The Guildford Barbershop Harmony Club (AKA Surrey Fringe), is one of the first Barbershop Clubs to be formed in the UK. and has been running for nearly 40 years
The Surrey Fringe is a group of male four-part harmony singers. We teach people to sing, we perform at public and private functions, and participate in local music festivals. We have competed at the BABS convention, though this is not a current priority.
The chorus is about forty strong but we are always looking for new members. So if you are thinking of joining a Chorus, do try our very successful "Come and Sing" 7 week course or just pop along to a rehearsal session.
We meet on Tuesday evenings in Guildford, 7:45 – 10:00. Our main focus here is singing for enjoyment. However, we are also keen to improve our range and technique under the leadership of our Chorus Director, Section Leaders and a number of guest educators.
Support for local charities is another of our priorities. Each year the members nominate a charity or charities to receive surplus funds from our Concerts and ‘singouts’.
