Repertoire

Our repertoire is constantly evolving but always has a mixture of Show numbers, popular items from the last 70 years, light classics, and folk, community and novelty pieces.  For example, our 2015 concert included several Oscar-winning songs from films between 1952 and 1994, a Disney sequence, and a selection from the Bond Movies – as well as several Classical pieces.  All of this is in a mixture of harmony and unison, so that everyone gets to sing the tune at some point.

Our 2016 concert included Medleys from Phantom of the Opera and Guys & Dolls, numbers from other musicals between the 60’s and 80’s, and numbers from Queen and ABBA.
