Amersham A Capella in Concert
With interludes by guitarist Mark Dangerfield
Sunday 16th April at 4.00 pm
AMERSHAM A CAPPELLA (www.amershamacappella.com) is a highly entertaining and dynamic, all-female chorus which sings in 4 to 8 part a cappella (unaccompanied) harmony. Although based in Amersham, the chorus draws its members from all over the Home Counties and this year is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its formation under the name Chiltern Harmony.
Silver Medallists and winners of the LABBS Performance and Music category trophies, under the direction of their talented and highly enthusiastic Musical Director, Helen Lappert, they have previously been both UK and European Champions.
Amersham A Cappella’s style is different from that of a traditional classical choir and includes movement, facial expression and choreography. Their greatest love is performing in front of live audiences sharing the happiness and euphoria that they derive from singing: whether that is at large, national and regional competitions or small private and corporate functions, community and local charity events. Watching them in action is guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face!
They are delighted to be taking part for the first time in the Amersham Festival of Music and will be performing a varied programme of
popular and entertaining songs.
Tickets: £12, Students free
