Farewell to our PR guru

July was a busy month for the chorus which started with an emotional farewell to its PR guru and front row goddess, Sheena Kaighin.

Sheena is off for a bit of Northern Exposure as she swaps squirrels for bears, and foxes for moose in the 49th State.

With 1.1 square miles to mess about in she’ll have plenty of space to practise her choreo while she is away, but we hope she doesn’t get frostbite in her chorus shoes. (Don’t mention the frozen nostrils – Ed.)

Meanwhile plans are underway for our next recruitment event. In September we’ll be holding a one day workshop for anyone interested in learning more about women’s Barbershop. The title “Fame for a Day” should give you a few clues as to what we’ll be singing. So if you’ve ever fancied a go at singing, why not come along.

July ended on a high as Surrey Harmony performed in the Fairfield Halls as part of the lunchtime concert series.

Surrey Harmony have proved so popular that their appearance has become an annual event, and this year proved to be no exception. The chorus wowed the audience with pop songs from Elton John, Queen and Simon & Garfunkel and dazzled them with Barbershop classics such as “Angry Bill Bailey” and the “Dixieland One Step”. Quartet Hunky Dory proved there is strength without numbers when they sang “Music of the Night” and “Only You”.
