A big ‘Thank You!’ to Geelong Connected Communities…
April 22nd, 2019
We are so lucky to have such amazing community support, as well as the wonderful support provided by our Chorus extended family. A grant from Geelong Connected Communities has allowed us to finish our new storage shed with a much needed concrete floor, ably installed by some awesome Geelong Harmony hubbies! We are extremely grateful to all who played a part in bringing this all together.

Sing with Geelong Harmony
September 12th, 2017
Come and sing beautiful four-part a cappella harmonies with Geelong Harmony. Call Cynthia on 0406 666 737 for more details, or come and watch us rehearse on a Monday night from 6.45 to 9.30 pm at the Western Heights Uniting Church Hall, Douglass Street, Herne Hill. Geelong Harmony offers you fun AND seriously good singing. You don’t need to be able to read music because we learn our repertoire from high quality recordings and sheet music. Our Musical Director provides vocal coaching to everyone as we rehearse. Coaches from Canada, the US, Sweden and Australia also instruct us during special workshops on voice production, harmony singing techniques, stage presence and performance skills. We perform at local Citizenship Ceremonies and festivals, like Geelong After Dark. And each year we have the opportunity to perform interstate at the Sweet Adelines Australia Convention.
