In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
The Mile High Chapter is home to Sound of the Rockies chorus and is a member of the world's largest all-male singing organization, the Barbershop Harmony Society, an organization of over 30,000 men of all ages, from all walks of life, who love to sing a cappella harmony.
Sound of the Rockies actively participates in and promotes a variety of singing activities along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.
We produce two shows each year, a Spring Show (typically in April), and a Christmas Show in December.
Quartets composed of members from the chorus spread Valentine cheer to sweethearts throughout the Metro area during our Singing Valentine program.
The Sound of the Rockies and several chapter quartets are active competitors, participating in district and international competitions sponsored by the Barbershop Harmony Society.
Bring harmony to your special event. The entire chorus or one of the chapter quartets can be engaged to provide entertainment for conventions, meetings, parties, fundraisers, weddings, or for other special occasions. If you love to sing, we encourage you to come by and explore the world of a cappella harmony with us.
