South Waikato News - - Motoring - LUKE KIRKEBY

South Waikato fans of Pen­ta­tonix or Pitch Per­fect wait­ing for their chance to show­case their own a capella skills should get ex­cited.

The Hamil­ton based Waikato River­tones Cho­rus is look­ing for new mem­bers.

As the cur­rent New Zealand cham­pion cho­rus, mem­bers are el­i­gi­ble to com­pete in the In­ter­na­tional Sweet Ade­lines Com­pe­ti­tion in Las Ve­gas in 2017.

And po­ten­tial new mem­bers to come along to an open night in Hamil­ton on Mon­day, Au­gust 8 at 7pm in Mar­ian School Hall, Clyde Street.

Pub­lic­ity and pro­mo­tions co­or­di­na­tor Adri­enne Wind­sor said it was the per­fect time for mu­si­cal women of all ages and voice ranges to join.

‘‘We have mem­bers that come from Otoro­hanga but as yet we haven’t had any­one in the South Waikato join us but any­one in the Waikato that is in­ter­ested in singing and doesn’t mind trav­el­ling is wel­come to come along,’’ she said.

‘‘You don’t have to have cho­rus ex­pe­ri­ence, you just have to be will­ing to give it a go,’’ she said.

Wind­sor said co-di­rec­tors Lynn Jamieson and Kate Sin­clair pro­vide vo­cal in­struc­tion ev­ery Mon­day night and the cho­rus is a friendly, sup­port­ive group of women.

‘‘They love to sing a wide va­ri­ety of songs.’’
