Cork Convention 2018 - lOOK WHO'S COMING TO CORK! THE WHITE ROSETTES
We are so excited to tell everyone that The White Rosettes will be featuring at IABS Convention this year.
A Leeds-based female barbershop chorus that are current European Ladies' Barbershop Champions and have won the LABBS Chorus Championship an unprecedented 15 times, and successfully defended their European title in Holland in March 2013.
Under the direction of Sally McLean, the White Rosettes aim to push the boundaries of technical excellence, musicality and performance, and do this by entering prestigious national and international competitions and performing both locally and further afield. The chorus sings a range of styles, from strict barbershop, to jazz, gospel and show classics.
Formed in 1977 under the direction of Clive Landey, the chorus still rehearses weekly and welcomes visitors and prospective new members. The 67-strong chorus is supported by a hard-working and inspirational Music and Presentation Team and an organisational Committee. The chorus' success is particularly remarkable as the majority of the singers have no musical training.
