FORGET traditional bus tunes - the women of Rhythms of the Reef were a chorus of sweet song as they embarked on their journey to Canberra to perform at the annual Sweet Adeline's National Convention.

Chorus group member Di Bright said the group of 17 women, who used to perform under the name of Hinkler Harmony, were getting prepared to sing at the Australian National University tomorrow.

"This is our third competition, but our first competition under our new name," she said.

Mrs Bright said the competition first began in the United States and was held across other countries and continents.

"It's women's barbershop - it's based on four-part harmony and we sing a capella," she said.

Mrs Bright said the group would be competing against 19 other choruses of varying sizes from across Australia.

"Our group is considered a small chorus," she said.

"We are in the small chorus section.

"Small choruses can win just as much as the larger choruses can."

The singer said three judges from America had come especially for the convention.

"They critique us and we get judged on our showmanship and singing ability," she said.

Mrs Bright said the group hoped to improve on past performances.

"We're not aspiring to win it because we're not experienced - we're still learning our craft," she said.
