And the newly-formed group is looking for new recruits and sponsorship so it can
increase the amount of concerts that it performs.
The first show will be at a charity concert and disco for the Children's Liver Disease
The chorus was asked to take part in the concert by Earlsdon grandfather Iain James,
whose grandson Oliver suffers from liver disease.
Chorus organiser Judith Beaver said:
"We are hoping that some of our new members will be confident enough to sing with
the chorus at this event."
She added that the group has entered two competitions: the Nuneaton Festival on 6 May,
Leamington Festival on 24 June.
It is also due to take part in the Millennium Music Live International Street Festival
sponsored by the BBC on 29 May.
The chorus will do two 20-minute slots in a day of music organised around the city
centre by Coventry City Council.
"Barbershop Harmony Singing is a great hobby and it is supported by a national
organisation, which we hope to join next year when we have established ourselves.
"There is an opportunity each year to compete against Ladies Barbershop Choruses
from all over Britain and the event spans a weekend of fun and friendship.
"Experts in the association the Ladies Association of Barbershop Singing -
also provide coaching and Silver Lining will qualify for that type of assistance in June
"The chorus is confident it can now take bookings for events and we are anxious to
get some sponsorship to assist us with some start-up expenses.
"We would be pleased to hear from any local companies who would like a joint
beneficial arrangement between us.
"Silver Lining would sing at any promotional events for the Company and promote
their business whenever possible, perhaps by having their business logo on any items of
costume they are able to sponsor or contribute to!"
