‘The Sussex Harmonisers’ is the name of our Charitable Foundation that entertains and educates audiences in unaccompanied singing, specialising in the Barbershop style of 4 part harmony in which we compete with great success on a national basis with other Barbershop singers at the annual conventions of the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS). A complete profile is available at www.sussexharmonisers.org.uk
We currently have two main chorus ensembles;
-A male chorus of some 35 members, ‘The Sussex Kings of Harmony’
-A female chorus of some 20 members, ‘Sussex a cappella’
We also put together smaller ensembles and a mixed chorus made up from these main choruses to meet particular demand.
We are Based in Burgess Hill rehearsing weekly at Woodlands Mead College just behind Burgess Hill School for Girls. Our repertoire evolves all the time and currently includes arrangements of songs originated by Queen, Adele, Elbow, Elton John, Mammas and Pappas, Bob Dylan and Billy Joel. At the Barbershop Convention in May this year, we performed a new song specially arranged for us by Theodore Hicks called ‘Die a Happy Man‘.
Musical Direction is provided by a long experienced and award winning directors who are supported by a very talented Deputy Director for the male singers and an Assistant Director who is also a singing coach and musical arranger.
