|Last June Capital Chorus held a course to give the opportunity to those with an interest to find out about singing in close harmony, and, over six weeks, to give it a try. Four people enrolled, and we're delighted that, when the course ended, three of them decided to stay on and join the chorus.
Raj (left) has joined the lead section. On the day of the Royal Wedding he was walking across Lammas Park when he spotted members of the chorus singing in the shade of a tree. He stopped to listen. We were promoting our course and Raj took a leaflet. A few moments later he texted to book his place.
Rory (centre) had sung in choirs before, but he'd never tried Barbershop. When he spotted one of our posters while out and about in Ealing, he thought he'd give it a go. He's now a bass, helping out on the deepest, lowest notes.
Terry (right) has joined our tenor section. He has a lively interest in choral music and song from around the world, and while travelling in the far east he sang with groups in Japan and Vietnam. Terry found our chorus online, and after the course he decided our style and our approach to singing could help him further develop his vocal skills.
It's our great pleasure to have all three new members join us on the risers. They're all tremendous singers, and they seem to have taken to the fun and camaraderie of a chorus where we enjoy working together and supporting one another. We try not to take ourselves too seriously, but we always aim to perform to our best ability. Welcome All!
