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 is currently rehearsing in adherence with rules and recommendations outlined under the 'Red' framework. We are using this time to internally innovate and develop. In recent weeks each of our members have selected a new voice part and are performing a piece in entirely new sections!
Foveaux Harmony Chorus competed in the 2021 Sweet Adelines Region 35, Harmony Aoteroa Convention; held in Christchurch. We performed a Performance Package in the Open Division and received 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 presented our annual showcase in August 2021. At this time the Foveaux Harmony chorus Performance Scholarship was awarded. Congratulations to the recipient: Holly Muirhead.
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.

FOVEAUX HARMONY/ILT SCHOLARSHIP
The Foveaux Harmony Chorus / Invercargill Licencing Trust scholarship is awarded to female singers aged between 13 and 25 and is intended to help further their singing career.
The 2021 scholarship was awarded at our August Showcase. Congratulations to the recipient: Holly Muirhead.
Holly describes herself as "A 17-year-old singer/songwriter, currently in Year 13 at James Hargest College. Music has been a huge part of my life ever since I was 9 years old. Singing and writing songs has been an outlet for me, allowing me to express how I’m feeling without spoken words. I love that music is a universal language that connects everyone around the world, no matter who they are or where they're from."
Congratulations to Holly. We look forward to viewing her future successes.
