About Baton Rouge Chorus

We are an a cappella chorus that loves to sing and perform. Our style is called Barbershop which means four parts in tight harmony, some glitz, and a true sisterhood. We welcome singers of all levels of experience, age, walks of life, and from all parts of the Baton Rouge area.

 
Performance 

We typically do an annual show, and we participate in community events. We also take part in an annual competition. We 'd love to sing at your next function or event. So, if you're looking for a unique musical experience please check out our Hire Us section.


Education

Learning more about the art of a cappella singing is an integral part of chorus life. Vocal instruction is included in each rehearsal and helps us grow as singers and performers. We also get coaching from a visiting masters in the art of barbershop who share insights into the finer points of the craft.


Competition

Each spring we participate in the Region 10 chorus competition in Houston, Texas. Competition is a special time for quartets and choruses to come together to sing for one another; and to get constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to participate in International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected by the International Board. This year International Competition will be held in St. Louis and in 2019 it will be New Orleans! Click here to learn more.

Quartets

Often members of a chorus come together to form a quartet. They practice and sing together in addition to singing with the chorus. It's a fun way to build musical skills and sisterhood.  Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
