About Vocal Standard

Vocal Standard is committed to setting a new level of excellence in the barbershop craft and acapella music genre in the Kansas City metropolitan area.  We pride ourselves on our magnificent work-ethic, unmatched dedication, and relentless self-motivation. We provide a platform that challenges singers with rich and stimulating arrangements as well as increased education and growth of the individual singer!  Sweet Adelines International is evolving on a world-wide stage and we want to be leaders in the amazing progression, growth, and preservation of the craft we all love so deeply. 

Vocal Standard had its first meeting, with 15 members and director Rob Mance, on December 6 th , 2015 and were fortunate to earn our Sweet Adeline International Charter in December, 2016 with 36 members.  Since our inception we have been driven by excellence which prevailed at our very first Region 5 competition, in April 2017, where we placed 2nd place overall.  

We are proud to say that we have a diverse group of expertise among our members. Our experienced members have helped to strengthen our growth at a rapid pace and our newer members have helped to renew the joy and vibrancy that our “hobby” provides! We have music educators, several award-winning quartet members, and many novice musicians who just love to sing!  

We are so excited to be on this journey together!  Come and check us out anytime!
