Hundreds of singers from all over New Zealand are in Invercargill this weekend for a national singing competition.

Invercargill is hosting the New Zealand Association of Barbershop Singers convention for the first time.

Barbershop is unaccompanied four-part, close-harmony singing for men's voices.

Songs from ballads to pop and rock can be sung in the barbershop style.

The convention is a competition for New Zealand barbershop singers, with judges coming from Canada, America, and Australia.

There will also be two guest quartets performing at the convention, The Musical Island Boys from Wellington, who have achieved second place in international competitions for three years running, and Lunch Break from Nashville, Tennessee in America.

Chorus competitions start tomorrow at the Civic Theatre.

Admission is $5 for adults, students go free.

While the Convention Show of Champions concert, including the guest quartets, is on tomorrow at 7.30pm.

Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors, and $20 for students, available at the Invercargill City Council booking office.
