Congratulations London’s Gay Men’s Choir!
This is a CHORUS and not a choir. They sing ‘American Barbershop’ as I did when I was a member of ‘The Solent City Chorus’ In Portsmouth UK. The ‘London Gay Men’s Chorus’ has been around for years and I met some of them and heard them sing at ‘Barbershop Convention.’ Barbershop singing is strictly four part harmony Tenor,Lead Singer, Baritone and Base singer. No instrumental music, just voice harmony and it is wonderful. You Londoner’s ought to listen to these Gay Chorus singers, and help give them the support they need and not just because they are Gay but because they spread ‘Harmony.’
Now that you mention it, Brian, I am surprised ayt how little support that story has had.
These guys rehearse at least once a week and sometimes all day on Saturdays, and they form bonds of friendship that last a lifetime.
They are to be applauded over and over again. Bravo!
Thanks for your comments. To my knowledge we have never been to a Barber Shop Convention. We do rehearse every week and sometimes at he weekend and are also apearing at the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank in “Sandi Toksvig’s Christmas Carol”
Great to hear from you. Sing it from the heart! Bravo! Encore!!
This is dedicated to the London Gay Men’s Chorus:
“Four Strong Winds” by the Brothers Four, an oldie, but a goodie.
I have seen odd members of LGMC at convention! You ought to try Barbershop Convention sometime.
