Welwyn Harmony Chorus is an enthusiastic women's chorus based in Welwyn Garden City and the only ladies' barbershop chorus in Hertfordshire.
We meet every Tuesday evening at the Vineyard Barn in Welwyn Garden City. Our varied repertoire includes many well known songs arranged in 4 part harmony from Pharrell Williams to Judy Garland, Queen to Elton John.
We have a chorus of around 35 members ranging in age from teenagers to ''I'd rather not say!' who come from a wide range of backgrounds and day time occupations including full time mothers, accountants, students, shop assistants, teachers, secretaries, pensioners, social workers to name but a few - but the one thing that we all have in common is . . . WE LOVE SINGING IN HARMONY, PERFORMING AND ENTERTAINING!
We're affiliated with the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS visit www.labbs.co.uk), an independent organisation for women whose primary purpose is to share its members' love of barbershop and passion for harmony. We enjoy taking part in the annually held convention when around 30-40 choruses from around the UK come together to compete and enjoy themselves over a long weekend at the end of October.
We're always on the look out for new members and later this year will likely be running another of our popular "Love to Sing" courses. Held either on Tuesday evenings or one day at the weekend, with a minimum cost, the course is suitable for women and girls aged 12 and over wanting to
- learn to sing
- improve their singing
- learn how to sing in 4 part harmony
No prior experience is required and there is no need to be able to read music. We'll teach you all you need to know to take part and perform to family and friends at the end.
