Sweet Scarlet is made up of six sassy women, brought together by their shared passion for music and performing.  With a background in choral music and a love for pop classics and contemporary favourites, Sweet Scarlet defines the genre of choral fusion. Not only are they great friends, but they also bring a captivating and compelling dimension to the a cappella music scene with their recordings and live performances.

In past years, Sweet Scarlet has toured the west coast, and accumulated numerous accolades, including winning first place in the Chamber Choir category at the International Choral Kathaumixw. They also received the “People’s Choice” award at the 2016 Yule Duel in Gastown, as well as the prestigious Elmer Iseler award at the 2016 International Choral Kathaumixw.
