Harmonie’s sêr group performed at the preliminary round on the 4th of August and made it to the semi-finals, which was held on the 11th of August in the Endler auditorium. It was no sêr-prise that, from the moment they opened their mouths, our girls were greeted by sêr hands shooting up all over the auditorium.
We experienced a blast from the past from the 80’s with our ladies, singing songs like It’s Raining Men, and the audience’s personal favorite: I Need a Hero. Other songs not from the 80’s included Ntyilo, My Heart Will Go On, and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough. Our girls had a stage presence that demanded the audience’s attention and the arrangements they sang contained complex harmonies (pun intended) that left the crowd wondering if it was safe to applaud after the songs. This amazing complexity if what made Harmonie stand out amongst the other groups. The songs flowed into one another effortlessly, with creative choreography to accompany them.
Our girls put in a lot of hard work and time into sêr, rehearsing two to three times a week. They also had a sêr camp from the 6th until the 9th of June. We are immensely proud of all of them and very thankful for Blaine Josephs, who arranged and composed the music, as well as for Sedi who did the choreography. The bar has sêr-iously been raised!
