Avon Harmony Chorus is among the longest-running women's Barbershop A Cappella choirs in the whole of the UK, formed in 1975 in Bristol (take a look at our History Page). We attract singers who are happy to identify as women 18+ = welcoming all ages and singing experiences from all walks of life who want to sing and perform at a high standard.
Our choir enters the annual LABBS national barbershop competition each October Half Term and perform at regular events throughout the year, from Weddings, Concerts, Varied Events and much more.
WHAT DO WE SING?
We sing a variety of music from songs from the Movies, West End shows, Contemporary Music, Pop, Retro, and Classic to classic barbershop music. From Adele A cappella covers to 40's Classic Numbers like Beyond The Sea, we have something for everyone to entertain and delight our audiences.
BARBERSHOP STYLE- MORE THAN A CHOIR!
Barbershop music is made up of four unaccompanied parts. The melody is consistently sung by the LEAD line, with the TENOR part harmonizing above the melody line, the BASS part singing the lowest harmonizing line, and the BARITONE completing the chord.
These parts can either be sung by individuals to create a quartet or by numerous voices, so forming a chorus of singers. This close harmony is easily recognisable as the unique barbershop sound.
OUR SINGING PASSION THAT YOU CAN SHARE
We love what we do and want to take the world by storm by booking us, watching us and joining us. We need a wide range of women and those who identify as women. All voices, young and old, who can sing in tune and who want to come on the choir adventure with us. Take a look at our Join Us page for more information, or give Mary (MD) a ring at 07954 170532.
