As we look ahead to emerging at long last from the pandemic, the Sounds of Aloha Chorus (SOA) looking for male singers who would like to give a cappella harmony a try! We strongly encourage interested singers to contact us now to learn more about our chorus. We had starting to have some outdoor rehearsals before the latest resrugence of COVID cases, and we still are meeting weekly online. We have organized remote singing projects, and we have user-friendly online tools to enable singers to learn remotely. We also ask everyone to monitor our Events page for our latest plans as we look forward to being able to meet again in person when it is safe to do so!

SOA has been entertaining audiences for over 70 years and is one of Hawaii's best-loved choral groups. We are over 40 voices strong and growing, in both size and musical excellence. Before we were interrupted, we'd gained six new members in the first part of 2020 who responded to invitations like this. We've done some exciting things lately -- including well-received virtual chorus performances this year -- and we hope to have plenty more to come once we can do so safely!

The Sounds of Aloha are proudly a barbershop chorus, but you can leave your straw hats and arm garters at home: although we love the old songs, the contemporary barbershop scene is much more! And please don't let the fact that SOA is an auditioned chorus deter you! We are strong music educators. No formal singing experience is needed if you can carry a tune and want to learn. Some of our members have music degrees and extensive singing backgrounds. But others don't read a note of music and had no prior choral experience before joining us; they just had a good ear—and heart!—for singing. The Sounds of Aloha pride ourselves on making ordinary voices produce extraordinary music—and we are out to entertain! We range in age from teenagers to nonagenarians, which is really cool in and of itself.

We do not exaggerate when we say singing with SOA could be life-changing. Besides making great music, our members enjoy a remarkable camaraderie. We laugh a whole lot and have tons of fun! When we finally resume normal weekly rehearsals, we hope to welcome guests to join us on Thursday nights, 6:45-9:30 p.m. at the Ala Wai Golf Course Clubhouse, 2nd floor ballroom (but -- coronavirus or not -- always confirm meeting details for a particular week on our Events page). When we do, we will be observing best practices to ensure the health and safety of all participants. We can't wait to begin once again to welcome new singers!
