Octets

You might think an octet should have eight members but, in reality, that doesn’t always happen. A small group needs at least one voice from each of the sections but does not need equal numbers in each section. The octet was formed in June 2012 with the objective of creating a group that can perform separately at sing-outs, giving chorus members the special skills required to sing in a smaller group.

The Red Rose Chorus currently has one quartet and one octet. The members of these smaller groups are also members of the main chorus. They arrange extra practices and often perform without the main chorus.

If you wish to book the New Tricks octet, contact us using the form on the Contact page.
