Learn to sing program, SingGC has been in full swing at The Blenders for the past two weeks. SingGC is a program which introduces men to singing. SingGC runs over four weeks and provides men and youth with an introduction to singing. Participants learn two songs in 4 part harmony over the period of the program. Twenty five participants registered to be part of the program.

Running concurrently with the male program is SingGC for females with our sister chorus, Coastal Charisma. Both choruses are learning one song which they will perform together at the completion of the program.

It has been a wonderful experience introducing both these groups to the joys of four part harmony singing.

The Blenders next major venture is Voices in Paradise to be held on Saturday 14th July. Voices in Paradise offers an annual youth workshop with professional education and training by internationally renowned a cappella groups and local coaches. Under the direction of The Blenders MD, Jonathon Albertini, participants will experience the thrill of performing live in front of a large audiences after a day of intensive coaching by special guest educators, Blindside and a cappella champions, Drums of War.

This year is the 30th Anniversary of The Blenders and plans are underway for a major function later this year. During our thirty years we have experienced ups and downs like most choruses but we continue to go from strength to strength through programs like SingGC, Voices in Paradise, community engagement and the camaraderie of past and present members.
