FCS is gearing up for Summer Set, and we're looking for talented new singers to join us.
Fog City Singers is San Francisco's newest men's chorus, aiming to bring professional-quality treatment to the American barbershop style. Founded in Fall 2015, we've already performed our first concert set and won first place in the 2016 NorCal barbershop chorus competition, hosted annually by the Barbershop Harmony Society's Far Western District.
This summer, we're diving deep into the barbershop style. We're looking for dormant barbershoppers and—especially—strong voices from other backgrounds to share in the experience. (One of our primary goals with this group is to share this wonderful art form with singers interested in expanding their horizons.) We'll learn barbershop music from throughout the past century, works from other styles that influenced the barbershop sound, and at least three works arranged or composed exclusively for our chorus (!).
Best of all, we'll aim to have fun doing it. We believe whole-heartedly that camaraderie fuels passion, and passion fuels performance. To this end, we'll provide plenty of opportunities to get to know each other both inside and outside of rehearsal.
Rehearse will be on most Monday evenings from 7:30pm – 10pm, with one 11am – 2pm Saturday rehearsal per month to allow us to enjoy SF by day. The exact rehearsal calendar is available on our Events page.
The set will culminate with a concert in August on either Saturday, 8/20, or Saturday, 8/27 (exact date TBD).
