The Sounds of Aloha Chorus (SOA) has a standing invitation to men of all ages to come try some a cappella harmonizing -- especially late in year for the holiday season! Lately a lot of guys are taking us up on it: we've gained 17 new members, including three in their 20s, one over 70, two active duty military service members, eight with very extensive choral experience, and three with little at all! 

Things are on the upswing for SOA; we are growing in musical excellence as well as size, we've been doing a lot of terrific things. And guys, what better time to come do some singing than the holidays? Guests of all kinds, but especially prospective singers, are welcome at any SOA chorus rehearsal. Our preparations for the holidays kick off on October 17!

If you could use some more music and fun in your life (or if you 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 seriously owe it to yourself just to come take a chance. Leave your straw hats and arm garters at home, though; we love the old songs, but the contemporary barbershop scene is so much more!

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 lots of 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, nonagenarians, and everybody in between, which is pretty darn cool. 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 6:45 to 9:30 p.m. But 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. 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 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!
