Mark with our ‘Most Improved Chorus’ trophy 2019

Mark has been passionate about music and singing from a very early age and is very definitely hooked on Barbershop!  He is a UK Gold Medallist in the Barbershop community having sung with several different high achieving Quartets and choruses over the years.  He has coached numerous choral groups to Championship level and served as a singing judge in national and international Barbershop competitions.

We are pleased and proud that he is coaching both our female chorus Sussex A Cappella and the male chorus Sussex Kings of Harmony.  Under his direction, the rapid development of the ladies’ chorus has been extraordinary.  He has guided the Sussex Kings of Harmony to achieve a Trophy at national level in the Barbershop community’s 2019 Convention as ‘Most improved Chorus’.

Now, with Mark’s passion for Barbershop driving us forward we are setting our sights on being one of the top 10 choruses in the UK.
