Well Sunshine Regionals are but a distant memory for us now. We competed in the Open Chorus division and came a creditable third, being beaten by The Blenders and The Blenders Youth Chorus. If only they would move to NSW.

Winter is upon us again in SE Queensland but, it hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm of our members. A couple of weeks ago we had a 100% attendance. The smiles on the faces of our MD’s was certainly broad.

Some time ago Mike Ludwig was spending a weekend at Esk, a lovely little village some 90 minutes away in the Brisbane Valley. He noticed a polo shirt with an interesting logo on a lady and stopped to chat. It turns out she is a member of the Esk Community Choir. One thing led to another and we now have four of their male members coming up to rehearse with us pretty regularly. It just needs a keen eye and a bit of a chat and you don’t know where it will end.

Our Music VP, Grant van Heerden has worked extremely hard with some of our other mates to get learning tracks up for us to work on new material. All his hard work is paying off as we are as good as ‘music down’ on our latest song in only three weeks!

HAH is looking to join the Ballina Headliners on their home turf in October to wow the Ballina locals and they are coming up to see us in August for our annual concert series. Both events promise to be great fun.

As usual, we endeavour to entertain and educate anyone who is interested in our artform by posting clips and other stuff on our Facebook page. If you aren’t a regular viewer, have a look and see what we enjoy. We are positive you will. Plus, we are always updating our web-site haharmony.com.au. Check it out!
