We are the Land of the Sky Men’s Barbershop Harmony Chorus!
The Land of the Sky Chorus is the performance name of the Asheville Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The Chapter is an educational and fraternal singing organization open to men who like to sing.
In particular, we sing “Barbershop” – a style of unaccompanied four-part harmony. Our weekly Tuesday rehearsals are open for any guests—music educators, choral students and lovers of the art, as well as men interested in learning to sing Barbershop harmony. Rehearsals are full of creative and artistic opportunities, laughter, education, leadership opportunities and fun.
We draw our members from Buncombe, Henderson, Haywood, Transylvania and Madison counties and surrounding areas of western North Carolina and South Carolina. Members range in age from 13 to 80 and are from diverse walks of life. We find valuable skills and knowledge, and joyful and welcoming common ground in singing harmony.
As members of the Barbershop Harmony Society, we are purveyors of Barbershop. This uniquely American vocal music art form innately delights singers and listeners alike. Through harmonious and hilarious performances, a cappella choral and quartet education, and philanthropic outreaches, Land of the Sky Chorus seeks to inspire harmony and enrich the communities we influence.
Our Mission is:
to be a fraternity of friends sharing the joy of singing together while promoting personal musical growth and a cappella excellence
to promote and support music programs that enrich local youth in our schools and elsewhere, and
to perform for the benefit, enjoyment, and enhancement of our local community.
We've even been performing yearly at the Southern Conference Basketball finals in Asheville!
