There is something really magical about a male voice choir at full tilt. As you will appreciate from our website, although we are unpaid and are in essence a club. We take our hobby of singing extremely seriously, after all we are a competing chorus. Regardless of what the event or what the style of performance, we perform to the highest possible standard.
The basis is our love of singing to a high standard.
What to expect when booking the Cottontown Chorus
With the Cottontown chorus, you have options, depending on your event. Our repertoire is varied and spans from classic to more modern arrangements. The duration of a set is normally about 20 minutes, we can do single sets or double sets but it really depends on your event. We don’t sing from sheet music, everything we perform is learned to the highest standard. You and your audience will be blown away by the quality and level of professionalism of the Cottontown chorus. By default we wear uniformed formal dinner jackets… We are ready to go!
We travel well with our own risers (These are the ‘steps’ we stand on), our bookings manager will talk you through our requirements in terms of space needed. This sounds daunting but it is not. We deal with all the logistics ourselves. You just need to provide the space. We have no requirement for electricity or specific acoustics. We let our voices and relentless rehearsing provide the sound.
Rehearsing and Getting Changed
Due to the level of professionalism we apply to every instance that we sing together, we do require ample (as much as possible!) space to be able to warm up our voices and run through your set list, so we know we are ready. We are happy to use the same space to get changed. Again our bookings manager will talk you through this, we are flexible and can manage in most circumstances.
Everything depends on you
Our ‘sing outs’ as we call them are tailored to you and your event. So the type of performance you require will suit everything from a wedding, birthday, product launch, awards, after dinner entertainment, ceremony or swanky garden party. We just love singing and prefer to bring as much of the chorus to sing with. However if your event is only small then we have high quality quartets that can equally entertain. However they are no match to the full force of the Cottontown Chorus.
Why not take a look around the website, listen and watch what we are about. We also have a healthy and growing Facebook community, where you will see more content and get an even better idea of what people think of their experience of the chorus.
You would think being a barbershop chorus we are a bit, stuffy and straw hat? Whilst the singing techniques and direction from our superb Musical Director and his music team have propelled the chorus to its current standing as the leading Barbershop Chorus in the UK. We still have a varied repertoire which includes:
- Brother Can you Spare a Dime
- Put Your Arms Around Me Honey
- Blue Skies
- Come on get happy
As well as
- Man in the Mirror
- Two out of Three Ain’t Bad
- Meatloaf Medley
- Go the distance
- Fat Bottomed Girls!
What it costs
We have reasonable rates and it does depend on your budget. To move our risers costs money and our aim for singing out is to entertain and fund raise for costumes, travel expenses (to national and international conventions) and to ensure the legacy of the Cottontown chorus remains.
