A Chance to Hear Vocal Fusion Acapella Chorus next week

Based in Steyning West Sussex, male voice Chorus ‘Vocal Fusion Acapella’ perform a varied acapella repertoire embracing the styles of American song, swing, jazz, and secular music, and arranged in four-part close harmony.

The Chorus started its life in October 2015, when Zoe Peate, their Musical Director, together with three experienced singers, decided to set up their own Chorus and bring together a group of singers who not only shared their musical values but most importantly wanted to perform and entertain an audience to the highest standard possible.

Vocal Fusion Acapella – now with 20  singers, drawn from all parts of Sussex – are passionate about their singing, and about using their voices to make great harmony, fabulous “ringing” chords, and making the music come “alive” for their audience

The Chorus’ fabulous Repertoire currently encompasses a broad range of Great 20th Century American Classics, including “Stepping Out With My Baby,”  “Tonight Tonight,”  “The Way you Look Tonight,” “The Nearness of You,” “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love Baby” ”If I had my Way”  through Spirituals like ”Deep River” to more modern pieces performed by singers like Billy Joel, “The Longest Time,” The Beatles “Blackbird”  &  “In my Life” and Queen “Crazy Little thing called Love”

Zoe Peate explained: “Whilst we have steadily grown in numbers, and put together an exciting repertoire of music, good performances are only ever achieved through a mixture of hard work, regular rehearsal, vocal coaching, and a willingness to entertain an audience.   We always welcome new singers who share our love for these styles of music, and who are prepared to put in the work necessary to perform at a high standard.”

If you would like to hear Vocal Fusion perform their latest pieces, including -“Love Me or Leave Me” and “My Romance”, together with other favourites, or have an interest in joining this excellent Acapella Chorus, please come along to The Methodist Church, High Street, Steyning, West Sussex BN44 3GG on Wednesday 16 May at 8.15pm.
