Barbershop Choruses - Female
'We sing a cappella, that is, unaccompanied music, in many styles including barbershop. We are always looking for new members. No experience is necessary, just a commitment to the chorus and a desire to achieve the highest standards.'
'A lively and entertaining group of female a cappella singers, who were founded in 1976 ... We rehearse weekly in Woodley near Reading, and perform regularly around Berkshire and beyond. Our repertoire spans 100 years of popular music; we sing in the barbershop style - four part close harmony.'
'The Belles are always keen to welcome new members to join us. Whether you love to be a diva singing the tune, or enjoy the tinkly top notes or bassy low notes, there is a part for you to sing! Singers with any level of experience are welcome - you will learn lots very quickly!'
'A UK Top 10 Chorus, of around 40 ladies, that has been meeting and making music since 1977 ... The Chorus is available for bookings, performing in and around the Bristol area. At the end of October each year, we compete at the Ladies’ Association of British Barbershop Singers Convention.'
'Originally formed in 1993 by a group of friends with a passion for singing, we have steadily grown in size and stature to become one of the most successful all female acapella choruses in the UK. With members from all walks of life, from all over the north of England, ranging from the age of 10 to 60+, we work hard to achieve very high standards while having a great deal of fun along the way enjoying the great friendships that we share. We are an award-winning choir - taking gold, silver or bronze in every national competition we have entered ... As members of the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS), we have competed very successfully in UK and European barbershop competitions over many years ...'
'The singing style is four-part unaccompanied harmony and ladies of all levels of musical ability are welcome, from those with no experience to those who are already accomplished singers. We have a wide-ranging repertoire, from old ballads such as "When I Fall in Love" to modern upbeat numbers such as "One Fine Day" and "Under the Boardwalk" and songs from shows. Ladies do not need to be able to read music as materials and assistance are provided to enable non music readers to learn their part by ear.'
'A 60+ strong Ladies Barbershop Chorus. Like all singing groups, our voices are organised into different voice sections and, in Barbershop singing, these range from the highest voice, Tenor, down the scale through Lead, Baritone to the bottom with the Bass section. Each section has its own leader supported by an assistant, and the whole chorus is directed by a Musical Director (MD). Each song is learned by heart – we don’t sing with sheet music in Barbershop which means that we also don’t have to stand still while we sing. To make the most of this opportunity, we also have a choreographer who helps to create the right visual effect for song staging.'
'LABBS is one of three barbershop-singing organisations in the United Kingdom, and the only purely-British organisation for female barbershop singers. Our members love to sing and we take every opportunity to share our love of barbershop and our passion for harmony, wherever we can. Since its establishment in 1976, LABBS has grown to have 50 clubs and over 2000 members who are located up, down and across the country from Cornwall to Scotland.'
