Crystal Chords were thrilled to have taken part in the LABBS Convention 27-29 Oct 2022, competing alongside 25 choruses from up and down the country, for the first time since 2019. 

Two of our club quartets also competed in the National quartet competition; it was a great start to the weekend as we cheered on Barberlicious & Hat-Trick; how proud we were to see them both qualify for the finals with ease!  

The event was held at Bournemouth International Centre, and the theme of the weekend was "Jubilation". It was a truly jubilant occasion to be able to celebrate with our sisters in harmony, having had various events postponed because of the pandemic.

With only 37 singers on stage, Crystal Chords placed 4th overall, and were delighted to win the trophy for the "Highest Placed Mid-Size Chorus" It was a delight to be able to perform once more, and enjoy a weekend of harmony & friendship.  

Our contest set features 2 songs: a beautiful ballad from Mary Poppins Returns, "The Place Where the Lost Things Go" arranged for our chorus by the talented Sam Hubbard; our second song "Almost There" is from Disney's The Princess and the Frog, aranged by Aaron Dale. Enjoy!
*mid-size: 30-45 singers.
