About Us

The Manawatu Overtones is a four-part harmony, barbershop style, women’s 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.  

Our present membership is around 30 with women travelling from around Palmerston North and from neighbouring towns of Feilding, Woodville and Levin.   We are a fabulous group of ladies enjoying fun, friendship & learning.
