Amersham A Cappella is an engaging, dynamic ladies chorus which sings in four-to-eight part a cappella harmony. Members range in age from 25 to 70-plus, and come from every walk of life, but with a common aim: to create sensational performances while having an enormous amount of fun, and to spread that joy to every member of our audience.
The chorus was founded in 1982 as Chiltern Harmony under the direction of Ian Stone and won several accolades including the Gold Medal at the Annual Convention of the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS) in 1994 and Sainsbury's Choir of the Year in 1996.
When Helen Lappert became Musical Director in 2005 the choir consisted of 23 members. In 2008, Chiltern Harmony was renamed Amersham A Cappella and now has more than 70 members performing an exciting and varied repertoire of both Barbershop and contemporary a cappella arrangements. Under Helen's expert musical direction we have gone on to win many more national and international awards, year after year.
As well as taking part in competitions, Amersham A Cappella is a popular and enthusiastic participant in many community and charity events. And, you can also hire us to perform at your wedding, birthday, corporate event or other special event too.
