Abstract [en]

In 2013 the World Champion title in female barbershop singing was awarded the Swedish chorus Rönninge Show Chorus (RSC). This achievement was historical not only because the winning score was the highest ever in the history of the competition , but foremost because it was made by a non-American chorus in an American tradition. This achievement has triggered our interest in researching this event concerning the assessment protocol of the competition, and how such criteria has guided the pedagogical work of the chorus.The project presented is based on interviews, our own experiences and knowledge from the field as well as written material related to regional and international competitions such as assessment criteria and score sheets. The interview was performed in Swedish, therefor all the quotes in this presentation are our translations. In our presentation we will start by presenting the RSC as well as a brief presentation of the female barbershop community Sweet Adelines and its field of praxis. We will focus on the assessment of musical qualities of the competition environment and in addition to this, our presentation will describe the underlying choral work based on interviews with the two conductors of the RSC. Finally, we will discuss the barbershop learning practice in relation to an overall musical educational context.
