  • Live Rehearsals Recommencing on 22 June
  •  Date Posted: Thu, 18 Jun 2020
    It’s very exciting to know that we can, and will, officially recommence rehearsals on Monday June 22 at 7.00pm!

    To be able to do this we were required to submit a COVID19 safety plan to the management of our rehearsal venue. This plan has been has been approved and we are expected to abide by certain conditions so that we may continue to rehearse. 

    Here's the plan:
    1. Social distancing is still in place so we will be spacing out members (2sqm rule) when we sing. We will have spots marked out where singers will stand.
    2. Chairs will be placed 1.5m apart around the edge of the hall on which you can leave any belongings you may have.
    3. We will appoint someone to monitor social distancing on the night so don’t be offended if you are suddenly tackled to the ground, handcuffed and removed from the premises for disregarding the “distancing”. 
    4. You will be required to use hand sanitiser (provided) before entering the hall and it will be available for use when you leave.
    5. You will be required to enter your full name and phone number on an attendance sheet. We will be submitting this information to the venue management each week.
    6. If you notice any signs of fever, dry cough, runny nose or any other respiratory symptoms then you are expected to refrain from coming to rehearsal. Just make sure you let us know.
    7. If you suspect that you may have, or definitely have, come into contact with a person who has COVID19 then please do not come to rehearsal, and inform someone on the leadership team.
    8. If any member contracts COVID19 then we will have to suspend rehearsals for at least two weeks. All cases will be reviewed individually based on frequency of attendance to rehearsal of said member and actual diagnosis.
    9. We will be expected to clean door handles at the end of rehearsals and any other surfaces we may use such as tables or benches (this includes toilet area).
    10. For the time being we will restrict rehearsals to members or those who intend to become members so that numbers are kept to a minimum.
    Please note that for regular members who feel that it is not appropriate for themselves to recommence in-person rehearsals at this time then that is absolutely fine! This is a personal decision so we encourage members to return only when they believe it is safe or appropriate for them to do so.

    If you would like any other information on COVID19 then visit

    Looking forward to singing with you all on Monday!

  •  Date Posted: Tue, 3 Oct 2017
    At the end of September 2017 Vocal Evolution travelled to Sydney to participate in the Pan Pacific Barbershop convention, along with choruses from New Zealand and Japan. As the retiring Australian champions we were only eligible to compete in the Pan Pacific competition, and we were very pleased to come third and win the bronze medal.

  • Gold Medal winners
  •  Date Posted: Sun, 2 Oct 2016
    At the BHA Convention in Newcastle this weekend, Vocal Evolution won the open chorus competition to become the National Champions for 2016. We are thrilled to have achieved this in the face of exceptional performances from several other choruses, particularly considering that we had had to change one of our songs only four weeks ago due to a copyright issue.

  •  Date Posted: Fri, 25 Sep 2015
    Vocal Evolution has just returned from Melbourne, where they competed with 19 other choruses from around Australia for the BHA Championship. They won the large chorus trophy, and placed third overall to win the bronze medal, behind Sound Connection (from Brisbane) who won gold, and the Festival Statesmen (from Adelaide) who won silver.
    On top of the chorus success, the quartet competition was won by Lockout, which was one of seven competing quartets containing members of Vocal Evolution. We are immensely proud of these singers, and are sure that they will go on to do great things in the future.
  • Praises from Hellena College
  •  Date Posted: Thu, 3 Sep 2015
    Below is the feedback we received after our concert/workshop/open rehearsal visit at Helena College on Monday 31st August. Well done everyone!

    Wow - what a successful night.  The students have not stopped raving to their teachers about how much fun they had!  Teachers who weren’t even there have been telling me how the choir students are telling everyone how awesome it was.  One Mum told me her daughter went home and spent an hour at the piano singing until she was forced to go to bed!  Our Executive team who were in the from row behind VE have commented what an amazing opportunity for our choir to see such professionals.  
    Personally, my 15 year old son has decided he is now going to join choir.
    I’m sure this will open many doors for our choir and students who would not have been given this exposure if it wasn’t for your group.
    Thank you so much for coming all the way up the hill to our little school.  You really were an inspiration.  We wish you every success at your upcoming competition.
    Kind Regards
    Mrs Ruth Gallagher
    Instrumental Development Programme Coordinator
