Surefire Quartet formed in April of 2013 and quickly decided that five hundred miles of travel was a walk in the park for four quartet-savvy women who really, REALLY wanted to sing together. Surefire has had many wonderful experiences in its 3 years together but the most memorable was becoming the Region 17 quartet champion in May of 2015. As a highlight of its championship year Surefire earned the opportunity to represent Region 17 in Sweet Adelines International Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
