Who are the White Rosettes?

The White Rosettes are a Leeds-based female barbershop chorus. In October 2017 they won the LABBS National Ladies Chorus Championship for an unprecedented 16th time! They were also delighted to  successfully retain their title as European Champions for the third time in a row – also a result without precedent.

Under the direction of Sally McLean, The White Rosettes aim to push the boundaries of technical excellence, musicality and performance, and achieve this by entering prestigious national and international competitions and performing both in the UK and mainland Europe.  The chorus sings a range of styles, from strict barbershop, to jazz, gospel and show classics.

Happy World Singing Day! October normally looks very different for barbershoppers. Final rehearsals and performances are crammed in ahead of LABBS and we're all excited for the best weekend of the year. But for now, let's keep those vocalzones handy and just keep singing. 🎼🎵🎶 #worldsingingday

If you didn't tune in last night to Irish Association of Barbershop Singers Un-Convention you can watch again. A great evening of entertainment and lovely to reminisce about our trip to Cork in 2018
