There are two showtimes. Please double-check the showtime on your tickets before submitting your order.

Fresh off a Top-10 finish at the Barbershop Harmony Society's 2017 International Chorus Contest in Las Vegas, NV, San Francisco's Fog City Singers present a series of two summer concerts mashing together the traditions of barbershop and musical theater.

The program will center on a cappella renditions of musical-theater songs past and present, culminating in an appearance from award-winning Bay Area actress and veritable vocal superstar Jocelyn Pickett as soloist on two new arrangements. The chorus will also debut an original arrangement from local composer Joshua Feltman (link), an accomplished cross-disciplinary musician who was literally born into a barbershop household!

NOTE: Fog City's past three concert seasons have sold out well in advance, so please purchase your tickets early to guarantee a seat!

Fog City Singers - "The Mad Hatter" (from "Wonderland," 2011)

At our summer concerts, Jocelyn Pickett closed her guest segment with "The Mad Hatter"—a rousing, rebellious number from the short-lived 2011 musical "Wonderland," arranged in-house by our director Chris Lewis. We absolutely sprinted to learn this whole arrangement between International and our first concert in August. Here's the result!
