This year we were delighted to present not just one, but three of our members with LABBS Long Service Awards!

A huge congratulations to these three lovely ladies!

Debi Cox – 25 yearss

Debi is our Musical Director. Originally a singing member of the chorus, Debi became our MD in 2003 and has continued to successfully lead Capital Connection, with the chorus consistently remaining one of the top 10 ladies choruses in the country. Outside of chorus, Debi is very active in LABBS as a music judge and educator and has been Category Director and Head of Education & Judging in recent years.  We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and knowledgeable MD!

Sue Gordon – 35 years

We were delighted to welcome Sue back to the chorus recently, after a break of 3 years. During this time, Sue remained Club At Large and kept up to date with all things barbershop!  Since returning, she has changed voice parts and now sings with our bass section.  As well as being an experienced and knowledgeable member of the chorus, Sue is definitely the person to hang with at Convention if you want to mix and mingle, but be warned – you’ll be up til the early hours!

Seager Banks – 35 years

Seager has been with us for more than 10 years, singing Tenor. She is an active member of the chorus, having previously been a section leader and now member of the PMSC and Performance Team. Prior to singing with us, she was a member of Velvet Harmony Chorus.  Seager is such a dedicated member that she travels all the way from Kent each week to rehearse and is always ready to sign up for sing-outs, despite the distance!
