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.
Our 2020 Christmas Sing Out was, like many things this year, a little different! No bus and no visits to aged care facilities! BUT, we did get back to our local Burns Beach Cafe, put on an afternoon tea concert at St Ives Retirement Village - where we have visited for the last 6 years and entertained visitors to the Hillarys Boardwalk. We started and finished with the whole chorus together on the Boardwalk & then 'busked' around the marina in three groups - two smaller choruses and Moving Parts Quartet.
As Sweet Adelines the world over are struggling to be able to come together ... these words by Barb, one of our members, reminds us how fortunate we are here in Perth, Western Australia.
"The moment is not lost on us, however, that we are very very fortunate to be able to sing.
When we stand, in that immeasurable moment before Kali directs us, we all stand a little taller and sing a little more majestically, for all our barbershop sisters in harmony spread far and wide across the world."
We are excited to be planning on opening our doors to guests and new members early in 2021 with a 6-week singing course, commencing on TUESDAY, 23 FEBRUARY 2021, and culminating with a community performance! Fingers crossed and following our WA government COVID guidelines and advice, this event will go ahead as planned!
UPDATES WILL BE ON FACEBOOK & you can REGISTER HERE
