The Overtones have just spent a wonderful retreat weekend and Chorus night with Virginia Humphrey-Taylor coaching us on our Convention package.  It's time for us to consolidate our learning and bring out the inner actress. 

The countdown is on - accommdation booked, costumes sorted - we're off to Wellington to perform at the Michael Fowler Centre 30th April. 

Exciting times. 

This month we have been busy spreading our Christmas Cheer around the region at a number of Christmas-themed sing-outs. 

An early start to the season saw us welcome Santa to the Plaza mid-November.  

More recently we spent one enjoyable Sunday afternoon singing at a number of local Rest homes and another performing a ‘Mini Concert’  to retired members of our community.  This Concert was hosted by the Kairanga Lions Club.

Just before Christmas we will be entertaining the late night Plaza shoppers and spreading some more Christmas Cheer.  


Held at the Speirs Centre, Palmerston North, 31 October 2015 we were thrilled to also have guest appearances from He Tangata, New Zealand Show Chorus directed by Virginia Humphrey-Taylor, Wellington City Chorus directed by David Brooks and Henrietta Hunkin and Revelry Quartet from Wellington City Chorus.
