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. 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.

Join us in 2019 as the Chorus performs on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN!

2019 Participation Information

We believe in offering both a single gender experience for men and women, as well as mixed experiences.*

The All Chapter Chorus at the Midwinter Convention is open to all men, including those in the Nashville area, singing in the quartet contest, men in the senior’s chorus festival, guys in the youth festival, and your son, brother, or dad who has never tried barbershop. If you would like to sing in a BIG group with other guys, this group is for you!

We welcome you join our All Chapter Chorus if:

  • You are a male
  • You have a Midwinter All Events registration
  • You purchased your music and tracks ahead of time (no sharing)
  • You learn all songs and have them memorized before Midwinter
  • You attend one or both of the Thursday and Friday night rehearsals
  • You attend the Saturday night dress rehearsal
  • You wear the required clothing for the Saturday night show


*If you are looking for a mixed singing opportunity, consider joining our Everyone In Harmony Chorus at the International Convention! We also offer mixed and single gender experiences at Harmony University - Belmont.

Music Expectations

The All Chapter Chorus is for guys 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!

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

Meet the Director

Greg Clancy is director of The Vocal Majority chorus, the most decorated chorus in the history of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Greg has served as Vocal Majority’s Tenor section leader, Lead leader, Assistant Director, Associate Director, Creative Director and now Musical Director.

He sang tenor in “Class of the 80’s,” “Gatsby,” and filling-in with “Dealer’s Choice,” among others. But everybody’s favorite is “Max Q,” which took the very top Barbershop Harmony Society Quartet Championship honor in 2007.

Meanwhile, Greg has continued to share his skills to personally inspire others, even direct competitors such as the Ambassadors of Harmony, Masters of Harmony, Toronto Northern Lights, and Chicago’s Northbrook Chorus, to reach for their goals and dreams.

He has been a first-call studio vocalist, jingle singer and composer of image music for some 25 years. He is now GM/VP Creative for TM Studios, the world’s most preeminent radio music production house. At TM, a division of WestwoodOne, Greg composes imaging music for stations around the country including KABC in Los Angeles, WMAL in Washington, D.C. and WLS in Chicago.
