Welcome from the Kingsmen

The Kingsmen Close Harmony Chorus is an enthusiastic group of over fifty men from South West Devon anywhere from Torquay to Plymouth, who love singing together in four-part close-harmony Barbershop style.

The Kingsmen chorus was formed 25 years ago in 1991 by Roy Hann who is the Music Director, Founder and Honorary Life President. We have special cause to celebrate in 2016 as this is our 25th Anniversary year. We are well known throughout the region for our entertaining performances, and we focus on the singing of four part harmony in the barbershop style, straight from the heart.

'Kings of Harmony, Brothers In Song'

With rehearsals every Wednesday evening from 7.30 to 10pm at the Evangelical Church, Fore Street, Kingsbridge, TQ7 1PG we welcome guests and potential new recruits too.
