We would be remiss if we didn't start by thanking Brian Bleakley and his team at Hunter Harmony together with the BHA team for their hard work in organising a highly enjoyable and seamlessly run convention. We would also like to congratulate everyone who performed in any category for their contribution.
A gold medal with Blindside and silver with Upgrade in the open quartets category.
First place for The Blenders Youth Chorus may not seem like an achievement in a field of only one but there was plenty of achievement in just being there!
A third place bronze for The Blenders was a first medal for quite a number of our singers, including ten for whom this was their first convention.
The Chorus Breakfast, held before the chorus competition and a tradition that dates back to 1999, was the opportunity to award Life Membership to our popular President, Doug Goetze. The 107 attendees of the breakfast warmly supported this award.
"Business as usual" means gigs are rolling in fast. The Thursday after convention we had a gig at Jupiter’s Hotel and Convention Centre to open a Seniors Forum hosted by Steven Ciobo MP. The enthusiastic audience of around 800 looked like recruitment material to our President who is always on the prowl for opportunities.
