Welcome to the Chordettes Acappella Chorus, an all female choir based near Newton Abbot in South Devon. We are a fun, dynamic chorus of ladies who sing well known songs in four-part a cappella arrangements. We love to sing and have fun, with members from a variety of backgrounds but with tons in common – not least our love for singing and our desire to continually improve whilst being part of a friendly, happy chorus.
ABOUT THE CHORUS
Celebrating 45 Years
The Chordettes formed in 1974 in Teignmouth, Devon and are one of the founder clubs of the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS). We are proud of our long history and relationship with LABBS and continue to support and engage with the association today.
In 1992 our chorus won the British Ladies Barbershop Championships and had the privilege of representing Britain in America the following year. More recently we became the International Bronze Medallists at the International Barbershop Convention in Galway, Ireland.
We compete in the LABBS Annual Convention every year and enjoy the challenge of improving our performances.
The Chordettes Acappela Chorus continues as a choir from Newton Abbot and to be a fun group of ladies of all ages who get together for the enjoyment of singing well known songs in a cappella four-part harmony.
We now rehearse in Abbotskerswell Village Hall on Wednesday evenings from 7pm every week. Our members come from all backgrounds and all walks of life, and we always make new members very welcome.
Whether its singing on Wednesday evenings, taking part in our frequent shows and sing outs, participating in our regular Friday walks (which always end in coffee and cake!) or competing each year at Convention, Chordettes always know how to have a good time. Come and see for yourself!
We are a “Competition Chorus” and each year we compete at the LABBS Annual Convention. As a chorus we work towards improving our singing and our performances – its always fun but we do enjoy learning and challenging ourselves.
Part of this improvement involves having “Education Days” or week-ends when we invite a coach to come and spend time with us, helping our singing and performance technique and putting us through our paces!
We are very lucky to have had the opportunity to welcome some of the top coaches in the world to work with us, and always find that we finish these sessions absolutely buzzing.
