    The venue for our first rehearsal of 2022 will be the Comanche Wells Community Center, 775 W Roger Road on Monday, February 14th, 5-7PM.  Please relearn the four songs chosen by the Music/Performance Team (see below) and, because it is Valentines Day, go over our Singing Valentines songs "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" and "Heart of My Heart".  If the weather is good we may stroll around the neighborhood singing after rehearsal.  It is bring-your-own-food-and-drink; the kitchen will not be open.


    VP of Music Ken Sylvia hosted a meeting of the Music/Performance Team on Jan 20 to discuss plans for reopening the Chapter.  Those members who wish to participate are asked to review the following four songs, using the learning tracks on our website and their own files.  New singers should contact Frank Hartline for gaining access to sheet music and learning tracks.

    Mam'selle
    Hallelujah
    Swing Down Chariot
    America the Beautiful

    Mike Vo named 2018 Barbershopper of the Year


    Director Mike Vo was awarded 2018 Barbershopper of the Year honors at the annual Chapter banquet January 13th.  Mike was selected unanimously by previous BOTY winners that are still active in the Chapter.  The award goes to that person in the Chapter that contributes most to the success of the organization.  He stepped up to direct the chorus, attend Harmony University Director College, and write the scripts for both our Christmas and 2019 Annual Shows.  He was instrumental in getting rehearsal space in St Demetrios Church - significantly reducing costs to the chapter.  Congratulations Mike.
