  • Our performance at Barbershop Harmony Festival Hobart 2022
  •  Date Posted: Thu, 17 Nov 2022
    Our performance at Barbershop Harmony Festival Hobart 2022

    We had an awesome time at Barbershop Harmony Australia's 2022 Festival, held in Hobart in early November. Our performance in the BHA National Chorus Contest at the prestigious Federation Hall earned us a 5th Place in the Men's division. It was so gratifying for us to once again be able to sing to an audience in such a fabulous venue after the past couple of years of extended lockdowns and zoom rehearsals. 

    Here are the official videos of our two contest songs - "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" and "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me"

    Our First Isolation "Virtual Chorus" Video!

    While we have been unable to sing in-person since mid-March, we have been busy working on new songs and refining some of our established repertoire at our weekly online Zoom rehearsals. In May we started the process of producing our first "virtual chorus" video and we are so proud of how it turned out!

    For our first isolation project we'd like to share our "at home" version of The Irish Blessing, a song that has become even more relevant to us all in these times. We hope you enjoy it.

    Words: Traditional

  • In-Person Chorus Rehearsals Suspended Until Further Notice

  • Hobart Festival Success & Signature Quartet in Sydney
  •  Date Posted: Wed, 23 Oct 2019

    What a great time we had in Hobart! The 2019 Barbershop Harmony Festival was a resounding success for us in many ways. After taking a year off by choosing not to compete at the 2018 Adelaide Convention, it was a real thrill for the chorus to take to the contest stage at Wrest Point as the first competitor of the day and present our “Fool” package to such a welcoming audience. We are absolutely delighted with our 4th Placing in the BHA National Chorus Contest and extremely appreciative of the glowing feedback we received from the judges and so many of our fellow barbershoppers after our performance.  

    In their national quartet contest debut, our guys The Steamed Hams performed exceptionally well, earning 11th place in a highly competitive field and securing the coveted “mic test” spot for the Finals on Friday night. Well done Steamers! And of course congratulations go to our Assistant Musical Director, Gareth Hearne, for his quartet Helix’s 7th Place in the Quartet Final!

    We had quite a large contingent from the chorus attend Harmony Academy this year, including our MD Vicki Dwyer and key members of our Music Team, taking advantage of the excellent education on offer from the expert faculty. Our quartet Roaming grabbed the opportunity and enrolled in the Quartet stream, getting valuable one-on-one coaching from visiting International Quartet champs Signature among others. Great education and a good time was had by all!

    Immediately following Harmony Academy, Signature quartet came and spent a few days as tourists in our beautiful city. Admittedly with very little notice but with the unique chance to present a performance opportunity featuring the current BHS International Quartet Champion, our team sprung into action and organised an impromptu concert for the Saturday night at Sydney Harmony’s rehearsal venue in North Sydney. About 130 of Sydney’s barbershop community turned out to hear a blistering set performed by Signature on their final night in Australia. Local groups Circular Keys ChorusVox CanvasAlouette quartetBardic PostAccelerando and Sydney Harmony warmed up the audience before the superlative Signature wowed the room with their undeniable talent.

    The afterglow rolled on for hours with traditional barbershop camaraderie, copious refreshments and tags a plenty. It will be a night long remembered. Our heartfelt thanks extends to the guys of Signature for their friendship and unbound generosity in leaving their Sydney fans such a gift. Till next time!

  • Our 20th Anniversary Concert with The Newfangled Four
  •  Date Posted: Wed, 21 Aug 2019

    What better way to help celebrate our 20th year than by having international barbershop quartet superstars The Newfangled Four drop by Sydney to share with us four fabulous days of singing, coaching, socialising and fun!

    The highlight of their stay was having The Newfangled Four headline our anniversary concert Totally Vocal on Saturday 10th August at Hornsby RSL. A near full house crowd greeted the quartet with unbridled enthusiasm and the boys in return performed an unforgettable, wildly entertaining set. It’s no wonder this young Californian foursome is so popular with fans around the world!

    Special guests on the show were our sisters in song, the wonderful Circular Keys Chorus. Led by our common Musical Director, Vicki Dwyer, CKC performed a selection from their wide-ranging repertoire before Sydney Harmony joined them on stage for a set of songs as a combined chorus. The Sydney Harmony/Circular Keys mixed voice chorus has become a crowd-pleasing feature of our shared performances in recent years. And for the show’s Finale, the Newfangled Four joined the combined chorus on stage for a rousing rendition of the Pentatonix a cappella hit “Sing”. Such fun!

    We feel so privileged that The Newfangled Four were able to coach the chorus during their time in Sydney. A full day workshop with them on the Sunday and a visit to our rehearsal on the Monday night allowed us to benefit substantially from the combined and individual talents of these talented musicians. Thanks guys! The chorus is in a really great place now as we head towards the contest stage in Hobart next month.

    We’d like to thank everyone who came to our concert - from BHA and Sweet Adelines choruses both near and far – and to all our friends, family and former Sydney Harmony members who have supported us over the years. Special thanks to our friends Vocal Evolution who instigated the Newfangled Four tour and invited us to take part in this awesome local barbershop initiative.

  •  Date Posted: Thu, 14 Nov 2013

    It's Movember! - and what better time than now to celebrate the intrinsic relationship between barbershoppers and the moustache? In this vintage poster, Kenny Hatton - Lead of the 1978 International champion quartet Bluegrass Student Union - shows how to form "proper vowel shapes" (circa 1980).....AND how to wear a mean mo'! (kiddies - Do not attempt this at home!).

    What a great week of barbershop we've all just enjoyed with the Perth Convention and Harmony College! 

    Congratulations to all the quartets who performed last week and to our fellow competitors in the Chorus contest - particularly the 2013 champions Vocal Evolution - and the other medalists, the Festival Statesmen and Sound Connection. 

    A big "thank you" to the Perth 2013 Convention Committee, Vocal Evolution and Barbershop Harmony Australia for putting on such a memorable, well-organised and enjoyable Convention and Harmony College.

    In terms of total points awarded, Sydney Harmony's score of 70.4% av - earned in the toughest BHA competition ever - is our best national contest result since 2005! 

    Way to go guys!

    Thank you to all our friends, family and fans who came to support us on Sunday at our Perth Preview Show. It was so good to perform to a full house!

    Great performances from all the Eastern Region quartets and our special guests Circular Keys Chorus made for a truly memorable day.

    Perth, here we come!

  • Thanks Matt!

    We just had an amazing weekend of coaching with the very talented Matt Gifford - Bass of the 2013 BHS International Silver Medalist quartet Musical Island Boys and all-round barbershop good guy!

    In collaboration with our MD Vicki Dwyer, Matt worked extremely hard with the chorus over the three sessions to help perfect the interp and our vocal delivery of the contest songs we are taking to Perth for the BHA National Convention in October.

    Thanks so much Matt!
    We are starting to get excited now!
