New Orleans’ Success


On Saturday, September 7th New Zealand’s most successful Sweet Adelines a’cappella chorus represented New Zealand in New Orleans, USA at the 2019 Sweet Adelines International Barbershop Harmony Competition. They were placed seventh out of the thirty three other choruses competing – an outstanding result, putting New Zealand talent in the top ten on the world stage.

Almost one hundred and thirty Canterbury women took to the stage to compete against the large number of other entrants from as far afield as Sweden, England, numerous regions in the States, as well as one from Australia.

When the Chorus returns from their overseas travels, rehearsals will commence for a Christmas Show to be held at the end of November. Also in the pipeline may be the opportunity to take part in the World Choirs Games being held in Belgium in 2020.
