A southern barbershop group featuring 15 Invercargill men has been crowned national champions.
Southern Sou'NZ won the gold medal in the small chorus competition at the weekend's New Zealand Association of Barbershop Singers Convention in Invercargill.
The southern group, featuring 15 Invercargill men and five from Dunedin, took the gold medal ahead of a more fancied Marlborough group who claimed the silver.
The Sou'NZ chorus group is holding an open night on October 22 at the Richmond Grove Church hall in Yarrow St, Invercargill, for anyone interested in joining.
The weekend's barbershop convention featured about 340 participants from across New Zealand. International judges were brought to Invercargill to judge the events.
On Saturday night the Civic Theatre was packed for the Parade of Champions concert put on by the winners of each category.
