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.


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 2018 Regional Convention, the Chorus was prestigiously awarded Most Improved Chorus for 2018.

We co-hosted the Regional convention at Wrest Point in Hobart in 2008, 2009, 2015 and 2018. We are looking forward to competing again as soon as the world situation allows it - hopefully in Adelaide in 2022.


Hobart Harmony Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines Australia and Sweet Adelines International, an organisation of approximately 500 choruses and 1200 quartets world.
