      In addition to the announcements and upcoming events described below, Sound of the Rockies would like to
      invite any male a cappella singers who are free on Thursday evenings (and who might have a little competitive
      blood in their veins mixed in with the harmony) to join the chorus as it prepares to represent the Rocky Mountain
      District at next July's
      Barbershop Harmony Society Convention and Contest to be held right here in Denver, Colorado!
      Sound of the Rockies has placed among the top 10 choruses at the last 6 competitions, and members have every
      intention of medalling next July. 
      If you are interested please visit http://soundoftherockies.com/About_Us/about_us.html for rehearsal information.

      Announcements and Upcoming Events 

      Rocky Mountain District Contest News
      Sound of the Rockies brought home the Rocky Mountain District championship for the fifth consecutive year on a drizzly weekend in Layton, Utah. With snow dusting the mountaintops and a cold rain persisting through the contest, SOR qualified to compete in the International Barbershop Harmony Society convention to be held in Denver, CO in July of 2007. It will be the chorus’s sixth straight International competition.

      New Sound of the Rockies quartet, MOJO, won the Rocky Mountain District Quartet championship, with an average score of 76.1%.  With MOJO’s win, the quartet championship went to an SOR chapter quartet for the third consecutive year, and for the fourth time in the past five years.

      Completing the competition ‘triple play’ for the Mile High Chapter was Senior’s Quartet, Category 4.  In their debut contest appearance, Category 4 won the Senior’s division, thereby qualifying to compete in the Senior’s Quartet contest at the BHS Mid-Winter Convention in January, 2007, in Albuquerque, NM.

      The convention audience was treated to a show of champs to close out the weekend’s festivities. The stage was graced by past RMD champs, Heritage West, US Male, Spellbound, Ignition, NeXus, and Storm Front.
