Apologies for the late notice of this announcement.
Sound of the Rockies extends an invitation to all men who enjoy a
cappella singing to join us Thursday, April 7 for a special guest
night that will introduce you to the members, camaraderie, and
repertoire of an energetic, 100 voice men's a cappella chorus.
Formed in 2000 from a merger of two smaller choruses, SoR is a
competitive show chorus, performing regularly along the Front Range,
and competing at both the district and international Barbershop
Harmony Society contests. SoR is the current Rocky Mountain District
Champion, and the chorus placed 6th at last summer's International
competition in Louisville, KY. Nearly all SoR members are amateur
singers who are dedicated to mastering good vocal production
techniques, practicing to achieve excellence, and performing with
passion and energy to provide memorable shows for our audiences.
SoR will be competing this July in Salt Lake City, and members are
actively working on the competition set. The chorus will also be
practicing for a show in Fort Morgan on April 17, so guest night will
provide an excellent opportunity to visit a rehearsal, observe a
significant portion of our repertoire, and see if you might be
interested in joining a vibrant musical group whose members are
dedicated to excellence in singing and performing.
As a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, SoR has its roots in
the barbershop tradition, and most arrangements are performed with
close, 4-part harmony (bass, baritone, lead, and tenor). The chorus,
however, embraces a wide variety of musical styles beyond the
traditional barbershop numbers, including Broadway, patriotic,
Western, Swing, 50s, gospel, classical, and others.
Rehearsals are normally held Thursday evenings at 7:00pm St. Luke's
United Methodist Church, 8817 S. Broadway, Highlands Ranch. and are
always open to anyone who would like to join the chorus for an evening
of a cappella harmony. If you are unable to make it for Guest Night,
please consider visiting a rehearsal another week (if you do plan to
come to a rehearsal, check the web site for any last minute changes in
time or location).

questions, I will be happy to answer them for you.
