Every year in a different city, Sweet Adelines Choruses from all over Australia hold a convention where they compete, attend workshops conducted by international coaches, share their enthusiasm and passion for a cappella singing ….and do a little partying.

This year’s Convention is in Perth from 17th to 19th May. We have big ambitions to achieve a big lift in our point score and become one of the very few “A” ranked Choruses in Australia. 

We launched our intensive preparation with a Chorus Retreat at Currumindi Active Recreation Centre on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. From Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon Feb 8-10 we sang and learned and laughed with SAI Master Director, Virginia Humphrey Taylor (a.k.a Virg).

 

 
 
 

Chorus Retreats - away from home - communal living and dining - rehearsing all day reaffirm the strong Redland Rhapsody team spirit……a spirit that cut loose on the Saturday night. Each vocal section took turns to see who could get the biggest laugh with their performance.

 

 
 

It was a wonderful weekend, everyone had fun and learned lots. There’s more coaching to come between now and May and we are all fired up to do our best.
