On That Note a capella Choir’ – Director Gabriel Chernick
On That Note is a north London ‘a cappella’ choir that has become well-known at festivals and fiestas around the London area for its performances of highbrow, lowbrow and eyebrow-raisingly good versions of classical music, jazz and popular tunes.
The choir was formed in 2015 from Guildhall Professor Scott Stroman’s renowned multi-stylistic choir, Eclectic Voices. On That Note is itself also eclectic; its 13 singers
are from a wide range of professions and include a cabinet maker, a child psychotherapist and a copyright lawyer. Some members are from formal musical backgrounds, having studied at institutions such as the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the University of Cambridge and the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. Whatever their background, all members are united in their deep love of communal singing.
Their repertoire is diverse, spans music of seven centuries and is complemented by their own original arrangements. They meet each week under the guidance of the young award-winning film composer, arranger, producer, jazz pianist and conductor Gabriel Chernick.
Gabriel studied music at Cambridge and screen composition at the National Film and
Television School. From an early age he rapidly established a reputation for himself as a skilled and versatile composer and in August 2014 his soundtrack for David K Barnes’ adaptation of Games of Love and Chance was awarded a special commendation for original music at the Edinburgh Festival National Student Drama Festival Awards.
On That Note are now in much demand and they are currently working towards their first professional recording.
