Adelaide Vocal Union is the newest Barbershop Chorus to hit the scene and proudly represents the Central Region (SA/NT) within Barbershop Harmony Australia. Founded in May 2015, AVU has members from all the Male and Mixed choruses in South Australia, a number of returning BHA members and some who have never sung before!
Under the direction of Kieran O'Dea, Adelaide Vocal Union is founded by a fantastic group of singers with ages ranging from 17 to 70 and made their contest debut in September 2015.
At this event, they were awarded the title of 'Small Chorus Champions' and placed 5th overall. This was achieved after only 5 months of singing together.
In the 2017 National Convention we won silver in the BHA 2017 open chorus with a chorus best score of 78.5% and are also the current Medium Chorus Champs.
Adelaide Vocal Union prides itself on being an exciting, open-age chorus and has a couple of not-so-strict rehearsal policies.
No Learning Notes whilst at rehearsal.
Before leaving a rehearsal you must sing a 'tasteful' tag.*
Every member must make an appearance at the pub after rehearsal.*
