Cheshire A Cappella is a group of women of all ages and walks of life with one thing in common - we love to sing! We derive a huge amount of joy from singing together every week, working to practise and extend our repertoire of songs and improve our vocal and performance skills, and then going out to perform to a variety of different audiences. We are strictly an amateur chorus; most of us have never had singing lessons and many of us can't read music, but we work together in a supportive environment to achieve the best we can and have loads of fun along the way.

We're always delighted to welcome new members. If you enjoy singing and would like to give us a try, find out more here.
We love getting out into the community and performing to an audience! If you are planning a function or event which would be enhanced by some four-part harmony entertainment please contact us.
Seasons of Love
We are delighted and proud to present our virtual choir performance of Seasons of Love, a beautiful song from the hit Broadway musical Rent.
We commissioned this four-part harmony arrangement of the song in memory of our dear friend Helen Reid, formerly a member of our bass section who died in 2018.
We learned the song in early 2020. Then lockdown happened and we haven't been able to sing together since, so we decided to create this recording of our special song. Each member submitted their own separate recording and they were all merged together to produce a single performance.
Many thanks to our director Kate for the hours and hours of editing to produce the final result, and to Liz Garnett for arranging the song so beautifully for us.
The recording was also our contribution to the LABBS Big Weekend, which took place in October 2020.
Like everyone else we are affected by the Covid-19 outbreak and are currently unable to rehearse together. However we are using technology to continue to meet online and find different ways to keep rehearsing. We have retained our Wednesday evening rehearsal slot and are using the Zoom platform to have some time when we can all see each other, chat and do some singing 'separately but together'. There's a limit to how much work we can do on vocal technique and our group performance, but we've worked on several new songs since the start of lockdown and are looking forward to the day we can sing them all together. It's going to be a while, though, so in the meantime the most important thing is that we can have time to see each other every week and maintain the togetherness that is such an important part of what we do.
