The Land of the Sky Chorus sings popular music in the “Barbershop” style—four-part consonant a cappella harmonies featuring dominant seventh chords. If you don't know what any of that means, just know that the thrill of harmonizing cutting-edge Barbershop arrangements simply defies description—sing them and feel it!
We perform an entertaining variety of harmony, comedy, visual vitality and audience participation—all aspects of Barbershop performance artistry. Joyful, giggling, cheering audiences inspire us to create more wonderful art in each successive performance!
We live creative leadership—seeking, developing, using and enhancing the skills and talents of each member to such an extent that progress seems limitless. Our superb educational organization develops harmony singers, a cappella choral directors, performance coaches, emcees and many other creative leaders!
We inspire youth through educational outreaches and support for vocal music arts programs. These outreaches and programs develop music skills, build social self-esteem and feed positive energy into young people’s lives!
The Asheville Chapter was determined to be the #1 chapter in the Society for the 2010 Chapter Achievement Program.
