Women’s cho­rus hits top notes in Ho­bart

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

BUZZING from its re­cent com­pe­ti­tion, the In­dian Blue Cho­rus is hold­ing an open house to show­case all things a cap­pella.

The Burns Beach-based women’s bar­ber­shop cho­rus has just re­turned from the Sweet Ade­lines Aus­tralia Con­ven­tion in Ho­bart, which hosted about 950 fe­male a cap­pella vo­cal­ists from all over the coun­try.

“We took 32 of our al­most 50 mem­bers to join in the ex­cite­ment, ca­ma­raderie and education and it was a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for us,” mem­ber Lou Patchitt said.

“We were armed with a brand new song, ar­ranged es­pe­cially for In­dian Blue and never pre­vi­ously used in com­pe­ti­tion.

“This chal­leng­ing song re­quired lots of com­mit­ment, en­ergy and ex­cite­ment and to help us pre­pare this song for the stage, we took on the ‘Step­ping It Out To Ho­bart Chal­lenge’ where mem­bers were en­cour­aged to get out and walk to build stamina for this im­pres­sively fast and dy­namic song.”

The com­pe­ti­tion fea­tured 23 cho­ruses and 23 quar­tets tak­ing part.

Now the cho­rus is keen to share its pas­sion and re­cruit new mem­bers.

The open house will be held from 7pm on June 5 at Bram­ston Park Community Cen­tre.
