Jane Mander Retirement Village Sweet Adelines Concert

A recent visit from the local chapter of Sweet Adelines International, “Whangarei Harmony Chorus” was a huge success with around 200 people attending. “Whangarei Harmony Chorus” chose the Jane Mander Village as the venue for their annual pre-competition concert.

As previous winners of the New Zealand Small Chorus Award, their appearances annually at the national competitions is an eagerly anticipated event; and this year’s concert gave everyone a taste of just how well this chorus sings.

Those attending were treated to a number of old favourite melodies sung in the a capella barbershop style which is the signature of Sweet Adelines all over the world. And as a finale and show-stopper – the chorus sang their two competition numbers which raised a wonderful response from the audience!

Following a delightful musical afternoon, everyone was treated to a sumptuous afternoon tea served in our glorious serviced apartment atrium with the late autumn sun beaming in on one and all.

Such was the success of the day, the chorus has been invited back to sing again – anytime they would like to!
