MEET THE CHORUS
I started with the chorus eight years ago after a couple of years as Assistant Director of a chorus in Edinburgh. I currently compete with two quartets of my own and really enjoy helping the chorus improve.
Within the chorus we always look to have fun in everything we do. With the fun there also comes hard work at home. We expect all members to be willing to put in the time in at home to help the group improve as a whole. The benefits are huge in comparison to the time spent each day looking over your music.
If you love singing and want more from a hobby then this is for you. I look forward to the ringing chords!!!
Leads normally sing the melody, however they can sometimes harmonise with other parts. Their range is sung between the A below middle C to the C above middle C.
Tenors harmonise above the lead and should complement but not overpower the lead with a light, sweet, pure tinkling tone.The tenor range is from G above middle C to high F on the top line of the clef.
The Baris sing approximately the same range as the leads. The baritone harmony notes cross the lead notes, sometimes sung below and sometimes above.
Bass singers sing the lowest harmonising notes and should be able to easily sing the E flat below middle C to the G above middle C.
Basses create a rich mellow tone which creates a solid foundation for the four part harmony chord.
