Our chorus of over 60 women of all ages offers a supportive environment to enjoy and extend your singing and performance talents.
We sing four part harmony, a'capella - that is without instruments - and we have a varied repertoire with both modern and traditional Barbershop songs. The four parts are Lead (the melody), Tenor (the high parts), Baritones (the inbetween bits) and Bass (the low parts.)
When you arrive, we will voice place you, and you will join us on the risers from Day 1. We are an auditioned chorus, and you will be given several weeks, and plenty of coaching and support to get through the audition, which is done in quartet formation.
To help cover venue hire, costumes and director fees, as well as coaches and promotions, Subs are payable. and we will discuss the best way for you to pay - whether it be fortnightly, monthly or annually.
Members are invited to help boost funds by taking part in a variety of fundraising efforts. All members are at liberty to choose which projects they will get involved in, depending on their time, circumstances and interests.
We rehearse Tuesdays, from 7:30-10:00 pm and guests are welcome at all rehearsals.
