Spirit of the Gulf is an award-winning women's a cappella chorus, dedicated to musical excellence, education and the promotion of harmony singing throughout Florida. We are part of Sweet Adelines International , a worldwide organization of women singers, established in 1945, committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education and performances. This independent, nonprofit music education association is one of the world's largest singing organizations for women, has a current membership of over 25,000 and holds a yearly international singing competition.
Spirit of the Gulf Chorus of Sweet Adelines International was chartered in January 2001 and immediately began paving an incredible road of success.
Directed by Mike Slamka, Spirit of the Gulf Chorus continues to excel in a capella barbershop harmony.
Spirit of the Gulf Chorus holds many honors. Beginning in 2002, these honors include: 10 Florida State SAI Chorus Champion medals, five top-ten medals at Sweet Adelines International competition, most recently earning a 6th place SAI International medal in Denver 2012. We are proud to have been chosen by the audience as the “Most Entertaining Chorus” again in 2012 for the third time.
Our next International competition will be in Baltimore this coming November.
Join us at any rehearsal to experience both the work and joy that go into our craft.
