Footlights came into being in 2007 when we all sang with County Connection Chorus in Cambridge. With two baritones something had to change, so Sam switched to lead and a quartet was formed. The early days were interesting, to say the least. It took us a little while to find our feet, and recordings of rehearsals at the beginning still have the power to curdle milk. Happily, with a lot of effort and a great deal of practice, plus support, encouragement and coaching from various brave people we did get better!
We have a huge variety of songs and costumes at our disposal and since 2013, we have plumped for comedy at our regional convention as our competition package. We have never looked back and have a blast on stage everytime!
Singing together has provided us with an enormous amount of fun and three best friends each! Well, actually we do have a 5th member of the quartet. Our original Bass - Barb, moved back home in 2015/16. Sarah became our replacement bass bulb of Footlights, and our journey of fun and laughter continues on!
We love performing (for a very reasonable fee) as there really is little point in learning great songs if nobody ever gets to hear them. After dinner, before dinner, in a supporting role, at parties, weddings, barbeques – whatever your “do”, we’ll sing for you. Contact us via email or phone (Fiona).
Sam, Fiona, Hilary & Sarah
