OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We are a group of women who are passionate about singing acapella barbershop music. In seeking excellence, we share the joy of performing together in our community and in competition as well as fostering friendship and personal growth.
AREAS OF FOCUS
Education and Training
Rehearsals are each Thursday from 7 pm to 9.30 pm, at UFS Hall, 84 Tay Street, go down the alleyway beside Mamma Lina’s restaurant, and come up the steps and in the doors on the left. See the photo below.
The rehearsal starts at 7 pm and our aim is to rehearse until 9.30 pm but often we go a little later. Some of us go for a coffee after the rehearsal just because we need a little time to talk about all the things that are bubbling within us. We can´t talk about all those things on the risers because that would take valuable time taken from music and showmanship.
If you feel that this chorus could be something for you we encourage you to contact us. You are welcome to visit one of our rehearsals. If you would like to take part as a member of our group you will be voice placed, which means that Sarah, our director, will listen to your voice and advise you to be part of one of the four sections; bass, baritone, lead or tenor.
For 6 weeks you will be offered an introduction to this special form of music and during this time you are expected to learn at least one song off paper. There is an audition procedure which you must pass before being accepted as a chorus member. This may sound very serious but we try to make this a friendly experience although we have to ensure that we can continue to perform at a high standard.
You will learn more about the audition procedure during your introductory 6 weeks.
If you want to ask us anything, please send us an email, call, text, write a letter or drop in…… It doesn´t matter how you contact us, the important thing is that you contact us if you would like to join us or if you want to engage us for a sing-out.
