Shannon Express is one of the Eastern Region’s leading male a cappella chorus groups. We sing as a chorus in four parts – bass, lead, tenor and baritone, in what originated as the barbershop singing style. Nowadays it is often referred to as four-part close harmony. The days of striped waistcoats and straw boaters have long gone, apart from odd bouts of nostalgia! Our music is slick, harmonious and thoroughly entertaining – both for us and for our audiences.
We meet every Thursday at Stratton Upper School, Biggleswade, to rehearse our rich and varied repertoire encompassing the roots of barbershop music, entertaining lullabies and stirring upbeat numbers. Timeless classics, hits from the musical theatre and modern standards all have their place.
