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 current direction of Cam Di Rieu and Ben Neldner Adelaide Vocal Union was 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 Sydney 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 as in 2018 and 2019 we won Best small chorus at the BHA conventions in Adelaide (AVU Convened this convention) and Hobart.
Adelaide Vocal Union prides itself on being an exciting, open-age chorus and has a couple of not-so-strict rehearsal policies.
Prefer not to be learning notes whilst at rehearsal.
Before leaving a rehearsal you may sing a 'tasteful' tag.
Every member is encouraged to make an appearance at the pub after rehearsal
