The Baden Street Singers were formed in early June 2015 when our director, Lionel Pierson, saw an opportunity to enter a small mixed harmony chorus into the Young Singers in Harmony Australian National Youth Chorus Competition. This opportunity arose when Barbershop Harmony Australia opened its biennial national competition to include the participation of mixed harmony within its longstanding men’s competition. Only three months after having been formed, our first ever performance came about on the competition stage in Melbourne in the third week of September, where we managed to come away with the title of Young Singers in Harmony National Chorus Champions. Two years later, at the BHA National Convention in Sydney, The Baden Street Singers achieved the best score of all the Australian choruses, higher than even the winning Champion mens chorus.
Since then, The Baden Street Singers have appeared in shows alongside the multiple Champion BHA chorus Vocal Evolution, and recently appeared at the Perth Fringe in their sell out show Acapocalypse.
