Sweet Adelines International is proud to announce Sweet Adelines’ collaboration with the Girl Scouts of the USA!

To preserve and teach the art of barbershop harmony, there is now a Young Women in Harmony patch for Girl Scouts to earn! Interested girls of all ages can get this new patch for their sash by exploring four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop basics, and even a Sweet Adelines rehearsal. Let’s keep the vocal art of barbershop harmony alive and well for many generations to come.

You can also use barbershop to fulfill requirements of the Boy Scouts Music Merit badge.

From the Boy Scouts of America.  The history of music is rich and exciting. Through the ages, new music has been created by people who learned from tradition, then explored and innovated. All the great music has not yet been written. Today, the possibilities for creating new music are limitless.  Requirements include the following:  sing or play a simple song, attend a live music performance, study and interview persons about music, teach singing, and write a musical score.

And look who’s listed among the participating organizations — US!
