Grand Central Chorus will be hosting a unique “Together in Harmony” Barbershop Show in Nottingham on Saturday 28th April, when our special guests include Lace City Chorus. Founded in 1992 by their Musical Director Glenn Chaney, Lace City Chorus have developed into one of the most successful women’s barbershop choruses in Europe, having won the Sweet Adelines Region 31 (England, Scotland, Wales and the Netherlands) Chorus Championships an unprecedented five times - most recently in 2017.
The show is unique as it’s the very first time that Grand Central Chorus and Lace City Chorus have performed on the same show, and as two of the most successful ever UK Barbershop choruses, it will be an evening to remember!
The show also features three quartets including Finest Hour, the 2016 British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS) Champions who went on to win the European Quartet title last October! They also hold the record for the highest ever contest score by a UK Men’s Barbershop Quartet. Following the retirement last November of Phil Cuthbert, Finest Hour now has a new bass, Jonny Pipe; Jonny and the three Williams brothers are all members of our chorus, and so we are thrilled they have agreed to take part in the show.
We are also delighted that Chaos, a quartet from Lace City Chorus will also be performing, as well as Crown Derby (a mixed quartet, which comprises Dick Knight and Paul Searson from our chorus, together with their wives Delyth and Karen, who sing with the local LABBS chorus GEM Connection).
The show takes place on Saturday 28th April at The John Player Hall, Nottingham High School, Waverley Mount, Nottingham NG7 4ED starting at 7am.
