Sounds of Hawkes Bay Chorus was formed in  2005 by the merging of Twin City Sounds and Art Deco City Chorus.  We are one of over 16 chartered choruses in New Zealand singing a cappella in the barbershop style of four part harmony.

Many years ago barbershop was a male musical craft originating in the southern States of USA, but now nearly 27,000 women participate around the world under the guidance of Sweet Adelines International.
