For nearly 50 years, our chorus has been making sweet music in Prescott and through out northern Arizona.
Formed in 1963 as the Manzanita Chorus, members searched for a new name to better represent the landscape of Prescott. Song of The Pines just seemed to be the right fit.
Song of the Pines Chorus performs twelve months of the year. They have been privileged to perform at the J. S. Acker Musical Showcase each December in downtown Prescott, at local schools, businesses, Adult Centers, nursing homes, service organizations, private parties; and just about any place where good music is desired.
In addition to performing on a local level, Song of the Pines chorus members have opportunities to travel, compete at regional contests, and also participate in Sweet Adelines International venues throughout the world.
Chorus membership averages around twenty-seven voices singing in four-part a cappella harmony – barbershop style . New members are always welcome, including beginners – all you need is a desire to sing!
“It’s like a sisterhood. It’s a social network, wherever you go, and we get to share a unifying bond. We share not only the music, but an emotional bond, too. It’s a real American art style,” says former director Suzy Lobaugh of the barbershop style.
