2016 will provide plenty of action for BHA Members, with Youth BBDO’s, Regional Contests, numerous concerts and, of course, our BHA National Convention “Hunter Harmony" coming up in Newcastle in late September.
Next up: Regional Contests…

Sunshine Region – Sunday, 24 April
Central region – Sunday, 01 May
Victorian Region – Sunday, 01 May
Eastern Region – Saturday, 07 May &
Western Region – Saturday, 14 May

Hunter Harmony…
Preparations are well underway for our 2016 Convention, Hunter Harmony.  Newcastle City Hall will be the venue for most of our events and specially our Youth contests and BHA Quartet contests.  The newly refurbished Wests City Club will be the location for our Welcome Dinner, Chorus Contest and our Saturday evening Showcase of Champions.  The Convention Website is now up and running, you can access this via the usual BHA site.
Points to note:
  • Early Bird registrations close on 31st May and the savings are substantial, so don’t leave it too late, get in early and save!
  • Accommodation close to the venues will be in short supply, at the moment there is plenty available at all price points, so once again, don’t leave it too late.
  • Quartet results and qualification levels will be finalised by mid-May, so you’ll still have time to access early bird registrations.
  • Forefront is our visiting quartet, check out the website for more information on these four brilliant singers and listen to selected tracks.
  • New this year, a series of Master Classes replacing Harmony College.  A more compact format for the Sunday afternoon, evening and Monday morning.
  • Pricing options apply this year, buy exactly the package you need for partners and friends, we’ve made it easier and less expensive, don’t miss out! Now is the time to be making your plans for Newcastle, whether a Chorus or Quartet…
