We’ve seen her energy and dynamic personality on stage at International Convention, but Surrey Harmony had not had the chance to work with Showmanship guru Becki Hine until our 2018 coaching retreat. Becki is the Master Director of the fabulous Song of Atlanta Chorus, and we were very excited about having the chance to work with her, and for her to help us create the choreography plan for our new uptune, making its debut at this year’s regional contest.
Our chorus is fortunate that we can continue to work with some of the best coaches in the barbershop world. Becki was no exception, bringing a wealth of cool and funky ideas to bring our new song to life. It’s fair to say it took us several days to recover.
We returned to the Felbridge Hotel in East Grinstead for our annual retreat weekend, which is looking resplendent now it’s a Crowne Plaza. We hope to return there one day, and to welcome Becki to our shores again in the future. The “gal from Georgia” is now an official member of the Surrey Harmony family.
Now everyone in the Chorus has 10 weeks to perfect those moves, and we look forward to sharing the stage at The Sage in May with all of our friends from Region 31. We fully expect our Master Director Lorraine and Choreographer Sue to be cracking the whip!
