We are the oswego Valley Snowbelters Chorus

 

Oswego Valley Snowbelters Barbershop Chorus is a membership organization of singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 15 singers of all walks of life, and all parts of the Oswego area.

PERFORMANCE

The main purpose of Oswego Valley Snowbelters Barbershop Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. Our annual show is in early May. Our Christmas show is in early December.  We sing at a number of community events and at annual competitions. We also perform Singing Valentines around Valentines Day. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out out Hire Us section.

 

EDUCATION

In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a capella singing.  Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get outside coaching to help us improve our craft.

COMPETITION

Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges.  The winners of the district competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. In 2019 it will be in Salt Lake City from June 30 - July 7.  Click here to learn more.

QUARTETS

Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus.  Oswego Valley Snowbelters Barbershop Chorus currently is home to a quartet, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
