Our desire in Nordic Light Region is to have more choruses. To start a chorus is a process that we can help you with. The first step is to look for information from Sweet Adelines International website where there are clear instructions on how to step by step, start a chorus. We in the RMT are always happy to answer your questions. You can start by contacting our Membership Coordinator, MEC.


The barbershop cone

Barbershop harmonies have a different balance than the cylindrical SATB, in that our top voices sing with less weight and intensity than our lower voices. This is called the barbershop cone. This way of balancing the chords is necessary to produce the rich, ringing barbershop sound.

The image illustrates the balance in volume that is strived for in barbershop singing.
