About the quartet

Quorus are based in the Nottingham area and perform at weddings, funerals, Care Homes and other private functions.

The group originally formed as a semi-chorus of The Saturday Singers in order to perform as a functioning ‘a cappella’ quartet.

A standard performances lasts around one hour, including a short break

They are currently:

  • Phillip Burley, Baritone
  • Andre Francis, Tenor
  • Nev Hamilton, Bass
  • Wendy Smith, Alto (who took over from Alison Rawlins - shown in many photos, who was with us for around 5 years).

We are currently not performing in accordance with government lockdown and/or other restrictions, but hope to re-assemble as soon as we can, and begin rehearsals with our new alto, Wendy.

The quartet has collaborated or performed with various groups over the years we have been formed. These are listed:

  • The Saturday Singers. Their concerts always include a spot where we perform either two or three songs.
  • The Pye Hill and District Male Voice Choir. We had a guest spot at one their concerts in 2017 where we performed three songs.
  • Sempre. We had a split concert with this all-female group, each of us performing two sets.
