Local Burns Beach Girl Guides make history by being the first international recognised troop outside of the USA to be awarded this scouting badge. The girls took part in a three week course where they learnt about music, various art forms of singing and preformed songs they had learnt over the weeks. Fantastic to be a part of this journey with them. Click here to see them in.

Indian Blue Chorus is off to a great start for 2017!
On our first night back in January, we had the fabulous Jan Carley come along to inspire us to create our vision for the coming year. The next weekend, our Management & Music teams had a retreat with Jan working on different aspects of ‘Overtone Leadership’, including creating the atmosphere, space and environment for everyone to shine to their fullest potential and developing our ‘acknowledgement rich culture’! The teams also celebrated our 2016 achievements, reviewed our members’ responses to our ‘Health Check’ survey and created dreams for the next 1, 3 & 5 years of Indian Blue’s future!
Second week back, we were on the risers with our wonderful director, Kali Caramia and our Coach for this year’s convention, the amazing Bec Hewitt. What a night of singing, fun and learning (we are all committed to learning and growth!!!)!!!
Two of us became Australian citizens on Australia Day – we sang ‘I Am Australian’ to acknowledge this special event. We had four guests visiting us and look forward to them coming back next week! ‘We’ are fabulous!
Indian Blue Chorus is unlike most choirs! We learn our music and then sing a cappella, (performing without holding music and no accompaniment!). We sing, we dance (a little) and put on a passionate, entertaining performance engaging with our audience!
Indian Blue is currently preparing for the Sweet Adelines Australia Convention to be held here in Perth over the weekend of May 18-20 at the Perth Convention Centre. We expect approximately 800 singers from around Australia to converge on the city to sing and sparkle. At the convention there is a Quartet (Friday) and Chorus competition (Saturday). Indian Blue Chorus anticipates having our first two competing Quartets this year – True Blue and Eclipse! Both competitions are open to the general public!
If you would like to share our passion for singing and performing a cappella, arranged in the barbershop style, contact us and come along and see what it is all about.
Indian Blue Chorus has started the Christmas season with a BANG.
Saturday 3rd December the chorus went on our annual community “Sing Out”.
Using the City of Joondalup community buses (Two this year) the chorus visited Care facilities, Retirement Villages and Shopping Centres in the City of Joondalup.
This our way of giving back to the community and having a “Fun Sing out”.
During the month of December the chorus will also be singing at:
Landsdale Community Carols
Sir David Brand School
Stirling Garden Markets
Ocean Keys Shopping Centre
Lakeside Joondalup Shopping Centre
But don’t be disappointed you still have a chance to see and join in with the chorus this Christmas season on Tuesday 20th December at Sorrento Quay for Carols on the Quay @ 6.30pm.
WOW we can hardly believe we are THREE YEARS OLD!
Where does the time go?
Indian Blue Chorus chartered on October 7th 2014 and to celebrate this wondrous event annually, the Chorus members decided they would like to have the motto of “Indian Blue Chorus Empowers Communities.”
To this end we have sought out local groups that we could donate to.
This year Zonta House is our beneficiary, Zonta House Women’s Refuge provides accommodation for women over the age of 18 years (without their children), who are experiencing family and domestic violence/homelessness and crisis in their lives. The member’s provided personal care items for the house to share with its residents
