Not just one, but two top Sweet Adelines choruses, together for a summer afternoon concert of magical a cappella music.
Pride of Portland Chorus is one of the top women’s barbershop choruses in the world, consistently ranking in the top ten at International contests, most recently placing 6th at the 2016 contest in Las Vegas this October. They are the first Sweet Adelines chorus ever invited to audition for America’s Got Talent! And they are headed our way for a New Zealand tour, where they will sweep you off your feet with their rhythms, movement and exhilarating performance style.
In Auckland, it will be double the fun, double the singing, double the dancing and double the acting with our very own Greater Auckland Chorus.
Greater Auckland Chorus are themselves six times national champions, having represented New Zealand at numerous Sweet Adelines International contests, the latest in Las Vegas in 2015. Known for their theatrical exploits and mini-dramas, they make a mean barbershop sound as they perform a huge range of popular songs.
Both choruses will come together in stagey, glamorous costumes, singing choreographed, unaccompanied four-part harmony to set your ears a-ringing.
The current National Champion quartet, MOLTO!, will also feature on the show singing the hits that will hopefully see them retain their championship blue ribbon medals in 2017!
What a great way for you to spend a few hours at 5 pm on a Summertime Sunday in the late afternoon! Get your tickets now.
