Chorus members, family and friends had a ball last night at our social/fundraiser event at AMF Bowling. Huge thanks to our organiser Sandra and her helpers, and a special thanks to Hans Went from Canadian Bay Travel for sponsoring our top raffle prize for the night!

Mornington Winter Jazz Festival

June 25, 2016 - 9:47pm -- Lucy Moray

Southern Sounds Chorus were invited to sing on Mornington Main St during the Mornington Winter Jazz Festival, but unfortunately it was such a cold and rainy day that the outdoor performances were cancelled.  However, we were all there, dressed up and raring to sing, so we got permission to sing in one of the shopping centres instead where we entertained the shoppers!

Hobart Convention 2015

June 9, 2015 - 8:03pm -- Lucy Moray

We had an absolute ball at convention in Hobart and were thrilled to receive our highest ever score of 513 points, the first time we score over 500 points!  We placed 4th in the small chorus category and 13th overall, a fantastic achievement.  We'd like to thank our director Catherine for leading us to this result and for her unwavering commitment to the chorus.  Thanks also to everyone that helped us along the way, particularly our coaches Virginia Humphrey-Taylor, Joey Minshall and Glenda Lloyd. 

9 members of our chorus were also 'first timers' at competition this year, so they finally got to experience all the fun of convention, not just performing, but the mass sings, harmony bazaar, showcase of champions, not to mention enjoying the chorus and quartet competitions.

We had a fantastic weekend of coaching with Virginia, she renewed our passion, energy and sound, and amazed us with her endless energy, knowledge and generosity.  

We all came away from the weekend brimming with confidence and joy for singing, and looking forward to competing in Hobart!

Posture, posture, posture!

A P&O cruise ship arrived in Mornington today, and Southern Sounds Chorus was there to entertain the passengers as they explored Mornington Main Street.  We delighted the tourists with renditions of some Aussie favourites such as I Still Call Australia Home, Shelter, Never Never, True Blue, I Am Australian, plus some of our other favourites!

Coaching weekend with Virginia Humphrey-Taylor

July 21, 2014 - 9:08pm -- Lucy Moray

We had a fabulous weekend of coaching with Master Director, Virginia Humphrey-Taylor, from Christchurch City Chorus.  She inspired us and motivated us to sing with our best voices, and helped us with some new choreo moves for our upcoming concert.  We all came away from the weekend exhausted, but with heads full of new ideas and techniques to improve our singing!
