Racing City Chorus is a men's singing organization, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 50 singers from all walks of life, and all parts of the Saratoga Springs area.
The main purpose of Racing City Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We also perform Singing Valentines around Valentines Day. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals and a very important component of the chorus experience. From time to time, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we hope to improve the quality of our singing.
From time to time, Racing City Chorus participates in the Northeastern Division and District chorus competitions. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our district to come together to sing for each other, and receive constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the district competition in both quartet and chorus categories travel to the Barbershop Harmony Society International Competition, which is held in July each year.
In addition to singing in the chorus many members form their own quartets to further enjoy barbershop singing and performing. Racing City Chorus currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to learn more about Our Quartets.
