Buffalo Gateway Show Chorus will compete for 7th Trip to International Competition!

The Buffalo Gateway Show Chorus (BGC) is heading to Regional Competition in Cleveland, Ohio on May 18th, 2019 to compete for the privilege of representing Western New York in the Sweet Adelines 2020 International Competition. 

This follows BGC’s highly successful performance at international competition in the fall of 2018 where the group was delighted to earn a 10th place medal in a field which began with over 550 choruses from across the globe!

 “This year’s Regional Competition is especially meaningful for us as it will be our first time competing in a new region,” says Diane Porsch, Master Director.  “We’re also excited to welcome the many new members who have joined us this year and are looking forward to getting out in the community to share our music!” 


Chartered in 1964, BGC is comprised of 90+ women singing 4 part acapella harmony in the barbershop style.  BGC’s long standing commitment to musical excellence in a fun and inclusive environment is a hallmark of the organization.  With membership hailing from all corners of Western New York, as well as Ontario, Canada, BGC takes pride in sharing its music locally through a variety of venues and community events.

Sweet Adelines International is a worldwide women’s singing organization committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through opportunities in education, performance, and competition.  With an international membership of more than 23,000 chorus and quartet members, its members have been singing 4-part barbershop a cappella harmony since 1945.
There has never been a better time to step on the risers with Buffalo Gateway Chorus.  Guests and prospective members are always welcome! Our doors are open, so come experience our passion for singing and the fellowship and friendship that serve as Buffalo Gateway’s foundation.
