This week the Waikato Rivertones were meant to be on stage in Louisville, Kentucky performing in the international Sweet Adelines competition (thanks Covid)! Instead we commiserated/celebrated with dinner together, and sang some of our favourite songs (check out this Facebook post). Not quite the same, but we still had fun! We're grateful that unlike many countries, we can actually sing together rather than via Zoom.
If you didn't make it to our recent Open night or are unsure if a female barbershop choir is for you, you can try out our Intro to Barbershop workshops (next one is on Monday at 6.30pm) or just pop along on any Monday night at 7pm. Here's some reasons why from our newest Bass members Colleen and Fanbo...
Colleen decided to come along to the Rivertones because 'I liked their costumes and they seemed to move around quite a lot during their performance. The first night the sound of the chorus brought tears to my eyes - I had been to Pentatonix last year and was blown away but we're so much more amazing.' She kept coming back and decided to join because 'I was having fun and it was enjoyable even though I didn't know what I was doing. Everyone was so supportive.'
