Ambassadors mark 40 years

The local men’s Barbershop Chorus – the Royal City Ambassadors – is looking for new members and invites men of all ages from Guelph and the surrounding communities to give barber­shop singing a try.

For 40 years, the Ambas­sadors have been entertaining audiences throughout the com­munity. Singing in a cappella four-part harmony, the chorus sings a wide range of music, from old standards and Christ­mas music to songs by The Beatles and The Beach Boys.

In celebration of their 40th year, the Ambassadors are look­ing to expand the chorus.

“It would be great if we had 40 new members for our 40th year” said Ron Brown, presi­dent of the Ambassadors.  He noted musical experience is an asset but not required. “Very few of us had musical experi­ence; you just need to enjoy singing and having a good time.”

The Ambassadors practice every Tuesday evening and invite anyone to come out. Anyone interested in knowing more can call Ron Brown at 519-823-0779 or Ross Kirkconnell, at 519-836-0577.
