One Acchord is a Ladies A Cappella Chorus with a current membership of around 30. We come from all over the Border area with members from Ancrum, Galashiels, Jedburgh, Kelso, Leitholm, Duns, Coldstream, and other villages, as well as St Boswells.
We are a sociable group and our monthly Saturday rehearsals always start with lunch which is provided by members of the chorus. There's always a good mix of Savoury, Sweet and Vegetarian options. As it's a longer rehearsal on the Saturday we also schedule a tea break in too! Our visitors always remark on the wonderful lunch and the opportunity it provides for socialising and we believe that we are unique in this respect.
We are members of the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS) and competed in our first Convention at Harrogate in October 2018. A great time was had by all and we came away with the trophy for the whatever it was
We have performed at various venues around the Borders - Born In The Borders, Care Homes, Volunteer Hall Galashiels, even busked at the Edinburgh Fringe. We are hoping to put on our own show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2020 - so why not come along and be a part of it.
Our Musical Director is Nick Drew.
