Philadelphia Freedom Chorus

Who We Are

With a passion for barbershop harmony, we set out in 2010 to start a new kind of chorus in Philadelphia – one for the “extreme Sweet Adeline”. The idea caught on, this concept moved from idea to action. On January 27, 2011 we were awarded our charter with Sweet Adelines International.
