Welcome to Manawatu Overtones

The Manawatu Overtones is a four-part harmony, barbershop style, womens singing group affiliated with Sweet Adelines International.  Originally formed in late 2004 under the musical direction of Olwyn Jones, the chorus now sings under the co-direction of Sylvia Fountain and Liz Watts.

We are a thirty-strong, auditioned chorus in Palmerston North who enjoy singing together, competing with other Sweet Adelines around New Zealand and performing throughout the district including our popular Concert which we showcase every two years.  Our members travel from around the region, including Feilding and Levin to rehearse weekly.

If you'd like to find out more about us, learn about the barbershop craft, see what’s happening in our world, we welcome you to our website!
