|In early September 2018 we flew to Melbourne to compete in Vocal Australia's #AUSACA Australian A Cappella Championships. We were so humbled, thrilled and shocked to be awarded second place in the ‘Open Ensemble’ division of the competition, and the Best Newcomer award!! The result is beyond our wildest dreams!
Congratulations to all the diverse groups who crossed the stage from around Australia and New Zealand. The a cappella bar continues to be raised year after year and the culture which we share is something beyond special.
A massive thanks to Amelia Alder and the whole Vocal Australia team and all of the volunteers who have worked tirelessly for this event. Also, to the incredible judges and coaches for your wisdom and inspiration in the workshops and encouragement to always be better. None of this could happen without you.

High Spirits Harmony is celebrating after taking out an SA/NT singing trophy for the second time.
HSH won the Open Chorus Memorial Shield in the Barbershop Harmony Australia Central Region competition in only its second venture into the competition.
The perpetual shield was introduced in 2015 for the runner-up in the Open (men’s and women’s) section of the competition. High Spirits Harmony won the trophy that year, and then took a year out to compete in other events before returning to the BHA competition this year.
As well as winning the trophy, the group scored highest in the “Invitation” – or women’s – section of the competition.
President of High Spirits Harmony, Alice Norman, said: “I am so proud of our singing group. We work hard to continue to grow and improve; and this has been reflected, once again, in our win at competition.”
|Champagne and celebrations were in order for High Spirits Harmony after a very successful debut at the Adelaide Eisteddfod. Competing in the Open Age Small Choirs section of the eisteddfod at Elder Hall on Thursday, June 16, we placed third in a very competitive field. And two days later we won the inaugural Barbershop Chorus section against some tough competition. Not only was it a thrill to win, but it was also a wonderful experience to sing with other groups in the beautiful acoustics of Pilgrim Uniting Church in the city.|
High Spirits Harmony has topped the field for women’s choruses in its first venture into competition. We took out the Open Chorus Memorial Shield in the Barbershop Harmony Australia Central Region competition. The perpetual shield was introduced this year for the runner-up in the Open (men’s and women’s) section of the competition. We also scored highest in the “Invitation” – or women’s – section of the competition. So proud of all the singers and our awesome director, Matthew Lykos.
|HSH loved harmonising at the Our Hearts in Harmony concert, presented by BHA Central Region. It was great to share the stage with other local choruses and quartets - and to be supported by such an enthusiastic audience.|
|High Spirits Harmony has just celebrated its FIRST birthday. Our birthday present to ourselves is a brand new website. We hope you enjoy it.|
