The SeaChordsmen participated in the 30th Annual Great Figgy PuddingCaroling Competition and enjoyed every minute of this fun and worthwhile event. We raised over $1500, sang a great variety of Holiday songs, and made more friends all at the same time. It was great having our old friend Paul Ellinger sing with us and present us with the First Annual SUPERCHARGED Chapter of the Year!!
On Tuesday, October 18 2016, the SeaChordsmen hosted their annual "Capture Your Voice and Sing" night with these wonderful 11 guys. For the next five weeks they will learn the joys of singing Barbershop music under tutelage of the chorus director Ted Chamberlain. From the smiles on their faces, we're guessing they had a good time. It's not too late for any interested male to start next week.
The audience loved the performance of "Disney Noir" based upon comments from our Social Media sites. The Henchmen (pictured above), Cruella DeVil, our hero Steve, heroine Belle, and the SeaChordsmen all delivered a performance for the ages. Then include current Evergreen District Quartet Champs 4.O, AND international quartet Main Street into the mix and the effect was tremendous.
Please come to Guest Night on 19 July, 7:00pm, and maybe you'll be on stage with us in October as we compete at the district competition in Vancouver, WA.
The Seattle SeaChordsmen once again perform and teach the art of Barbershop singing to the folks at the 34th Northwest Folklife Festival. Director Ted Chamberlain conducts a quick class about Barbershop singing and soon has everyone singing several Tags (the short phrases at the end of songs). The finale has audience members singing a song (Aura Lee) under his direction. They were great.
The SeaChordsmen conducted a weekend retreat at beautiful Pilgram Firs Camp and Conference Center in Port Orchard, WA. We put in many hours of intensive rehearsal for our upcoming show, "Disney Noir". This show is the MUST SEE, CAN'T MISS barbershop event of the Summer!!
The SeaChordsmen is a Barbershop Chorus of 50 members who perform barbershop harmony in public and private performances. The Chorus also aids youth music education through their support of the Ballard High School music program and the Harmony Explosion Northwest youth music program. The organization provides annual support to the Pike Place Senior Center and Food Bank, Mary's Place, and Path with Art as a way of giving back to their community.
