2022 LABBS Convention - October 28-30th, 2022
Chorus Iceni will be competing once again at the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers annual convention, held at the Bournemouth International Centre.
What is Convention?
Convention is an annual opportunity for all LABBS members, family, and friends to get together. It is a chance for quartets and choruses to compete in a supportive and friendly way and is often a riot of colour and complex choreography. In addition to competition, Convention also includes a schedule of education sessions - LABBS FRINGE - led by the LABBS education team, often supported by external educators and VIP guests. All of this is topped off with two fabulous shows, showcasing the annual champions and amazing guests.
As if that wasn't enough, each evening sees an opportunity to Afterglow - a traditional end to any barbershopping day when singers and guests meet to chat and sing until the early hours - with old friends and new. The event is open to all, with the opportunity to drop in for a day or be emersed in both competition and education sessions for a full fun-packed 3 day weekend.
"Come and Sing Course" - November 2022
As we continue to welcome new members to the chorus, we will be hosting a Come and Sing Course in November. The aim will be to have potential members join us for 3 Monday evenings to learn a Christmas song with us. New members will then be able to join us to sing the new song at one of the Co-op store sing outs we will be doing in the run up to Christmas.
The course will be held during our weekly rehearsal at Great Bromley Village Hall, and dates will be:
• Monday 14th November
• Monday 21st November
• Monday 28th November
Please come join us!
