THE STORY OF FOVEAUX HARMONY CHORUS
Sisters in Harmony
Foveaux Harmony Chorus is part of a worldwide organisation called Sweet Adelines. The chorus started over 20 years ago and entertains audiences in Invercargill and elsewhere. This is a chorus for women who love to sing four-part harmony without accompaniment. The repertoire varies from traditional barbershop to more modern music and we love to entertain with our music and our showmanship.
Foveaux Harmony performs at Regional Sweet Adelines competitions across New Zealand and in a variety of local shows and events.
Foveaux Harmony Chorus have re-commenced in recent weeks. While remaining cognizant of social distancing policies post-lockdown, we are thrilled to be able to restart rehearsals and social events at level one!
The chorus presented their annual showcase in December 2019 where we awarded the ILT - Foveaux Harmony Chorus Scholarship to the talented Ava Thornley.
In November Foveaux Harmony attended a workshop in Dunedin with Dunedin Harmony Chorus. Coaches Jacosa Bruce and Kristina Roper taught both choruses a great deal and we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.
Foveaux Harmony Chorus competed in the Sweet Adelines Region 35, Regional contest; held in Dunedin in May 2019. We were thrilled to place second in Division A, and fourth overall, earning us a medal! We also had some great feedback from the judges, complimenting us on our strengths and giving us some pointers on what to work on to raise our standard even further.
The chorus is available for bookings and are happy to perform for any occasion. We may appear as a full size chorus of approximately 30 singers or as small groups.
