Who are the White Rosettes?

The White Rosettes are a Leeds-based female barbershop chorus. In October 2022 they won the LABBS National Ladies Chorus Championship for an unprecedented 17th time and have been European Ladies’ Barbershop Chorus Champions three times!

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.

The White Rosettes, as LABBS Chorus Champions 2022, will be competing in the Barbershop Harmony Society International Contest in Cleveland, Ohio in July 2024! It is an honour to be the first LABBS chorus to fill the association’s first ever automatic chorus spot in this contest. We are so thankful to LABBS for this amazing opportunity, we hope we will do you proud! Now full steam ahead with the fundraising as we are not leaving any chorus member behind. We are making plans for all sorts of activities and we hope you will come and support us in our endeavours. If you’re not able to attend one of our fundraising events but still wish to support us, please visit our GoFundMe page. No donation is too small!

3 Rosettes went to Nottingham this weekend and what a time they had! 🎵🎶

Fiona, Charlie and Sarah attended the inaugural UK Treble Harmony Brigade, and extreme quartet-ed their hearts out with others from LABBS - the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers, Quartet of Nations Region 31 - Sweet Adelines International, BABS - British Association of Barbershop Singers and the wider international barbershop community!

Some highlights from their adventures included:
🔥 Fiona and Charlie succeeding in singing with everyone in quartet from the other voices parts, becoming Harmony Hotshots!
⭐️ Sarah singing with EVERYONE in quartet, including those who were also singing bari (by learning another part), becoming a Harmony Hyperstar!!
🥇Fiona winning gold on tenor in the scratch quartet contest with Laura (Crystal Chords - Greater Manchester Ladies Barbershop Harmony Chorus), Mel (Blackdown Acapella) and Chantel (Muddy Stilettos)
🌸 Becoming the Pink Rosettes through a group sing with the Red Rosettes Show Chorus contingent (plus some Ruby Tuesday/ Lux visitors)!
❤️ Had a blast making music, making friends and ringing chords!!!!!

If you’re thinking….. "this looks like such fun I wanna give it a go!" The next UK Treble Harmony Brigade is set to be in Nottingham the 25th to 27th of April 2025 (24th for those who want to arrive Thursday)!
