Harrogate Competition

We had a great time in Harrogate, although we didn’t manage to come away with any trophies.It was a memorable time particularly for  five of our 16 singers who were performing at Convention for the first time !

Competing against 34 other choruses, including the biggest and best of the nation’s barbershop singers,  is no mean feat  and they did an excellent job.

If you’d like to come and have fun singing with us we are open to all, whether you are already an accomplished singer  or an absolute beginniner.   Just  send us an e-mail at [email protected] or drop in on one of our rehearsals. We rehearse every Wednesday night at St Andrews Centre in Pershore, opposite the Abbey, starting at 7.45pm.

A warm welcome awaits you.

And talking of newcomers, we say a big hello to two new guys who’ve done just that… one who was cycling by and dropped in on us and another who wasn’t sure whether or not he could sing. He now knows that he can sing and we’re delighted to have them both with us. Cheers chaps.
