The Ladies are a dynamic group of women committed to making music with sincerity and joy. They began their career together preparing for the 2016 Rising Star Competition and won first place in New Zealand. Since becoming the 2016 International Rising Star Champions, The Ladies have taught all around the country at various a cappella and barbershop camps, and entertained audiences around the globe. As music educators and long time barbershoppers with over 30 years of combined barbershop singing experience, they have enjoyed spreading the love of harmony with musicians of all ages, and look forward to continuing to do so in the years to come!
