Sally McLean achieves record clean sweep at European Barbershop Convention

The weekend of 26th - 30th October saw the 3rd European Barbershop Convention come to Bournemouth, UK. It was held in conjunction with the annual Ladies' Association of British Barbershop Singers convention at the Bournemouth International Centre.

A number of contests were held which featured choruses and quartets from across the UK and Europe. Spirit of Harmony's Musical Director, Sally McLean, entered 4 of these competitions, and came away with 4 Gold Medals:

  • LABBS National Chorus Gold with The White Rosettes - their 16th gold medal
  • LABBS National Quartet Gold with SoundHouse
  • European Chorus Gold with The White Rosettes - their third in a row
  • European Quartet Gold with SoundHouse

This was an unprecedented 'clean sweep' for Sally, and we're incredibly proud of her.

Spirit of Harmony will be singing on a show with newly-crowned European Champions The White Rosettes and SoundHouse on 9th December in Harrogate - tickets available below.
