We started singing together in January 2019. Lyrical was the brain child of Philip Mitchell and Trent Harris, who between them decided to create a small compact group of talented local singers, musicians and friends who just love singing together in four part close harmony.
The overall philosophy of the group is not to be restricted to any one particular genre of music, which will be evident from our concert programmes. There is, however, one overriding requirement - the music must be beautiful and must appeal to a broad spectrum of musical tastes.
We hope that you will enjoy our concerts, and look forward to seeing you throughout the year at various venues.
Philip Mitchell - Musical Director
A classically trained pianist, Philip began his music career in the 1970's switching to keyboards and playing in pop bands throughout the south of England. He regularly played cabaret, backing acts as diverse as 'questionable' drag artistes in seedy nightclubs to accomanying Elkie Brooks!
In 1979 he secured a position aboard the QE2 before realising he suffered intolerable sea-sickness! After retiring to Spain in 2005 his spare time has been happily filled accompanying many choirs and solo artists.
