Hills Happenings

We are very pleased with the outcome of our “A Cappella for Fellas”  course.  It has given us five new members keen to begin their Barbershop careers and we are very happy to have them aboard.
We have had input into our education from Vicki Dwyer and Rob Sequeira

Peter Donald does a great job as our MD and we are delighted with our, improvement as singers over the past year.  Recently, thanks to a BHA initiative, we have had rehearsal visits from Vicki Dwyer, MD of Sydney Harmony and Rob Sequeira from Vox Canvas. It was great to be coached by such experienced barbershop practitioners who saw our performances from a fresh point of view.   We thank them for their perceptions and expertise so freely given.  They showed us things we can work on to improve our singing and perhaps more importantly, reinforced what we are doing well, increasing our confidence and enjoyment.

We have three quartets who have qualified for the National competition but are still unsure if we can have enough members in Adelaide to perform as a chorus.  A work in progress.

Our local council has finished one of its “works in progress”.  It has recently refurbished a 350 seat performance space in the local community centre called the Pioneer Theatre and were looking for local groups to use it. Hills Harmony has applied to use it for a  spectacular a cappella concert later in the year. We just need the decision to go our way and we will have a new purpose built space  for our performances.
