The Silk City Chorus of Manchester Welcomes you!
Manchester Silk City Chorus from Together in Song on.
The Silk City Chorus is an 80-man chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society- an international organization dedicated to preserving the particular barbershop style of singing in four-part a capella harmony.
The Manchester Chapter, organized in 1963 with 20 members, has grown during its forty- one year history to become one of the premier choruses in the state and in southern New England. During those years the chorus has won its share of Division Championships and in the past decade has consistently placed amongst the top 10 choruses in the Northeast District (New England, Eastern New York, the Canadian Maritime Provinces and the Province of Quebec).
The chorus, under the capable direction of Todd Lamson, is currently the Yankee Divisions' 2005 Champions and placed 3rd in the Providence RI District Competitions. In 2004 the chorus was given the Most Improved Chorus award as well as being the Championship Chorus.
The Chapter enjoys a wide diversity of membership with members from 20 to 70 years of age. Its members come from nearly 45 communities in several states. The Silk City Chorus rehearses every Monday evening at 7:15 PM at the Second Congregational Church, 385 Main Street; Manchester, Connecticut.
