type are Top Hat Club members. 
An asterisk (*) indicates Region 9 Members in each quartet. Click on individual pictures to navigate to quartet websites.

All International-bound competing quartets on this page, (including Wild Card Quartets and quartets that won in another region with a Region 9 quartet member), received a portion of the proceeds from our 2011 Annual Thursday Night Live! Show. A portion of the show proceeds are also distributed to the Young Women In Harmony Youth Festivals every year. 

Note: Sweet Adelines International's regional competitions are held each year in March-May time frame, and international competition is held each year in late September, October or early November. In 1993, the Sweet Adelines International and Coronet Club (organization of champion quartets) boards of directors agreed that the international quartet and chorus champions are more aptly designated by the calendar year during which they primarily hold their titles rather than the year in which they win their titles. Thus, there are no "1993 International Champions." The quartet (Showtime) and chorus that won in 1993 were designated "1994 International Champions," and all subsequent international champions have titles following the new system.
