Our Education


Solent Sounds Chorus has regular educational opportunities through being a part of the Sweet Adelines International organisation.

In addition to these, we have our own educational coaches that the Chorus fund.

Lorraine Rochefort, who sings with the ‘Spirit of the Gulf’ Chorus from Region 9 and is a fabulous Coach and Music Arranger, has travelled from America every February to coach our Chorus for the past 4 years. Lorraine always leaves us even more motivated and enthusiastic to continue to improve our skills.

We are also fortunate enough to have Pat Bentley come and coach us. Pat lives much more locally and is another dynamic and inspirational coach with a wealth of Barbershop Showmanship and experience.
