Denmead Prom Sing Out

14 July 19

What a great time. The residents of Denmead really know how to stage a party with their Village Prom. on 13th July 2019. Weather was perfect for this outdoor event and fellow performers Denmead Brass were great entertainers in hot conditions. Solent City Chorus gave a very good rendition of many of our favourite repertoire songs to entertain a large crowd of Promenarders. Well done guys you coped with the challenges of outdoor singing and some interesting interventions by the PA system both planned and unplanned. Audience were appreciative and it was a pleasure to perform for them. Amarillo, Can you feel the Love and Shenendoah were particularly popular. Beyond the Sea went down well in the White Hart afterwards ....nearly as well as the Doombar.

Post Convention Celebration

16 June 19

The chorus celebrated their return from BABS Convention with a meal and night out at the Red Lion at Southwick. The competition result may have been disappointing for the chorus but at the night out any locals would have thought we would have won it with the fun, camaraderie and joy the chorus shared. We could not resist singing just to prove how good we are at it. More photos and videos on our Facebook page

Goodbye Roger

13 June 19

Big Thanks to all chorus members who attended Roger's Funeral in chorus suits and shirts (and many former members) on 12th June. St.Judes Church in Southsea was standing room only as family friends, colleagues, patients and parishioners turned out to pay tribute to the much-loved and inspirational man. Rest in peace mate, we will miss you

BABS Convention 2019

27 May 19

It was great to be in Bournemouth competing in BABS Convention again. We all had a great time on Saturday at the chorus finals, at the show and in the bar at the afterglow. We performed our package well and received some very good feedback and it was great for Alex, Felix, Bob, Bob and Mark singing at their first convention. Improved score from last Convention but the same position which was slightly disappointed some but still another step forward as a chorus , great fun and a rewarding experience - which is the most important. See you at the meal on Tuesday. No rehearsal this week .

Its gonna be a great day
