SAA Quartet Workshop in Hobart

Twenty of our members attended the Sweet Adelines Australia Quartet Workshop in Hobart on Saturday 2nd November, with our fabulous Regional Education Faculty member Linda Wareham. We are SO appreciative that our region provided us with this opportunity, and are looking forward to more and more quartetting moving forward. Even those who prefer slightly more than "4" in their "quartet" found lots of things that are applicable in all our singing adventures. A big thanks to Linda - it was a wonderful weekend!
