We are delighted to announce that the chorus is to host a free 6-week course for men singers.

It runs from 7.30pm – 9.00pm from Tuesday 25th September 2018 at the Carlton Junior Academy on Foxhill Road, Carlton, Nottingham, NG4 1QT.

Whether you sing in a choir, ensemble, sing karaoke or you are an accomplished solo singer this course may spice things up by offering a new challenge. It will also be ideal for those lapsed singers who want to return to singing.

'Barbershop' is four part acapella close harmony. It's not all straw boaters and waistcoats. It can be demanding but the exhilaration experienced when everything locks and rings is something that has to be experienced to appreciate.

The start of the course will look at what 'Barbershop' harmony is, the four voice parts, how we use the music score (Don’t worry if you can't read music, not many of our members can!). You will be allocated a voice part and sing some simple harmonies. You will be given access to some music scores and teaching tracks.

The main body of the course will be about some fun exercises and learning a couple of songs in the Barbershop style. Advice and tuition on the style will be incorporated in the song learning.

At the conclusion you will be able to perform both songs competently within the chorus.
