The Sounds of Aloha Chorus has a standing invitation to men of all ages to come try some a cappella harmonizing. Things have been on the upswing for SOA in 2017, and we are growing! There couldn't be a better time for new singers to drop by a rehearsal and try a little a cappella. Check out what we've been up to in recent months, and check out some of what's to come. We're gearing up for our October 7 Halloween show, and we are looking for singers who would like to be part of that, even just to try it out by appearing for a few songs.
We rehearse on Thursday nights at the Ala Golf Course Clubhouse at 404 Kapahulu Avenue, in the second floor ballroom known as the Palladium, from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. If you (or a guy you know) could use some more music and fun in your life, 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 have a thing for contemporary a cappella music but aren't sure how to pursue it, you really owe it to yourself to take a chance and just come visit!
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 inspiring 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 singing experience, while others join who never have sung in a choral group before and can't sight-read a note of music but have a good ear (and heart) for singing. Learn about joining the chorus here. Our members include teenagers, octogenarians, and everybody in between. We just need more of them!
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 the music, the joy, laughter, and fellowship Sounds of Aloha members enjoy are truly something special. We can't wait to share it all with more people this year!
