The Delta Kings Barbershop Chorus is inviting all men who like to sing to come to any of our chorus rehearsals, Monday Nights at 7:00 P.M. at our regular rehearsal hall, Harmony Lodge. (See map below.)
“Males of all ages who enjoy singing and would like to know more about vocal harmony are welcome to see, hear and enjoy what barbershop style is all about,” said Mike Banish, President of the Cincinnati Chapter and Assistant Director. No vocal training or musical knowledge is necessary, simply a love of singing and an interest in harmony .
There is no charge, and attendees will learn and participate in the distinctive a cappella four-part barbershop harmony singing. They will hear demonstrations of it by quartets, octets and see how the full chorus rehearses. They will also be welcome to join in the singing of familiar songs and receive coaching in vocal techniques.
Those who attend will hear about the wide variety of programs and activities that the Delta Kings engage in throughout Greater Cincinnati, including many that benefit the community. Refreshments will be served and there will be time for socializing with Delta Kings members and other guests. The program will end at 9:30, but guests are welcome to stay after for more relaxed socializing, singing and enjoyment.
“We’d like our guests to experience the fun of ‘ringing chords” in four-part barbershop harmony that men all over the world enjoy who are part of this hobby. We saw this in July in Anaheim, California as singers from Sweden to Australia came to compete in our International Convention and sing side by side with us in perfect harmony,” said Bob Reckers, President of the chorus’s Cincinnati Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, which was started here in 1944.
