About The Florida Suncoast Chorus
Florida Suncoast Chorusis a membership organization of singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently haveover 30 singers of all walks of life, and all parts of Pinellas County. We are one of 800 Chapters of the Barberhop Harmony Society, an international organization of 25,000 members all over the world.
The main purpose of Florida Suncoast Chorusis to perform for our community. We sing at our own shows, at other venues, many community events, parties, and company events. We also deliver Singing Telegrams around Valentines Day. Our Chorus and our Chapter Quartets are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.
In certain years, the Florida Suncoast Chorus has participated in the "Sunshine District" Regional Competition. This is a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. In 2015, International Competition will be held in Pittsburgh. Click here to learn more.
We have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Florida Suncoast Chorus currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
