Sean joined The Royal Harmonics in March 2016, taking the chorus to a fourth place finish at the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS) National Chorus Contest two months later, where the chorus recorded their second highest score to date. In 2017, the Harmonics placed fourth again, this time with their best ever score—only 2.1% behind the winners!
For The Royal Harmonics it’s all about the harmonies, and all about entertainment. At the heart of what they do are the distinctive ringing chords of close harmony singing: lead, bass, baritone and tenor voices coming together to create a rich unified blend. They aim to perform their varied repertoire of songs in innovative ways, often with imaginative staging and interpretations.
Their musical roots are in the barbershop style, and they are members of BABS. The Royal Harmonics are proud to have won the Silver Medal at the BABS national chorus competition in 2008 and 2012, and the Bronze Medal in 2013.
The Royal Harmonics present the best in popular music in their own close harmony, a cappella style. If you’ve a penchant for pop, they’ve great harmony arrangements of songs by Seal, The Eagles, and Guns and Roses to name but a few. If the Great American Songbook is your thing, they bring you songs made famous by the likes of Sinatra and Fitzgerald. Songs from the shows—how about a bit of Andrew Lloyd-Webber—or perhaps something a bit more traditional—they sing a little gospel and folk too, for good measure!
The Royal Harmonics are always looking for new members. If you are interested in finding out more information about this multi-award winning chorus, please visit www.royalharmonics.org.uk.
