ViPs formed in the summer of 2013 and have brought the sound of glorious four-part harmony a cappella singing to Suffolk. Gaynor Schofield, an established master-director of the national champion ladies chorus, Viva Acappella, started the group by looking for men who loved to sing but who maybe hadn’t found the right opportunities previously. From a six-week training course was born the ViPs. They were accepted into the British Association of Barbershop Singers a short while later – a move which will see them join the very best British barbershop groups in Harrogate this coming May.
