Welcome to The VIPs
We were amazed at the number of folk who braved the elements last Saturday to listen to our music at St Matthew's Church in Ipswich. Sadly the Quartet, Reunion, decided very wisely not to make the journey, (2 hours in good conditions) but our other guests did a grand job of filling the empty space.
We shall have a report and photos soon.
We are Suffolk's male Barbershop chorus singing close harmony acappella arrangements of popular music. The VIPs meet every week to rehearse and we like to compete in the annual National Barbershop Convention at the end of May, as well as performing at occasional events across the county.
Now in our fifth year, our 14 man chorus is looking to recruit a few more men to swell the ranks, and the sound. So, if you think you might like to sing with us, check out our Contacts Page. We would love to hear from you – but men only I’m afraid. Sorry, Ladies!
BABS Convention - Bournemouth May 2017
As one of the smallest choruses in the competition, we weren't expecting miracles. So we were quite pleased with a performance that left us 10 places above the least able groups. We shall now know what we need to do to improve our sound, and hence the enjoyment of our audiences.
The VIPs — ready to sing at Bournemouth Convention May 2017
More recently, we sang at The Christmas Market in Ipswich on 9th December. Details and more photos of this and our other concerts and private functions can be found on our VIP Events page.
The VIPs — in the cold, hiding from Grandma’s beady eye!
