About us

 

The Chordettes were formed in 1974 and are one of the founder clubs in the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS).

 

In 1992 the chorus won the British Ladies Barbershop Championships and had the priveledge of representing Britain in America the following year.

 

More recently in 2011 we became the International Bronze medallists at the International Barbershop Convention which was held in Galway, Ireland.

 

As you can see from the picture we are a mixed group of ladies with our youngest member being only 10 years old .... and she LOVES it.  We are always growing and changing; learning new songs, making new friends, having new experiences and adventures.

Once a year we take part in the Ladies Barbershop Convention where thousands of us meet up to compete, to sing together and to have fun.

Our Musical Director - Jane Barry
 
 
Jane Barry   has been singing Barbershop (four part close harmony) for over 25 years and in that time has sung three of the four parts! She has won one chorus gold, and four chorus bronze medals in competitions in the UK and Ireland and has competed three times in quartets in the UK championships.
 
None of this came without hard work and determination, which are values she holds dear today and  is delighted to be the MD of a wonderful chorus who share the same views.
 
Jane looks forward to a future with The Chordettes full of fun, hard work, and friendship, singing some great songs in this unique style.
