SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 28, 2018 — The Peninsulaires Chorus, Silicon Valley's Barbershop Chorus SM, announces its annual Free Open House open to the public.
On June 28, 2018, Want to know how to sing in a Barbershop Quartet? There is a fraternity (and sorority) dedicated this style. You can come to check it out, or come just to listen to some music.
For those of you that are familiar with us, enjoy some good barbershop singing, as Peninsulaires Chorus recently won first place division AA tier again this year, and the Marvelous Maidens of Mission Valley are now enjoying their championship year! Besides these choruses, there will be musical numbers by a few quartets. The students of our Vocal Clinic will graduate ... Then the finale of the evening will be their recital, where we all join the students to sing a song in 8-part harmony!
This free admission evening will be from 7:30-10:30, 535 Old San Francisco Road (Behind the Methodist Church). But feel free to stay a bit afterwards to try your hand at sing a barbershop "standard" with a pick-up quartet. Music for these suggested "standards" can be downloaded for free from the Barbershop Harmony Society at:
