Welcome!

Racing City Chorus is an extraordinary group of gentlemen who gather together in celebration of the artform known as barbershop music. We are a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

 

Our director is Rich Gervais who inspires us to reach new heights with each performance. We can be heard throughout the year, singing for civic and charitable organizations, private groups, churches, community events, parades and fundraisers.

Racing City Chorus to sing National Anthem at ValleyCats game.

 ValleyCats logo 3 The Tri-City Valley Cats will be the defending champions of the New York/Penn League this season.  The Racing City Chorus has been invited to sing at the Joe Bruno Stadium on the HVCC campus on Friday, August 29 at 7:00 p.m., and it will be an Oktoberfest Celebration.  After the game against the Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets), there will be a Diamond Dig where single ladies get to dig for a diamond around home plate using spoons.  After the gem is located by one of the lucky participants, fireworks will light up the sky.  Needless to say, a large crowd is anticipated with RCC enhancing the festivities, with the National Anthem and God Bless America.

Fun Information

 Did you ever wonder why men's barbershop music is written on the treble and bass clef while the notes actually sung are really bass clef notes?  Below is the first line of My Wild Irish Rose written as actually sung with the tenor part in black, the lead in red, the bari in green and the bass in blue!  Now you know.
