    Description: Discover Barbershop A Cappella - Free Choir Taster Sessions (two weeks)

    🎢 Calling all shower singers, avid choir lovers, and car crooners! 🎢

    Have you ever felt the irresistible urge to harmonise, try a barbershop chorus, or want a new choir to sing with? Well, get prepared - because Avon Harmony A Cappella in Bristol is rolling out the red carpet for YOU!  

    And we want to particularly attract keen singers who may want to join us at our return to the annual LABBS barbershop convention in October half term and then beyond into our 50th year as a choir in 2025🌟 It's an exciting time. Last time we went was in 2019.

    Embark on a musical adventure with us at our FREE trial "Discover Barbershop A Cappella" event over two weeks on Thursdays, June 27th and July 4th, from 7:30 pm to 9.30 pm at Glenfrome Primary School in Bristol.

    These will be evenings filled with quality singing, laughter, harmony, and the joy of singing together. Whether you're a seasoned soprano or a newbie alto who thinks their voice is lower than average - we have a spot just for you!

    We are particularly recruiting people who don't want to sing the tune as well as melody singers. This includes low Alto 2 singers to help bolster our women who sing the lowest notes, alto 1's who sing all the spare notes to make up the chords (a very special melody!), and a Sop 1 harmony part—although everyone is welcome.

    At Avon Harmony, our mantra is simple: support, laughter, and boundless musical exploration. Explore A Cappella choir with singalong tracks or sheet music – your choice! Worried about your experience level? Fear not! We welcome singers of all ages and backgrounds with open arms.

    But wait, there's more! 🌟 As if the sheer joy of singing together wasn't enough, we're on a mission to recruit singers to join us at the prestigious LABBS Barbershop convention in Bournemouth this October. Picture yourself on stage, surrounded by fellow friends, belting out our latest convention song with gusto!

    That's why we are running this Discover Barbershop A Cappella course: so you can have a couple of free trial sessions to see if we are a good fit for you. We will also be working on one of our potential convention songs so you can get a feel for what we do and how we do it.

    And for those of you thinking, "I don't have a clue about a cappella or barbershop," don't panic! We'll nurture your talents every step of the way, whatever your level of experience. At Avon Harmony, we're not just a choir – we're friends united by our love for music and our unwavering support for one another.

    So, what are you waiting for? Mark your calendars, gather your friends, and join us for an evening of harmony, laughter, and unforgettable memories. Trust us, you won't want to miss this! 🎢✨

    Participation is free, but you must register to reserve a spot in the choir.
