About Main Street Sound, York Ladies Barbershop Chorus.

Main Street Sound was founded in 1996 and now has almost  50 female members with ages ranging approximately from 15 – 80+, singing 4 part harmony (unaccompanied).

We entered the annual Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS) convention for the first time in 2003.  By 2007 we achieved 12th position against approximately 30 other competing chorus clubs and in 2012 we were proud to move to become a Division 1, Category B chorus!   We have competed in Convention most years since then as well as competing in the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers Convention in Calpe, Spain in 2016.  A second visit to the Spanish Convention in 2017 resulted in our highest ever score!  We couldn’t keep away and in 2018 made our third consecutive visit!

We are looking forward to competing at the LABBS Convention in Harrogate in October 2018
