Sweet songs of success College quartet win By KAROLINE TUCKEY Awesome foursome: Aotea College's The Fource harmonise their way to victory at the Rising Star Quartet Contest championships in Houston. From left, Knoxana Leasi, 17, Olivia Samuel, 18, Theodora Esera, 17, and Georgina Peniamina, 17. An Aotea College barbershop quartet has taken the world of barbershop singing by storm, win- ning a top international compe- tition in Texas. The Fource, made up of Knox- ana Leasi, Theodora Esera and Georgina Peniamina, all 17, and Olivia Samuel, 18, competed in the Rising Stars under-25 section of the Sweet Adelines Inter- national convention last month. They also took part last year, placing second, so were expected to do well. However, the compe- tition was even tougher this year, Aotea College head of performing arts and coach Marilyn Baigent says. It's the top contest, it's what you aspire to, and coming first was just a wonderful moment.'' The girls flew home last week, still stunned by their success and dazed from jet lag. It's like the world's biggest bar- bershop contest,'' Olivia says. It's big,'' Georgina agrees. It's huge,'' adds Theodora. There were about 4000 in the audience and when we went up on stage to get our award, they turned on all the lights on the audience so we could see there was a standing ovation. Our jaws just dropped, it was amazing.'' The girls deserved the win, Mrs Baigent says. They have a dis- tinctly rich and warm Pacific sound that is not common in inter- national barbershop competition. They only got one chance. They are on stage for six minutes only, and even though they were very nervous they did extremely well.'' The Fource scored 383 out of 400 points, were complimented by the judges for their clever and expressive interpretations, joyous harmonies, and the ease and con- sistency they displayed. Every time we perform we come off stage and say there's things we could go back on stage and do differently,'' Olivia says. But when I think about it I think wow, we actually won'.'' Their two songs were a flirty'' teenage interpretation of jazz standard My Baby Just Cares for Me, and the love song All the Way. For now though the girls have their feet firmly on the ground, with year 13 final exams just a week away.
