Hailing from the hitherto uncharted territory known only in our vulgar tongue as "Girton College", Theo makes the epic journey to Fitz to sing Tenor for the Barbers. Theo is now singing with the group for the second year and produces notes so beautiful that he is always a favourite with the ladies. As a Russian student, some of his inspirations include Kim Philby (Trinity, 1930-1933), Black Bears, and the finest Siberian Vodka. Having no recorded existence before last year, Theo is something of a mystery, and some of his habits (speaking into his watch, breaking into university buildings at night), can seem a little strange, but he has become a Barber stalwart, and we wouldn't turn him in ‘ahem’ give him up, sorry, for the world.
The Right Honourable Lord Reverend Dr Sir Adam Fyfe (MBE, OBE, BNOC). This is Adam Fyfe. Yes, the Adam Fyfe. Sure, he’s willing to pose for the paparazzi every now and again, but don’t cross him. I’ve heard his improvised solos are actually lethal… In his spare time, you can catch him knitting jumpers for his adoring fans and writing psalms inspired by the James Bond theme. He isn’t on the Fitz piano key list (sad reacts only). Adam is a third-year classicist at Fitz and adds class and sophistication to this year’s barbershop line-up.
This Trinity Hall singing tenor, or "Mr steal your girl" as he is often known, has a reputation around the Cambridge May ball scene of serenading pretty much anything that moves. Legend has it that his smile distracted the captain of the Titanic on that dreadful night in 1912, and that he feels the never-ending need to fill every silence with "My Evaline", something that has really backfired for him during Trinity hall chapel services. Now in his third year of a Geography degree, colouring pencils blunting, Ben looks to the future in his last year with the group and his enthusiasm and endless charm will be extremely missed by us and ball guests alike.
Jake and the Cambridge acapella scene have morphed together quite like the British colonising Australia - quite literally a perfect match. He is the longest serving member of the Barbershop and is a shining light for the newer members (not a reference to his hair I promise). He possesses one of the most enviable voices around that sounds amazing in every genre so listen out for his beautifully crafted high notes and remember that he is reading all the music upside down, at least from his Australian perspective.
Tennessee sent us the most beautiful gift when they sent over Craig on a free transfer. Despite a hefty signing-on-fee Craig has proved his worth doubling as both an excellent lead and makeshift Bass when called upon. We are struggling to agree on the correct vowel sounds and the spelling of certain words but music breaks down all barriers right? He is meant to be jetting back over the Atlantic at the end of the season but with Trump still in power we may be able to persuade him to stay...PLEASE
