We were delighted to welcome Thomas Spencer, the British tenor, to our rehearsal last Thursday.
This is what he said about us on FB:
“What an unforgettable experience to meet the Junction 14 Ladies A Cappella! Your kindness, energy, music and laughter is totally infectious. You are all ‘on it’ with knowing your technical exercises! Thank you one and all for allowing me to sing with you, for you, and for being great sports in learning a chorus from one of the songs. I’m glad ‘The Journey’ brought me to you and this could be the start of a beautiful friendship!”

We’ve had a lot of really good feedback about our show at Stantonbury Theatre on 10th June.
Comments we’ve received from audience members:
Comments from some of our members:
“I was blown away on Saturday. I knew it was a tall order for me to be able to join the chorus and learn the set but I can’t believe we all did it and sounded so amazing! The buzz has stayed with me… even with another busy work week! I told a few people and had 10 people in the audience and they were all astounded by our performance!
Ladies, we were amazing! The organisation for show, the set choice with the variety songs, the costumes, the choreography, our professionalism and stage presences.
I want to say thank you to all of you and concur with a lot of the comments we have had this week – Hannah’s direction, the music team’s support, the dedication of the teams, perseverance of choreography, costumes and makeup coming together. I know for a fact (and experience) to pull an event like this together takes work and a dedicated team and heaps of preparation. So thank you for the music, we can do anything and I think I have given some part of my heart to you….
There are also the roles that are behind the scenes – making sure that the website is up to date has the music for us to download, ticking us off as we come to practise, collecting monies, logistics of getting risers to and from events, offering lifts, thinking about being mindful before the performance, bring the right brush to add sparkles of glitter on us…. and personally the squeeze on the arm asking if I was okay…
I was delighted to be part of the event proud to stand among you and I am truly hooked!
