High Spirits Harmony (HSH) was formed in February 2014, and officially incorporated on 9 May that year.
HSH was the brainchild of Alice and Angela, who were interested in forming a new women’s a cappella singing group in Adelaide. With other singing friends on board, they found a Music Director, commenced rehearsals, and HSH quickly established itself as a successful, fun?loving singing group which continues to this day.
HSH’s inaugural Music Director was Matthew Lykos, who worked with the group from February 2014 through to July 2017. Matt came with a Bachelor of Music (Voice) from the Elder Conservatorium of Music, and vast musical experience, including singing with the multi-award winning quartet, the Fishbowl Boys, and being a member and leader of the dynamic all-male a cappella vocal group, the Festival Statesmen Chorus.
Matthew’s involvement with HSH in its formative years was pivotal to its initial success and growth as a singing group. Matthew has left HSH to explore other musical endeavours, but will always have a strong attachment to this special group of singers.
