Best ever Convention performance for Capital Chorus
Members of Capital Chorus enjoyed a record-breaking weekend at the annual convention of the British Association of Barbershop Singers, held in Llandudno at the end of May 2015.
The West London club achieved their best ever score from the competition judges. The nine judges awarded them an overall score of 64.2 per cent, placing them 18th out of thirty-six competing choruses.
Afterwards the chorus’s recently-appointed Musical Director Pippa Goodall said:
” I am so proud of everyone who took part - we put a lot of hard work into the songs and it obviously showed! I lost count of the amount of people who came up to congratulate us, and so many mentioned the enthusiasm you showed on stage, which made me very happy.”
The result is an improvement on the chorus’s previous best score of 63.6 per cent, achieved last year. Pippa, who was appointed in February as Chorus Director continued:
“if we can do that in 4 months, I am extremely excited to see what we can do with a whole year!”
The chorus’s competition set comprised two songs, the First World War ballad “If You Were The Only Girl In The World” and the upbeat revue number “Sentimental Gentleman From Georgia”.
