Whangarei Harmony Chorus

Whangarei Harmony Chorus is a well-established singing group with a wide repertoire of barbershop and popular songs. Barbershop may make you picture mustachioed men in Boaters and striped jackets - but no – that is not us. Women’s Barbershop has been around since the 1940’s and in New Zealand since the early 80’s. It has evolved a lot over the years, quite dramatically in the last 10 years. Whangarei Harmony chartered with our parent organisation, Sweet Adelines, nearly 20 years ago and we have had many successes over those years. Singing songs from the 30’s & 40’s is still an important part of our repertoire, especially for competition performances, but we are often found to be singing music that you might normally hear on your radio!
Whangarei Harmony Chorus are looking for a new Musical Director to take charge of our chorus. We are seeking someone with a strong musical background who is keen to learn the barbershop craft and who can help us to grow musically and in numbers.
The position comes with a small honorarium and all related costs are paid for by the Chorus. There are many opportunities to attend national & international training courses run by Sweet Adelines and a Director who is keen to up-skill will find that Sweet Adeline has programs to suit all interests from Directing to Music Arranging and Judging.
NZ women’s barbershop is among the best in the world and we have Chorus’s and quartets competing internationally every year. Our new Director should be enthusiastic and enjoy Performance as well as the challenges of Competition.
We rehearse on Monday evenings at the Brass Band Hall in Dyer Street from 7pm. Please contact Jan Hart on 09 432 1818 or email janted1@xtra.co.nz for further information.
