This website was developed by Mark Virtue, an Australian male bass singing with Sydney Harmony and with the quartet Ignition!.
Mark runs a small website consultancy based in Sydney called Virtual Creations, and has developed a unique website technology.

Mike Hailey (a recent secretary of Sydney Harmony) 0419 803339, and John Dam (recent secretary of the River City Clippers) 0418 747678 are religious converts to this technology, and can explain the benefits of it to you if you call them.
