Indian Blue Chorus, a Western Australian women’s barbershop chorus, was launched on 19 February 2013 with a 6-week singing course.
Indian Blue is a member of Sweet Adelines International, a singing organisation made up of 25 000 women worldwide, committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education and performance.
Indian Blue Chorus’ primary aim is to sing and perform – but along the way, we know great friendships will be developed. It is often said that women “join for the singing and stay for the friendships!” The chorus will provide education and training in a supportive and exciting environment from local, national and international coaches. The opportunity for personal growth is also a very important part of belonging to this organisation.
What a night at rehearsal ... 78% of the chorus joined us, with 92% 'in the Room' and 8% 'on Zoom'!
Our three-month scarf project came to an end on 1st Sep celebrating IBC’s commitment to our own community. Whilst we were all far apart members knitted their own scarf in IBC chorus colours so that when we could gather again we could wear them and celebrate as one! Thanks to Barb Turner, our Membership Coordinator, for laying the seed!
'Blue Moon Dreaming” honoured the 8th anniversary of the Blue Moon that Kali saw from her window - from which IBC was born. WOW - we looked 'outside' the dot (thanks Jan Carley) and dreamt: "We cannot have the forward momentum that we would wish, but we can move sideways and become richer for the experience."
We, as a community, are grateful we can gather together face to face and by Zoom even though we are still limited in our performances ... but were thrilled to announce we now have two performance opportunities in our City of Joondalup in November & December!
And there was MORE!! 'Moving Parts' Quartet auditioned (and PASSED!); Jos was awarded 'Star of the Month'; Carolyn & Diane were awarded their five year pins ... and we shared the evening with our Associates - Juliana, Grainne and Janet (on Zoom)!
Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays from 7.15pm to 9.45pm, please arrive by 7.00pm. Generally, we welcome visitiors and potential new members at rehearsals.
PLEASE NOTE: Those interested in joining Indian Blue Chorus email Barb at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will let you know when we re-open our doors.
