All Chapter Chorus

About the Chorus

The All Chapter Chorus meets annually at the Midwinter Convention. All 100-200 members prepare their music in advance, ensuring a once-in-a-lifetime mountaintop barbershop experience for all involved.

The All Chapter Chorus is for those who want to prepare medium level difficulty music, and be rehearsed by a gold medal director at the A level.

With three 90-minute rehearsals during the Convention, the All Chapter Chorus opens the Saturday Night Show to a spectacular audience in an electrifying environment.

Music Expectations

The All Chapter Chorus is for those who want to prepare medium level difficulty music, and be rehearsed by a gold medal director at the A level.

Show up to our first rehearsal on Thursday knowing all charts at a section leader level or quartet singer level, NOT holding music on the risers, but having it ready to check now and then if you need to visually check your music. You don’t have to have a gold medal voice, but you do need to prepare like a champion!

We will perform a two song tribute to our BHS 1961 quartet champions from Florida, The Suntones:

  • Chordbusters March
  • Where is Love?

Upon registering, participants will receive the music and learning tracks digitally.

The cost to participate is $15 - $45. Please contact harmonyu@barbershop.org with questions, comments, or concerns.
