We're thrilled to have achieved third place in the Sweet Adelines Harmony Classic competition for small choruses in St Louis. We performed the plan, our audience laughed in all the right places, and our judges stopped writing and looked up to watch us. Feedback from our audience was all positive. We're so proud of our Director, Vicki, our chorus, and everyone who helped us get there.
Circular Keys Chorus is competing at Sweet Adelines Australia's regional convention in Wollongong on Saturday, 21st May 2016. We're on stage at 3:59 pm in the WIN Entertainment Centre. To be in the audience, or watch the live webcast, click here.

Circular Keys Chorus raised nearly $2,000 from our giant garage sale in July 2015. The first dealer turned up at 6 am. There was a steady flow of customers all day, some of whom were entertained with live music as we practised our chorus repertoire. At 3 pm we sorted out what was left for the Council cleanup and our favorite op-shops.
CKC members had a fabulous time in Hobart at the 2015 Sweet Adelines Regional Convention. We brought home a 5th place medal for our collection and scored 592 points, not far behind the 3rd and 4th place winners. We're also very proud we are of Alouette quartet who placed 2nd in the quartet competition. On Saturday night we dressed up for a great Afterglow party superbly organised by our very own Lyn and Cheryl.
A beautiful sunny Sunday was spent on the bowling greens at the Hill Club in Baulkam Hills. Lots of the friends and family of the Circular Keys Chorus joined in the fun. By the time we had finished, we appreciated how hard bowling is and the skill required. In comparison singing and choreography seem easy!
Ted, one of the veterans of the club coordinated some extra fun games. Once the word got around that prizes were involved the competitive spirit came out. Bowls were flying in all direction in an attempt to get close to the Jack.
Thank you to the fundraising team lead by Liz van Miltenburg for organising this great event.
