Gosport Music Festival

04 November 18

Well done boys ...the bar has just been raised again. Placed second in each of the three categories we entered ( small chorus , acapella, show songs) This is an incredible achievement compared to a year ago. We know we sang and performed well against strong opposition and we all had great fun and a good day out. Thanks to all our supporters who came along and made plenty of noise. This can be summed up by two comments - " as smooth as silk" Festival Head Judge - "the performances you gave were excellent" Steve Morris. (MD). Congats. to Steve for his two quartet winning cups and being on stage directing or singing more than anyone else ! We also teamed up with Wight Harmony for a mini afterglow in the Seahorse afterwards - EPIC what a sound!

We received great written feedback from WightLink about our performance at the naming ceremony for the Victoria of Wight. "our unique barbershop style and how well it fitted with the occasion" and "being so professional in coping with last minute changes of was great to have adaptable performers to make the transition simple". Our fee for the event from WightLink was donated to Cancer Research UK "as a way of thanking you for your excellent performance" . It is rewarding for us that our singing, which we love doing , can make such an impact and contribution.

What a day for a pies in the face and no sleepy bull toads but what a day for our Learn to Sing participants . They celebrated the final session of the course by performing DayDream with the chorus to a live audience of family and friends. What a fabulous job they did to ! Steve our MD was really impressed by the quality and commitment by those on the course and proud to present each with a certificate to commemorate the occasion. The chorus were also on form singing a collection of their favourite repertoire songs. Congratulations to Mike Peacock who has already passed his audition and provides a great addition to our lead section. All credit to our MD Steve Morris, our Music Team for putting together the course, and our guest educators Dave Bryant and Mike Taylor. Thanks to each and very chorus member for supporting our newbies at rehearsals and providing a warm and friendly welcome - this is what make our chorus so special.
