Color Country Chorus @ Centennial Park (St. George, UT: September 10, 2012)

Don’t miss the last concert of the year to feature Color Country Chorus in Centennial Park at 301 North 2200 East, St. George on Monday September 10, 2012 at  7:30 PM. Country Chorus is the performance group of the St. George, Utah Chapter of the International Barbershop Harmony Society. 

The international society has been in existence for almost 76 years and is the largest men’s singing organization in the world, with chapters in all states, Canada and numerous foreign countries.  “Barbershop Harmony” is created by four vocal parts: lead (the melody), tenor, baritone and bass.  Barbershop quartets and choruses always sing a capella – without instrumental accompaniment and without referring to printed musical scores.  Barbershop music is typically light-hearted, up-beat, sometimes sentimental and often patriotic.  You may have noticed that barbershop singers enjoy their performances. 

Color Country Chorus has been part of the St. George musical scene for over 28 years.  The chorus is open to all men of good cheer who love to sing, with members ranging in age from teenagers to eighty-year olds.  The chorus performs many times throughout the year.  The Annual Show has become an important event in local musical circles.  The chorus members also enjoy presenting an annual Christmas Concert in the St. George Tabernacle, Singing Valentines in February and patriotic events on Memorial Day and July 4th.  Participation in Barbershop Harmony Society regional and district conventions and contests is also an important part of a barbershopper’s life.  Color Country Chorus has won numerous awards over the years at these conventions.
