“A Blend of Harmonies”
Do you want to leave a concert humming a tune?
Then come and listen to Chameleon
Derby A Cappella
blend their harmonies and perform toe-tapping medleys.
From Chameleon, enjoy highlights of the award winning musical ‘Les Miserables’ and songs from the comedy production of ‘Spamalot’.
Derby A Cappella will take you back in time with barbershop-style settings of various Beatles songs and that true barbershop classic, ‘Hello Mary Lou’. An evening of true musical variety.
Chameleon Choir …
The choir was formed in 2011, the brainchild of Ray Taylor who had lived in Ashbourne for many years. The name ‘Chameleon‘ chosen by Ray is due to the eclectic styles of music which the choir sings – that ethos still continues today under the guidance of Sue Tansey who took up the baton when Ray returned to the north.
Last summer the choir took a step out of its comfort zone by holding a very successful workshop as part of the Ashbourne Festival. Over 80 singers joined the workshop led by Jonathon Willcocks, in which pieces by Willcocks and Rutter were sung at the event.
It is apparently a fact that singing in a choir is equal to a good yoga workout: in terms of breathing technique and a feeling of wellbeing! Whilst doing their weekly workout at Osmaston village hall every Thursday evening, Chameleon rehearse for concerts, which over the last few years has raised nearly £2,500 for charities such as A.C.E, the Y.M.C.A. and the Brailsford Group of five churches.
Chameleon are always keen to welcome new members into their midst and if you feel you would like to join the choir for an evening of fun while singing beautiful music, then pop along to Osmaston Village Hall on Thursday at 7:45pm to any of our rehearsals, where a warm welcome will be guaranteed, followed by a sociable chat in the local pub!
