After many weeks of focused singing and choreography practise, the Sound Connection chorus were absolutely delighted with their first place result at the Barbershop Harmony Australia (BHA) Sunshine Region competition at Toowoomba on the weekend of 27th and 28th April 2013. After braving the one hour plus delays on the Toowoomba range on the Friday night the chorus joined with other BHA choruses from the region early on Saturday morning, in a massed sing at Alford Place in the city centre. (site of the 2011 flash flooding through the centre of Toowoomba). The delegates then gathered at Downlands College to compete in the annual Sunshine Region(Qld) BHA competition. They were hoping to make it two in a row after winning in 2011 after just three months of singing together as a chorus. The chorus would like to congratulate all of the competitors and thank the organisers for such a successful weekend of singing, friendship and camaraderie.
