Hobart Eisteddfod

It was lovely to get the opportunity to sing and compete on the wonderful Federation Concert Hall stage as part of the City of Hobart Eisteddfod on Monday. The chorus sang so beautifully, taking out the Show Choir and Open Choir sections, as well as winning the Tasmanian Chorale Trophy for best a cappella performance. One of our small ensembles, Collab, also won the Vocal Ensemble section. Well done everyone!

Festival of Voices - sharing the joy!

What an amazing time the chorus had sharing our love of barbershop with Festival of Voices participants in July! Aside from our performance opportunities, Jenni ran two workshops: one, called "Barbershop Basics", which broke down what makes our style of singing so unique, and one simply entitled "Sing with Hobart Harmony", where participants joined in with the chorus to sing barbershop and contemporary a cappella songs. The enthusiasm was amazing, and we all had so much fun! Thanks Festival of Voices, so glad we were able to participate!

Quartet & Small Ensemble Cabaret

A night with a difference! On 29th May, a number of the chorus's small ensembles braved the stage and the lights to perform for family, friends and fellow chorus members! We had nine of our approximately 13 ensembles perform... such a fun evening! Hoping to do some more of these in the near future. Such a great way to expand our singing skills.

Oh What a Night!

What a wonderful night of celebration we had, 1920s style, at Wrest Point on the 15th May! This would normally have been our national convention weekend, and what better way to mark this than to make it our official "birthday" party in full glitter and glam! We had performances, dancing, fashion parades, speeches, photos... and LOTS of fun.Hobart Harmony is having a full year of celebrations for this, our 20th year since chartering with Sweet Adelines International.
