Redland Rhapsody Chorus members were thrilled to receive a record high score in national competition and achieve fifth position. In total twenty three Choruses from all over Australia, some larger than us, some smaller, sang their hearts out to impress a panel of international judges. We received particular praise for our beautiful singing, high energy, expressive performance and elegant costumes.

We compete every two years. In Hobart in 2009 we competed with 31 singers on stage. This year we had 43 singers, thirteen of these being first timers who joined the Chorus within the last eighteen months. Our director believes these talented new members made a big contribution to our success, bringing fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

Our chorus is a Chapter of Sweet Adelines International, the largest organization for women singers in the world with a membership of over 27,000 spanning ten countries. Through our Director and international coaches we strive towards excellence through the musical education and personal development of members and our exciting performances. We are women from all walks of life who love the fun and friendship of singing together.
