New MD for MRH

Nathan Harper has been appointed as the new musical director of MRH.

Nathan's early musical memories were listening to his grandfather playing the piano, and his family singing along to popular musicals in the car.  Nathan learnt to sing harmony in the Choir at St Peter's Cambridge, where he played the Alto Saxophone, guitar, bass, sang opera, and acted in musical theatre.  He got his first taste of barbershop in his last years of high school, singing the Boyz II Men classic "In the Still of the Nite" (badly, he recalls).  

After moving back to Hamilton, Nathan joined Mighty River Harmony in 2015.  He quickly became Lead Section Leader in 2016, won a BHNZ chorus gold medal in Sydney 2017, before becoming Assistant Director in 2018, and attended Harmony University on scholarship in 2019.  A keen quartetter, Nathan won a silver medal in the mixed division with Harper's Bizarre in 2019.  His current quartet The Usual Suspects were voted BHNZ most entertaining in 2022 and 2023, and are the current BHNZ Champion gold medalists.

Nathan lives in Matangi with his wife Helen, and daughters Charlotte and Isabelle.
