Fleurieu Harmony have formed a sub committee to form strategies for recruitment looking not only at revisiting traditional avenues but investigating the various electronic media and finding the best way to reach prospective members, the target is so small when you consider the possible  recruitment area, number of males, percentage of those who like singing, availability for daytime rehearsals and that like a cappella four part harmony singing.  We have found that most of our present members have come from singouts in public places like Shopping Centres, Markets etc. 

We have had fewer bookings to entertain so far this year, which is our main forte, so we have been able to concentrate on new songs for our repertoire and recruitment. Our next engagement is to preform at the Willunga Almond Festival in July and take part in the street parade the next day.

The chorus will unfortunately not be going to Hobart due to key members on holidays and affordability as most of our members, due to their age, rely  solely on the government pension and have no super or the little they had was long gone but we will be with you in spirit.

Wishing all a great and enjoyable convention in Hobart
