The Abbotskerswell based Chordettes formed in 1974 and are one of the founder clubs in the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS).
In 1992 the chorus won the British Ladies Barbershop Championships and had the privilege of representing Britain in America the following year. More recently in 2011 they became the International Bronze medallists at the International Barbershop Convention which was held in Galway, Ireland.
The Chordettes are made up of a mixed group of ladies, some local to Abbotskerswell where they rehearse every week, some travel from further afield. Always growing and changing; learning new songs, making new friends, having new experiences, adventures and a lot of fun along the way!
Once a year the Chordettes take part in the Ladies Barbershop Convention where thousands meet up to compete, to sing together and to have fun.
