Also known as Bromley Ladies Barbershop Singers, Velvet Harmony is a ladies four-part harmony Barbershop Chorus. The sections are named as in male Barbershop groups:
- Tenors – similar to soprano in terms of range, with harmony above Lead
- Lead – sings the melody and the largest section of the Chorus
- Baritone – similar to mezzo soprano in range, often with the quirkiest harmony dipping above and below Lead
- Bass – lower than typical alto range, most well-known for the “bah dhm” notes below the others
We welcome new members so come along on Tuesday evenings to listen or join in. We take our music seriously but have lots of fun as well!
“I joined Velvet Harmony only a year ago. The last time I did any singing, I was at school but as a newcomer to the group I was made to feel very welcome – everyone is so friendly and supportive. I really look forward to our weekly rehearsals” Sandy
“I joined Velvet Harmony in Bromley as I was looking for a local singing group. I was very impressed by the standard of singing and was soon helped by another member in my section. After a year and a half I am proud to have been part of many concerts and events in the local community.” Emma
