London A Cappella Fest - CottontownChorus & LondonCitySingers on Saturday 26th January 2019
With their trademark harmonious music, classic choreography and clever lyrics, two of the UK’s award-winning Barbershop choruses will revive infamous tunes as well as presenting toe-tapping new arrangements of modern songs.
All-male barbershop sensations The Cottontown Chorus are well known for their iconic arrangements and inventive four-part harmonies. They are British Barbershop Chorus Champions, having won the title seven times (most recently in May 2018). Their repertoire spans from the great American songbook to classic 60s rock; from James Bond to Miley Cyrus and Justin Timberlake; and from high-octane exuberance to romantic ballads. They are welcomed back to the festival after their memorable performance in 2012.
