What repertoire do you perform?
We have a list of some of our repertoire available here.
What facilities do you need?
We like to perform with a properly tuned grand piano but, if an acoustic piano is not available, our accompanist can often bring a suitable electronic piano and amplifier. We can bring our own music stands and other accoutrements.
Do you need a piano accompanist?
We bring our own accompanist, who knows our repertoire well.
What charge do you make?
For charity and non-profit entertainments, we make no charge, apart from our accompanist’s fee and a contribution towards expenses – £120 in all will usually cover it.
Do you have a set format?
No. Usually, we perform for between an hour and an hour and a half. We can suit the programme to our audience.
What sort of music do you perform?
We like tenor and baritone solos from the English Song repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries up to say 1939, but we also sing folk songs, Handel and 17th century drinking songs. We know most of the 19th century tenor and baritone duet repertoire. We have “songs from the shows” of that era, including some opera numbers, G&S, Kern and Gershwin. We’ll even learn arrangements of numbers by special request.
Our repertoire is substantial and eclectic.
