LABBS Convention here we come
Fascinating Rhythm held an all-day rehearsal, followed by a dress rehearsal performance, on Saturday, 9 October, in preparation for the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS) annual convention.
Fascinating Rhythm members have been working hard throughout the year to develop and polish their convention package, which consists of two contrasting songs in the traditional barbershop style, that they will take to the competition stage at the Bournemouth International Centre on 29 October 2022.
Fascinating Rhythm performed a selection of numbers from their repertoire alongside the two convention songs. The chorus members’ favourite ballad ‘And So It Goes’ by Billy Joel, was featured alongside the pop song ‘Titanium’ by David Guetta, ‘Listen To The Music’ by the Doobie Brothers and the Nina Simone classic ‘Feeling Good’.
After two years of being unable to hold an in-person event due to the covid-19 pandemic, this year’s LABBS Convention has ‘jubilation’ as its theme.
“Jubilations, this year’s convention theme, is just perfect. A huge celebration of being back together with all our sister choruses, the jubilation that we survived as a group through the pandemic, and a personal thank you from me to my singers for working incredibly hard as we made our way back to vocal health and magical music making, pure dedication and passion. Absolutely, Jubilations!”Jo, Fascinating Rhythm’s Musical Director,
