For More Than 73 Years!
Welcome toTacoma's premier Men's Barbershop Harmony Chorus within Washington State.
We proudly call Division II our home within the Evergreen District of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS).
Founded in 1946, we have been entertaining audiences with close harmony for more than 73 years and are today one of the BHS's fastest growing chapters in the nation. So, what are you waiting for? Just hum along until you learn your part and helps us Keep the Whole World Singing!
What is our common culture? Here is what we believe...
We are welcoming to all. That includes everyone.
We sing in a fair & safe environment.
We do not judge others, especially on their singing ability.
We turn off all tech on the risers.
We wait to be invited to join the chorus on the risers.
We adhere to the Ten-Second Rule*.
We do not sing or hum when the pitch is blown.
We do not sing or hum when other sections are singing, we listen instead.
We defer questions to section leaders whenever possible.
We wait to privately give criticism and praise of leadership, including the director.
We are committed to attending rehearsal or performance for the entire duration.
We are active recruiters. Singing is more fun when we are able to share it with our brothers.
We have fun at the right time.
We spread the joy of harmony through song and performance.
*When the Director pauses rehearsal, please wait 10 seconds for instructions before starting side conversations.
