Update from SAI Regarding International, Regionals, and Rising Star

June 18, 2020 - 2:11pm -- Victoria Tisch

This message was sent to all Sweet Adelines Members on June 18, 2020

Dear Sweet Adelines Member,

The news we have to share is not unexpected, but that does not make it less heart-breaking.

The 2020 Sweet Adelines International Convention & Competition in Louisville, Kentucky (USA) is cancelled. Along with the cancellation of our International Convention, the Regional Video Contest and the 2020 Rising Star Quartet Contest are also cancelled.

With COVID-19 still affecting people around the world, the International Board of Directors has made this difficult decision out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our members.
