A Visit With The Barbs

Thank you to Marcia and The Barberettes for letting me visit your chorus. As a member of the100 strong Sweet Adelines barbershop chorus A Cappella West in Perth, Western Australia it was very interesting to see a smaller chorus strutting their stuff.

The most interesting observation was that all chorus members kept their eyes on the director for the duration of each song. I guess in a smaller chorus there’s nowhere to hide!!

You have a great sound with good resonance. It was a pleasure to listen to. I hope to visit again on my next UK trip.
