The Seattle SeaChordsmen, a men's chorus, has been "Pursuing Excellence in Harmony" by bringing the joy of Barbershop harmony to music lovers in the Seattle area since its founding in 1949. Barbershop music is a capella, four-part harmony, an American art form which dates back to the late 19th century. Proud as they are of their appearances in Barbershop harmony contests, SeaChordsmen get their greatest enjoyment from public performances. The Singing Valentine program was inaugurated over a decade ago, delivering "love"-ly messages to lovers, co-workers, and friends. The chorus has been a regular performer at the Folklife Festival for several years, and during the Christmas season the chorus participates in the Figgy Pudding songfest in downtown Seattle, where last year they tied for best chorus. The SeaChordsmen have appeared at sports venues, and they regularly provide entertainment for social and business gatherings. Their popular Summer and Holiday Shows are presented annually at venues in the Seattle area. Please review the Seattle Sings calendar for upcoming show and event schedules. They welcome men of all ages as guests at every Tuesday rehearsal.
