The Columbia River Chordsmen are the Tri Cities, Washington affiliate of the Barbershop Harmony Society. We are members of the Evergreen District, which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and Alberta. The chorus is made up of members from the Columbia River Valley in Southeastern Washington, and Northeastern Oregon.
We sing a cappella music in the Barbershop Style. Our repertoire includes Classic Barbershop, Swing, Doo-Wop, and Gospel. We feature both the chorus and quartets in performances and shows. We try to perform at least once each month; reaching out to the community to support those under-served by live performance such as schools, senior centers, retirement homes, etc. We regularly perform National Anthems at Tri City American Hockey Games, Dust Devil Baseball Games, and Fever Football Games.
We put on Shows about once each quarter, with an annual Spring Show, a Fall Show, and a Holiday Show as part of our annual performance planning.
All are welcome, no experience necessary! As long as you like to sing, we’ll teach you everything you need to know to enjoy our wonderful hobby. Most of our members don’t read music or have any formal musical background – they just love to sing! We provide music and part-specific learning tracks to help our members learn. We provide vocal coaching and singing lessons free of charge.
If you’re looking for a way to relieve stress, have some fun, and enjoy camaraderie of some great guys – we hope you visit us and give it a try.
