Boys and Bays

Barbershop harmony has come a long way since groups of four men waiting for a haircut started singing popular songs of the day to while away the time. Later, women got into the act and today we present songs from a variety of eras, arranged in four-part harmony and, performed with no instrumental accompaniment.

Nelson Male Voice Choir under the baton of the effervescent Andrea Hamilton the NMVC can call on a vast repertoire of traditional songs, light classics, show tunes and contemporary favourites. Today the Choir is in great heart with over thirty singing members, and gives concerts for its loyal supporters several times every year. It also leads the singing at civic occasions such as Anzac Day and has given much young, local talent the opportunity to perform in front of a large audience

Nelson Bays Harmony Chorus has been part of the Nelson-Tasman music scene for more than 20 years. The group are ordinary women from all walks of life, bound together by a love for singing. They are affiliated to Sweet Adelines International, a highly respected worldwide organisation of women committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education, competition and performance. This independent, non-profit association is one of the world’s largest singing organisations for women.
