WOW. What a few months it has been. We are so proud to be your 2018 BHA Chorus Champions.

Firstly, we would like to thank Cam DuRieu and the BHA National Council for putting on such an amazing convention in Adelaide; I think we can all agree that it was one of the best yet. Also a special thanks to all the other volunteers involved in helping the convention run so smoothly. We hope that everyone who attended the convention came away just as inspired as we have. Some amazing music throughout the week just goes to show how strong barbershop is in this country, which is very very exciting.

We would also like to congratulate all the other groups from around the country on some amazing performances throughout convention week, with particular congratulations to Vocal Evolution and Blenders, and to Blindside as well.

The next few months for Festies is bound to be busy as we ramp up for Christmas season to hopefully bring some Christmas cheer to the audiences of Adelaide. We are also preparing for our Fringe Show for the 2019 Adelaide Fringe and also preparing for an appearance in another Adelaide Festival production. One thing’s for sure; we will definitely be doing lots of singing.


We are very much looking forward to the year ahead, representing BHA and barbershop as a whole as the 2018 Chorus champions.

Kind Regards,

Lachlan McGuinness
