History & Affiliations

Our Proud History

Hobart Harmony started in 1996 with a small passionate group of members, including our current Director Jenni Pyefinch.  In 1997 Jenni took over as musical director.  In 2000, Hobart Harmony Chorus travelled to Perth (WA) to have its standard of singing judged for prospective membership of Sweet Adelines International. Since 2001 we have been a chartered member of the Southern Cross Region #34 of Sweet Adelines International.

Today

In Australia, there are over 1,400 women singers, in 32 Choruses spread around the country.  Members sing in choruses and quartets, performing regularly in public and competing at regional and international levels.

The Southern Cross, Region 34 Sweet Adeline national competitions are held annually.

During our history, Hobart Harmony has won several awards.  Most recently, in the 2015 Regional Convention, the Chorus was prestigiously awarded Most Improved Chorus for 2015, and came 3rd in the small chorus division!

We co-hosted the Regional convention in Hobart in 2008, 2009 and 2015 and will again showcase Wrest Point as a fantastic venue to perform in May 2018, 2019 and 2020!
