The Blenders family had a lot of success across the board. The Blenders Youth Chorus won the youth chorus contest,Upgrade Quartet (my quartet) got 2nd in the open quartet contest and The Blenders Chorus got 3rd in Australia for the open chorus contest. Many other Blenders quartets did an amazing job in contest including Electric Canoe who got 2nd in the senior quartet contest and our boys Blindside who won the open quartet contest with the highest score ever for an Australian quartet! We’re all very happy with the results and I’d like to congratulate all other competitors as well as TheFestival Statesmen Chorus for getting 2nd in the chorus contest and Vocal Evolution for getting 1st! What a comp. One of the highlights was singing in octet with Upgrade Quartet and Forefront Quartet!
