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 now have a huge variety of songs and costumes at our disposal, and since 2013 have plumped for comedy at our regianal convention as our comptition package. We never looked back and have a blast on stage evertime!
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).
