Vocal performance coach extraordinaire Mo Field came to visit GEM recently, to work with us on a new song for our repertoire. Mo is a veritable legend in the barbershop world (and far beyond) and took us on a fascinating journey with a new approach to performance for GEM.

The biggest bonus of doing what we do is connecting with our audience, and taking them on a journey through a song. We work very hard as a pretty sizeable ensemble to infuse everything we sing with meaning, emotion and depth - and when it's clear the audience are feeling it too, the rewards for us as performers are phenomenal.

Mo's coaching took us all through a journey itself, fusing technical physical details about voice placement, power, breathing and stance with some intense, emotional storytelling to give the song so much life.

Thanks Mo - we hope we do you proud when we get to deliver the song - if you want to see the fruits of our labours, make sure you come along to our show in November!
