Green Street Blues are a welcoming ladies a cappella choir, currently about 35 members strong who rehearse in Sevenoaks, Kent. We have a new Music Director, Victoria Stanyon, who joined us towards the end of 2019 and we have been making plans with Victoria for a very exciting new programme of learning and events for 2020. More news on this to follow….to read more about Victoria click here.
We rehearse on Tuesday evenings moving songs in and out of our repertoire on a regular basis and compete in local and national competitions as well as singing at public or private events. Our chorus repertoire is wide ranging; modern, show-tunes, ‘the Great American Songbook’ and pop. Approximately half of our repertoire is sung in a specific “barbershop style”. The chorus regularly sing in local and national festivals and competitions and also public performances for charity or fundraisers and in the occasional pub – as we are girls who enjoy singing together! All our songs are sung in 4 part harmony which means there is a voice part to suit everyone. Anyone is welcome to join GSB whether or not they have previously sung any a cappella (singing without backing instruments). Many girls who join won’t have sung in a structured group since school but finally decide that singing along to the radio or on nights out is not enough! Choruses are fantastic communities and singing is good for your physical and mental health. As we learn songs with the help of teach tracks as well as sheet music it doesn’t matter whether you can’t read sheet music – many of our valuable members learn via the tapes and the excellent coaching available within the group.
Anybody is welcome to come and listen into a rehearsal to get a flavour of what goes on behind-the-scenes to produce the unique and mesmerising sound of close harmony singing, so why not join us for a rehearsal evening? We rehearse every Tuesday night from 7.45pm – 10.30pm at The Drive Methodist Church TN13 3AE just email us to let us know to expect you.
We’re also for hire! If you’re looking for a unique and awe-inspiring performance for any occasion, whether the full chorus or a smaller group, feel free to get in touch. We are able to put together a programme from our repertoire to suit the needs for your special event.
