The Sounds of Aloha Chorus has a standing invitation to men of all ages to come try some a cappella harmonizing. Lately a lot of guys are taking us up on it: so far in 2018 we have 14 new members, including several in their 20s and one over 70! Things are on the upswing for SOA, and we are growing in musical excellence as well as size! Guests of all kinds, but especially prospective singers, are welcome at any chorus rehearsal. If you could use some more music and fun in your life (or know a guy who could), or if you're curious about barbershop harmony, or if you sing in church and want to give another style of music a try, or if you like contemporary a cappella groups, you owe it to yourself to take a chance! Leave your straw hats and arm garters at home, though; we still love the old songs, but times have changed!

SOA aims high musically, but we have a strong commitment to teaching and developing the musical and performance talents of our members. Led by our gifted musical director Mark Conching, we pride ourselves on our ability to teach ordinary singers to perform extraordinarily. Some guys come to SOA with degrees in music and extensive vocal experience, while others join who never have sung in a choral group before and can't sight-read a note but have a good ear (and heart) for singing. Our members include teenagers, octogenarians, and everybody in between. Learn about joining the chorus here. Or if you just want to come check us out sometime, that's good too. Sometimes we even hold a Guest Singer Program, where we invite guys to come learn just a few songs with us and sing them with us in a performance.

We normally rehearse at the Ala Wai Golf Course Clubhouse at 404 Kapahulu Avenue, in the second floor ballroom known as the Palladium, from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. But please double-check our Events listing to confirm the details for the current week or to learn about our upcoming performances. And check us out on Facebook to see more of what we are up to -- and to see the guys who have been joining us lately!  

Please help us spread the word to men you know! We do not exaggerate when we say the message could be life-changing. Seriously. Aside from our music, the joy, laughter, and fellowship Sounds of Aloha members enjoy are truly something special. We love that we're sharing it all with more people!

P.S. Women interested in singing barbershop harmony should check out one or both local choruses of our sisters-in-song, the Sweet Adelines: Honolulu Blend Show Chorus and Na Leo Lani!
