In Memorium - Steve Currington

November 11, 2017 - 6:56am -- Antony Currington

On November 4th, Steve Currington passed away after a very brief illness. Steve was a central member of the tenor and then bass section of the chorus for many years, doing a number of administration roles including Chorus Manager and Publicity. He was also the tenor of The Razor's Edge, a great quartet made up of HCC chapter members. Steve was also the father of our director Antony. 

We'll miss you Steve, but know you'll be having a great time singing in the heavenly choir.

Sydney Pan Pacific Convention

October 29, 2017 - 8:47am -- Antony Currington

In September the chorus travelled to Sydney, Australia to compete in the Pan Pacific convention.  The Pan Pacific is a special convention that runs every 3 years, and includes singers from New Zealand, Australia, Japan, the United States, and this time also included a quartet from Singapore. The convention featured the amazing Crossroads quartet.

After preparing 2 songs for some of the year, we were lucky enough to end up coming 2nd in the Barbershop Harmony New Zealand contest held in conjunction with the complete Pan Pacific contest (a sub category). The chorus was very happy with this result. We've been working a lot on improving our singing skills, and it showed in the scores we ended up with.
