What Are the Odds??



What are the odds of two unrelated young ladies of similar age with identical height, build, hair style and colour – both singing Tenor in different barbershop choruses not too many miles away from each other?   Caroline Bamford from Bristol Fashion and Hannah Richmond from Fascinating Rhythm met for the first time at our 20th Anniversary Celebration Show.  Like looking in a mirror, from spectacles even down to the same style handbag.  We think this must come under the heading of weird … and quite wonderful!

Farewell to Rangeworthy – FR’s on the move!

From Thursday, 2nd April 2015, our new home will be The Greenfield Centre in Winterbourne, South Gloucestershire.  We’ve loved being at King George V Community Centre in Rangeworthy which has seen us rise through our National Competition rankings from 22nd to our current 7th place but with the expansion of the Chorus to nearly 60 members, we find we’ve outgrown the space available.  So, our thanks go to our old home which holds some great memories – and we look forward to continuing enjoying this amazing hobby of ours at Greenfield.

Delighted to entertain…

Fascinating Rhythm were thrilled to be invited to entertain at the Annual Civic Service reception for dignitaries of the South West local authorities and guests.
The event was held by Councillor Howard Gawler who stated in his speech how proud he was to know the chorus and thanked Fascinating Rhythm for such a fabulous show.

Never to miss an opportunity we requested that some photographs be taken, not quite expecting that we would have them taking part in a choreographed move – look out we mayFR have a new front row!



Listen to the Music – our new CD!

We’ve recently recorded a CD of our favourite performance songs including Ain’t no Mountain, You Don’t Know Me, And So It Goes and the title track, Listen to the Music. Recorded over a weekend under the watchful production eye (and ear) of Pete Nugent, we had great fun standing behind the mic and being stars for a day. Watch this space for news of our release date!
