On Wednesday 6th March, the Barberettes sang in the final of the Let’s Sing 2019 competition at The Hexagon in Reading. 

It was my first ever competition with the Barberettes and was exciting to sing in front of a large crowd on a stage. Emma – our MD – had chosen the songs ‘True Colours’ and ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ for us which we’d practiced non stop.

Finally, after watching all of the junior choirs perform, it was our turn first out of the 8 adult choirs who were competing in the adult category. We sang our hearts out! 

After everyone sang their first song, the judges went off to deliberate and chose 6 choirs – junior and senior – to go through to sing their second song. Unfortunately, on this occasion, that didn’t include the Barbs. 

Although we didn’t make it through to round 2, we all had a great time. It was a fantastic experience singing with everyone and it continues to excite me for all of the sing outs to come over the year! 

Go Team Barbs!
