INDIAN BLUE CHORUS has just returned from the Sweet Adelines Australia Convention held at Wrest Point Casino in Hobart, Tasmania last week. Along with around 950 female a cappella vocalists from all over Australia, Indian Blue loved returning to Hobart where they last competed in 2015, taking 32 of our almost 50 members to join in the excitement, camaraderie and education.

Hobart was a fantastic experience for the chorus. We were armed with a brand-new song in the  competition package, arranged especially for Indian Blue and never previously used in competition! This challenging song required lots of commitment, energy and excitement and to help us prepare this song for the stage, we took on the ‘Stepping it out to Hobart Challenge’ where members were encouraged to get out and walk to build stamina for this impressively fast and dynamic song.

Hobart saw a total of 23 choruses and 23 quartets compete, including the debut of Indian Blue’s quartet, ABSRACT. Whatever the purpose or the competitions’ outcome, it was electrifying in energy, emotional in terms of song delivery, entertaining in performance, and a highlight to Wrest Point Casino visitors and competitors!
