Hills Harmony Roundup

We have taken great encouragement from winning the Andy Aberle Trophy at the National convention and now refer to ourselves as “The good old guys” of Barbershop.

The Showcase Concert we presented on Nov 4 showed us at our best, was thoroughly entertaining and raised $2000 for the Lifeline organisation. 

Between the concert and Christmas we have a dozen engagements which is a big increase on past years and is really keeping us involved and singing.

We have performed at the “Broadway 3 Way” choral festival, retirement village and Probus club Christmas lunches,  Bunnings Festive Family night, the Christmas memorial service for Castlebrook Cemetery and filled the air with festive spirit through offering seasons greetings to customers in three local shopping centres. 

We also spent a day visiting with the burgeoning Wollongong Mens Barbershop Chorus. We welcomed them into the barbershop fraternity, singing some tags and learning a song or two, having some fun and experiencing the joy of harmony singing. Sounds like the beginnings of an outreach program as we are planning another “Barbershop on the grass” day out early next year.

Surely the best way to promote peace on earth and good will among men is to sing in with them.

Seasons Greetings to all our barbershop colleagues and best wishes for 2019.
