Choir hopes to hit high note at meet

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

A YEAR of re­hears­ing has the In­dian Blue Cho­rus in good stead for its third con­ven­tion since form­ing less than four years ago.

The Burns Beach-based women’s bar­ber­shop cho­rus will com­pete un­der the di­rec­tion of Kali Caramia in Laugh, Sing, Shine! at the Perth Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.

The Sweet Ade­lines Aus­tralia event will see 700 women from Aus­tralia at the four-day con­ven­tion that in­cludes two days of quar­tet and cho­rus com­pe­ti­tion from May 19-20.

In­dian Blue Cho­rus will have 48 mem­bers on stage, 12 of whom never com­peted be­fore and two only au­di­tioned this year.

“The two days of fierce com­pe­ti­tion will see us singing four-part a cap­pella har­monies in the bar­ber­shop style, scored by in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­cred­ited judges from the US,” mem­ber Lyn Hull said.

For the first time, the cho­rus will en­ter a quar­tet – True Blue – to com­pete on the Fri­day against 21 oth­ers, while the cho­rus will com­pete on Satur­day against 15 oth­ers.

Both groups will sing two songs – an “up tune” and a bal­lad – to put them on stage for six min­utes each.

The win­ning quar­tet will rep­re­sent Aus­tralia at the Sweet Ade­lines In­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion in Las Ve­gas this Oc­to­ber and the win­ning cho­rus will do the same at next year’s Las Ve­gas event.


The In­dian Blue Cho­rus is ready for the Laugh, Sing, Shine! con­ven­tion.
