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 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.

You can contact the members of the management team listed here or head over to our bookings page to get in touch.

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 scholarship was awarded at our Christmas show on 9 December 2018 and the recipient was Jenesis Petallana.

We asked Jenesis to tell us a bit about herself:

“I have been involved in all school productions, Rockquest, Foveaux Harmony 2015, NZ Golden Guitars (won gospel section in 2018), musical workshops, my school choir, A & P solo performer, Civic Theatre’s ‘Stars In Your Eyes’ and school variety shows.

I will be attending the University of Canterbury in 2019 to study law and music. I have loved singing ever since I was little and my biggest influencers would be my parents."
