The STAR Chorus comprises non competing Sweet Adelines from all around New Zealand. Members practise before each convention from recordings and sheet music and after 3 or 4 hours of intense coaching during convention, perform on stage.
This year 8 members of Nelson Bays Harmony Chorus sang two songs, Jada and the New Zealand Song. We were very well received but the real thrill came through the coaching by Master Director Barbara Smith of the Waikato Rivertones.
Spot Nelson Bays singers – Jenny Edwards, Eileen Smith, Val Fitzsimons, Julie Scoggins, Janet Rowland, Di Beach, Maggie Trodahl and Hilary Clifton.
